Thanks for replying and the nice words. I was hoping to talk to you. I had a dog once that looked just like your new pup. That dog was amazing!!!
I was always told that I would never be able to keep 2 females together, and now I have 3 all together. Then I was told this past year that I would never be able to keep 2 males at the same time. But my first male is alot older and I did have to remind him alot to "BE NICE" when I had this last litter and decided to keep 2 out of it. One being a male. I do worry when I have a female in heat that they might fight, but so far so good. The older one actually washes and lays by the younger one. But it has helped that the younger one is a very mellow dog with no desire to be the alpha in the house. I did have one pup I wanted to keep, but he was just too aggressive to stay with my gang. I do not allow any rough housing or hard playing and I have a commend..."BE Nice" that all the dogs knows that it means "stop and be calm". It takes conditioning I do believe. But my dogs are delivered by me and raised in the house where they are born. I carry & kiss them until they are too big to lift! (I think that has an effect on them)
Maybe it also helps that all of mine are related and they know they are. They still go to their respective mothers to be washed and stuff.
It's a pleasure to met you. You have a beautiful family.
Hope to talk soon.
If I can help in any way, just ask me!
