Choosing your furry companion

It’s All About the Connection, not about being a male or female

Welcome to the heartwarming world of puppy adoption! If you’re here, you’re likely considering adding a bundle of joy to your family. A common crossroad in this journey is deciding between a male or female puppy. It’s a question we encounter often, and our experience has led us to a simple truth that might just make your decision a little easier.


Before diving into the adorable details, let’s address a crucial part of responsible pet ownership: spaying and neutering. Here at Smeraglia, we require all adopted pets to undergo this procedure. Now, you might wonder, why is this important? Well, aside from the health benefits and helping to prevent overpopulation, spaying and neutering play a significant role in a puppy’s life, especially when it comes to their behavior.

Often, potential pet parents are concerned with the gender-specific traits of their future puppies. However, once a puppy is spayed or neutered, many of these gender-influenced behaviors tend to diminish. What does this mean for you? It means that the personality of your puppy is more a product of their individual experiences and upbringing rather than whether they’re male or female.

When you visit us, ready to meet your new best friend, we encourage you to focus on the unique personality of each puppy. Do they bound over with unbridled enthusiasm, or do they approach with a gentle curiosity? Are they the adventurous type, ready to explore every nook and cranny, or do they seem content to sit by your side, offering quiet companionship? These traits are the essence of what makes your future pet special.

Choosing a puppy is much like finding a new friend; it’s not about whether they are a boy or a girl. It’s about the connection that you feel, the spark that happens when they look at you with those big, soulful eyes. It’s about finding the companion that complements your lifestyle and fills your home with joy.

Whether you find yourself drawn to a playful pup with a wagging tail or a serene soul with a gentle demeanor, remember that both are capable of providing endless love and loyalty. Rest assured, with either choice, a loving and devoted companion awaits to embark on a lifetime of memories with you.

So, as you make this heartfelt decision, we’re here to support you. Let’s find the perfect match for your home – a furry friend who speaks to your heart regardless of gender.

Embrace the journey of puppy adoption with an open heart, and you’ll find that the love of a pet knows no bounds.
