    I'm wondering if this is just a regional thing but I've noticed that an overwhelmingly high number of us have female dogs. Or, rather, few gay male dog owners have at least one male dog. This is not a fem/masc thread so don't turn it into one, please. Just wondering if we as gays feel more comfortable with girl dogs, or if female dogs represent something? Or maybe there are more girl dogs available?

    Girl dogs aren't as bad about marking their territory as male dogs.

    Males tend to be larger than females and I like big dogs so I tend to prefer males. My last one, a hybrid wolf, was a 100 lbs solid. He was stunning, seriously stopped traffic. I'd never seen that before but throughout his life, from puppy to old age, people would pull their cars off the road to say hello to wolfpuppy during our walks. That dog had personality plus. His mother was 60 lbs and the father was well over 100, gorgeous animal, very wolfy but also very friendly.

    Though my previous female Weimar was relatively calm--and I get that I'm risking being accused of misogyny, but--I've found that many females tend to be more aggressive towards other dogs and so I also prefer the friendlier males as they seem to me to socialize better with their dog park play mates.

    I've always had female dogs because they tend to have a better temperament. I don't have to worry about other dogs going all alpha dog crazy when we're at the park or the beach.

    I used to work at a veterinary hospital and it was always the gay guys who would buy the fake testicle implants for their neutered dogs, so there's that.

    I never wanted a male dog -- but fell in love with my pup Max Power when I first laid eyes on him. he's a sweet heart and I'm glad he's in my life.

    I think I never wanted a male dog because we always had female ones growing up -- and I didn't want a male dog going around jizzing on everything (I do that enough, I don't need extra). but he was fixed when I got him, soo.....problem solved!

    Yeah. It's really a thing.

    I guess if you have a big masc breed of dog you want to get him big fake ball implants or people might doubt how masc your world is.

    When we went to look at puppies, there were two, a brother and sister. We didn't know which was which. I grabbed one, handed the pup to my partner, and we've been inseperable since. Our boy, Fox, is the dog in the picture to the left. We love him to no end. I believe he is a God-Send. icon_biggrin.gif


    By the way, before leaving the breeder's home, another reason we knew we made the right decision was because our boy was calm and quiet, and the female wouldn't stop running around or shut up for one second! I didn't make up the stereotype, I'm just pointing out what happened.

    I know females are said to be more independent. Less caring about you and what your doing as much as male dogs. This was explained to me as males being more pack oriented. I prefer male dogs as the female ones I have known are not as friendly.

    Our dogs by happenstance all managed to be male, except for our most recent, Emma.

    if i could do it all over again, i would have not only picked maccabee, well, actually he picked me.... he was the only one of the litter of 7 that greeted me when i sat on the floor in the breeders house. he hopped/walked over to me, sniffed my shoe, leg and jeans, then promptly climbed onto my lap, looked up at me with those big brown boston terrier eyes, curled up into a tight ball then fell fast asleep......... anyway, his little sister was the runt of the litter, and i would have loved to have had the space for both of them. however, having said that, i like male dogs as they just are a tad bigger than the females. also, and like a previous poster said, the males are a bit more rough and tumble. i love to rough house with maccabee. what can i say, he had me at WOOF. dogs are some of the best creatures god put on this planet. i NEVER would have made it through cancer treatment without my 'best friend'. he's the reason why i keep going. otherwise............................................

    'Cause bitches like their nails polished and wearing outfits.

    I had a female Great Dane that would lay on the floor and let you paint her nails. Her nails were always painted the colors of the holiday season (red - Christmas/Valentines, silver - New Years, red, white, and blue - Memorial day and 4th of July, orange and black - Halloween, etc.). and when she would go for her walks through the French Quarter she wore a flowered wreath on ther head and the bitch KNEW she looked good. Tourist would take her picture and carriage drivers knew her by name and would point her out to the tourist onboard. Sadly she has passed.

    Since the female, I have a male Great Dane and he will not sit still for me to even paint his nails black. He's black and I thought shiny black nails would look great. He thinks otherwise.

    nope. and not only on the dogs, but here in the good old US of A, you can get them for your trucks and suv's. they are called hitch hangers or trucknutz. they swing on the rear bumper. isn't america great?

    enjoy.

    All of our pets (dog and cats) are neutered males. Most of our friends have male dogs.

    I'm guessing you have a really small sample size.

    Actually, I am the loving and proud owner of a Dominant Female.

    Basically a Female Dog that is VERY territorial and marks the same way a Male does.

    She is considered to be a Show Quality animal and She basically runs My House.

    And I LOVE Her with all My Heart - the best Friend I have EVER had!!!!
