I have been looking for a female black spoo (husband wants black, I just want a spoo), and happened upon a breeder that I think is awesome that has only white males. She does puppy temperament testing, and I have spoken with a couple of folks that have adopted pups from her that simply rave about their boys. It seems that all the lay people (by "lay" I mean people that don't have experience with spoos) insist that females make better pets. They say that females tend to be less rowdy, easier to potty and obedience train, and to just live with in general. I'm thinking that I should purchase a pup based on it's temperament testing results and not its sex...does anybody else have any advice or thoughts? Anybody end up with a spoo of a color other than what you (or your spouse) thought you wanted? I have a sweet little female cocker spaniel and also want a puppy that is likely to get along with her.
