I could have sworn I posted in this thread, but maybe I read it and meant to get back to it later. Oh well...
I've fostered many Britts of both genders and have owned both as well. I currently have a young female Britt and an older male Britt. Here's my impressions...in general, the males tend to be more cuddly and focused on people, while the females tend to be more independent. The males also tend to be a bit more soft personality wise. BUT, there are exceptions...my current female is a total snuggler, she is always in my lap or curled up with me. I think some of that behavior is just the way I raised her...I wanted a snuggler, so from the day I got her at 10 weeks old, I encouraged her to sit in my lap or snuggle with me. I also asked the breeder for the puppy that wanted to be with people the most.
Both genders make excellent family pets, it just depends on what kind of personality you want in that pet. Figure out what you are looking for (a snuggler, an independent dog, adventurous, etc) and then let the breeder know which personality traits are important to you. They can look at the puppies and help you decide which might be the best fit.
When I was looking at the litter to pick out my girl, I was totally neutral about gender. My requirements were that I wanted a moderately sized Britt, a little wide in the rear (for agility), curious, one that wanted to spend time with people, and not easily frightened or too soft. The breeder was worried that the boys would all be at the top of the breed standard, based on a previous breeding, so that shifted my focus to the girls. Once I met the girls, I knew which one I was taking home, just based on how they interacted with me.
