Poodle, Miniature Question

Would a female or a male poodle have a better temperment? I'm just not sure.

I've always had female poodles. It's kinda like a guy once told me about his dog (which by the way was a Boston Terrier) said "males dogs whiz too much". I know it all goes back to their "marking their territory" and even my female does it "OUTSIDE", but I somehow feel a male dog would do it inside. Although, my mothers dog is male (a wire haired Dauschaund) and he doesn't mark his territory inside, then again...the only other dog that ever goes in there is my poodle, and she doesn't mark in the house either. Somehow, I have the feeling, if another dog came into the house and "marked", then a male dog would feel compelled to leave a marking of his own. I'm not sure, if neutering makes a difference or not.

I believe it really depends on the individual dog. I had female poodles all my life until Reilly came into my life. I was under the impression that male dogs weren't as loving and close as female dogs but it couldn't have been more wrong with Reilly. He protected me, comforted me, stayed by my side and did things to make me laugh when I was sad. He learned how to signal me when he sensed a flare in my illness. He was my best friend. While I have two females as well and love them with all my heart.. nothing could replace Reilly. We lost him on Dec 8th of this year due to congestive heart failure and I feel like there is a piece of my heart that died with him. My suggestion is to spend a little time with the litter of puppies and let your heart tell you which one is best for you...not what sex the dog is.
