Default Pedigree.......genes

How much does it influence your puppy? I just bought a pup that had the same grandfather or my recently passed dog Cutter. Rebell being only 11 weeks old is the spitting image of Cutter, yesterday I took him tom my sister's home where he met his 2 1/2 year old cousins for the first time and although being younger and out weighted by 30-40 lbs. he completely dominated them, they'd put him down but he just came right back at them. Cutter was an alpha male and SchH I'm wondering if Rebell could be the same.

I've seen your other threads - sorry about your loss. The dog your talking about is in literally thousands and thousands of pedigrees. Ursus is in one of my dog's pedigree too.

Pedigrees do have a great deal of influence on a dog's outcome, but every dog is different and there are a lot of dogs in a pedigree. Not just that one.

I think there are some dogs in their line that are more prominent, my male looks very much like and has a similar temperament to his great grandfather on dam side.

I think hes being an 11 week old puppy. They get to come right back and get away with it. The most dominant bitch I ever had would get steamrolled by puppies all the time. Never happened with another dog. Puppies have different rules what you're seeing now doesn't have much to do with being anything other than a puppy
