Question: Should I pick a Male or Female dog?

Answer: Females are much more intent upon showing their dominance by participating in behaviors such as fighting to establish who is in charge. Most fights will usually break out between two females. I have never had a fight between two males or a male and female, but have had to break up fights between two girls.

Males, on the other hand, are usually more affectionate and outgoing, attentive, and seek your attention more often.. They are very attached to their people. They can also be more accepting of other pets. Most boys are easily motivated by praise, and are very eager to please which makes training easier.

Neutered males rarely exhibit secondary sexual behavior such as "marking" or lifting their leg. Boys who were neutered early (by 5 months of age) usually don't ever raise their leg to urinate since they no longer have the higher testosterone level of a unneutered dog. The housetraining of a neutered male is no different than the housetraining of a female.


Question: What would make me comfortable buying my new puppy from Magnolia Hill Breeders?

Answer: Jim & Susan have been hobby breeders since 1998. They offer the most flexible health guarantee of most breeders. They know one year covers any genetic defect (2 YEARS IF YOU USE THE VITAMINS THEY RECOMMEND). They offer 10 days to take your new puppy for its first vet visit instead of 72 hours. They encourage you to call them with any problems or questions during and after the sale, no matter how long it has been. They use top quality sires and dams to produce your beautiful new puppy, both in the breeding standard and a sweet and happy temperament.


Question: When can I hold my new puppy or take it home?

Question: How has my new puppy been cared for and socialized?

Answer: Your puppy has been been brought up after four weeks into our sitting room and bedroom. If you give us your puppy's new name, we will start call it by that name so it will know its name when it goes home. We get your puppy used to going outside to go to the bathroom - however more work will be required at home.
