I am in a debate over what gender of pup to get when it comes time to get one. So any advice would be great and feel free to ask questions that might help in answering. And to help aid here's a little about my current dog.
I do have a neutered male boxer. He does have a dominace trait at times, but it has ONLY been with adult intact males that are his size or bigger, and an occasional neutered dog (male or female) that are again his size or bigger and they have a domanit personality also.
He has never had a problem with dogs that are smaller as far as eltablishing dominance right away. 90% of the time he just gives them the literal shoulder and ignores them. My neighbor has a 25lbs spaniel/boston terrier mix that pesters him to no end and as we call it acts like a hag. He has only once put her in her place because she actually bit him in the face. And then all he did was held her down with his paw and gave her a verbal warning.
When we lived in Maryland he had a male baseji buddy and they got together every few weeks to play and even when the B would start getting snarky Reggie would just get in the play stance and woof at the B and then take off running, ending the snark fest and starting a game of chase.
I'd like to get a male, but wanted to ask what basenji owners think. I have had female dogs in the bast, mix and pure breed. And I don't dislike female dogs, but I have expereinced that they are more work and more of a pain in the rear, lol. Not that I'm against it.
