hi, Im new here.. I haven't got my dobie as of yet, but I am rescuing one very soon.I cant decide between male or female, and age ? I have 2 grandkids, one 7mo,one 4. Of course I plan on obed. training, and what not. I just wanted a few peoples input. I am so excited! But truly want to make the best decision. I guess age is the most importanat question here. thanks guys !!
