Puppy Personality At Day
A Dachshund puppy will, of course, be longer in body than a Doberman, but what’s intriguing is that a Poodle pup will be more social than a Pyr- enees of the same age. That’s because the Pyr was developed to bond to his flock whereas personal protection dogs and hunting breeds have been genetically manipulated to bond to humans. Whether one ascribes to the theory of evolution or the mystery of creation, no thinking person can deny that the dog is the most unique animal on this planet. The dog’s size range and aptitudes are unmatched by any mammal in the animal kingdom. Only humans have such wide-ranging physical features and talents.
