|Gretchen||Molly is the 2nd female I've had since being an adult. My husband is not very involved with our dogs, although he loves them, so its been me and my daughter(s) and the dogs. We try to be feminine and generally like a girly vibe and our female dogs fit right in. Plus both dogs have been very maternal and nice to our cats. We also have less worries about dog to dog aggression on our walks. The owners of male dogs I meet, especially the larger breed ones tell me other male dogs try to challenge them and are usually relieved to find a Molly is a female.|

I strongly prefer females as foster dogs, because Pongu hates other males so it's much less hassle to introduce a female foster.
My next personal dog will be a male, though. In the past there's been no real reason for this -- Dog Mob is all-male just by happenstance, it wasn't anything I deliberately planned -- but I can keep an intact male and I cannot keep an intact female, and Imaginary Future Puppy is meant to have a chance at being a breeding prospect, so a boy it'll be.
In terms of personality I haven't noticed any consistent difference between genders. Each dog is its own individual.

|Daisy&Lucky's Mom||Ive had both.I dont know how much is gender specific roles and how much is the individual dog. Daisy while not the most obedient never wanted us out of her sight. Lucky is a shadow but Daisy was more attuned to me. Chevy and Thunder are like Lucky.Thunder personality is if you go to the basement I got to go to ,are you going to work ? Ok Ill go. Lucky is very affectionate ,as was Daisy, Thunder and Chevy. Actually Dodger who was a big guy was a lap dog with the ladies. Lucky is a lady's man ,he prefers being with women. Daisy preferred males and the girls prefer women . I think that alot of that is how they were raised.|
