Lari wanted a girl because she didn't want a humping male dog...... Guess what? Lari is the only one that HRH humps!!
My little princess can be a BI@@@ sometimes already and she's only 7 months. She's very possessive with certain toys and if Wilson has one that she wants she gets in his face and then that turns into a fight. Which happened again this morning I might add. Three times now. I've always had male dogs and oh man these females are wonderful but they have quite an attitude, well at least mine does. She's quite sweet too. If we ever get another, it'll be another male.

Must be a female thing...Karly is the same way. They get along great most of the time but when they do get rambunctious then it's time to go to seperate corners!
I say go for it just be sure to get her spayed. Then you just have to protect him cause she'll be trying to hump him every chance she gets...or at least that's what Karly does. lol
I do have a male and a female. Both of mine have been challenging. I think it is because I got them both as babies together. If I had to do it again I would have gotten the male first, let him calm down and trained then gotten the female. Katara is the best pup with my kids, she is calm and listens to them, but she is also a PITA with Aldo... she will attack him and then they do get into pretty bad fights... I have been able to stop the last 3 fights before they intensified though so that's a proud moment for me How old is your boy?

If you want a girl then get her. Cutty gave me a lot of when he was young and now with Miila... she reminds me of Orion actually. Crazy insane, but thankfully we were able to get her bad attitude under control. Now I just have to deal with CRAZY quirks of hers, like wanting to get ahold of every plastic bag she hears. Changing trash bags is fun! lol So long as you are pack leader (and trust me if I can learn to lead her you can too) it will be fine. You could go boy or girl and starting out as pups you should be good to go either way. I regret none of my pups.
I had always grown up to believe females were more submissive, but since learned from my own that boys are quite frisky but they don't hold grudges. I really think it is their personality trait also. Bertha was always a firecracker since the day she was born, Marlow was always laid back.
I think it is always a more safe way to go one male one female if you have the choice. Females tend to only bicker with other females in my house. They all get along great with the boys. but it could be that the boys are just more submissive and I am lucky that way.
