Hi Pankie,

Just so you know, and don't accidentally stumble into a conversational nest of hornets... The whole "it's how you raise them" concept is a matter of controversy here. It's true that puppies are "naive and pure," but they do have biogenetic predispositions. The degree to which those predispositions determine a dog's ultimate behavior is, as far as I can tell, not really known. So, debate rages -- is it 90%? Is it 15%? 50%? :dunno: Some people here seem to hold strong opinions on the matter; try not to take it offensively.
