Maralynn Posted September 16, 2006 Report Share Posted September 16, 2006 Here's a question for all those with working dogs - if you had a choice between a pup, or a young adult who looked promising, which one whould you choose? And why? I'm a little torn, I like, really like the fact that the adult seems to have most of the characteristics that I'm looking for. And I could start working with him right away. But on the other hand, I'd kinda like a pup. Mostly because I've never raised one. And they're CUTE (all those recent pictures have been a bad influence on me ). The other issue is Missy, who can be a little quirky when it comes to other dogs. She wants her space to begin with, or can get snarky. The other dogs she has been around are either goofy (she gets snarky) or aloof. The only dog I've ever seen her play with was a puppy, and that was just this past summer (I've had her 4 yrs). I'm sure I could meet the other dog before I decide, but he's a 4-5 hr drive away. So I really want to figure out all the pros and cons ahead of time. So what kind of advice can you give me?
