If it weren't for the cute and girly clothes and bows, I would get another boy for my next dog.

Okay, I held off long enough. The difference is a boy has a penis and a girl has a vulva. That is it. Other than the obvious difference the personality difference depends on the environment they come into. I believe...based on experience...that an only boy is devoted to his family. However, again from my experience, when you bring a female doggie into the family, the male changes...he becomes utterly devoted to her.

Both of my small white dogs were spoiled and utterly devoted, until I brought a little girl in to the mix. They changed completely. They became devoted to the girl and felt comfortable playing second fiddle. Now, I only have two generations of experience, so take it for what it is worth.

I have both, (both sltered) the Male is more sedate an the female is more barky & prissy. He is always there, nearby watching..., but not a cuddler---she always wants to touch me. He was 3.5 yrs old an loves having a little sis. He puts up with a LOT from her. They are bestest friends. I dress them both up. They are wearing matching winter sweaters right now! (his is blue & hers is pink)

And I have only had female Maltese who have all be utterly devoted to their mommy! My two frequently compete with each other for my lap and my kisses! So it's not just the boys who are cuddle bugs.

Honestly, it really is the personality of the individual dog. Laws of supply and demand tend to drive the higher prices for females.

Pipper is a boy and he was so incredibly easy to housebreak that it was almost scary. I kept thinking....how does he know this already. He's still young so when he's awake he's pretty busy playing, but still won't let me out of his sight. When he's sleepy thats all he wants is to snuggle up on the couch with me. He either is on my lap or squished as close to me as he can possibly get. He absolutely adores my young grandchildren. Actually he loves everyone once he gets to know them. He's amazing!

Ok Sylvia, I'll reword my original question for you even though it's been answered... why does a vulva cost $2,000 more?
