I've got a 9 month old working line puppy in a pet home and he's been a breeze so far. Still pretty young, but I feel I have a pretty good grasp on his temperament.
I think anyone with the basics on how to raise and train a puppy would be able to handle him. I actually found him easier than previous dogs at his age.
A well bred and balanced dog, that is eager and quick to learn, and bonds with their family should be ideal for the family situation.
