Doberman Pinscher Puppy or Pit Bull Puppy?
The difference between a puppy and a pup is not so much in their age but rather in how they are raised. A puppy is one born after the gestation period (about four months) of a female dog. These puppies have all the physical characteristics of their mother, such as her coat color, size, and even some other features like her voice. They are usually very affectionate towards their mother and will lick her face when she smiles at them.
A pup is one born before the gestation period (about three months). Pups are completely independent from their mothers. Their development depends entirely on their own.
Some pups grow up to become adult dogs while others remain puppies forever. All pups have a certain temperament which varies greatly depending on the breed of dog and its environment. For example, a dachshund may be extremely friendly and playful with strangers, whereas a boxer might be aggressive and possess a mean streak.
Puppies are generally smaller than adult dogs, but they tend to weigh less too. The average weight of a puppy is around eight pounds while that of an adult dog ranges from twenty to thirty pounds. The most common breeds of puppies include Chihuahuas, German Shepherds, English Bulldogs and Labrador Retrievers.
There is a wide selection of dog breeds with puppies readily available throughout the world. While some breeds make better pets than others, it ultimately comes down to your preferences as to which type of dog you should choose. If you are looking for a guard dog, then you may want to choose a German Shepherd or Rottweiler.
If you have kids and want a fairly good-natured dog, then you should consider a Collie, Beagle or Labrador Retriever.
While most puppies are playful and friendly, some can be quite rambunctious and mischievous. It ultimately comes down to the breed of dog you are considering buying. If you get a puppy who seems to have a wild streak in him, do not be afraid to take an assertive approach.
Just remember that you want to socialize your dog as soon as possible so that he grows up to become a well-adjusted member of your family.
