Kathryn Posted October 12, 2017 Share Posted October 12, 2017 Oban was a singleton puppy -- his mother's only precious child! I never thought much about this, but I was talking to a local breeder a few days ago, and she mentioned that singleton puppies have different personalities because they were raised without littermates. I have had four cairns over my life, and each had his or her own quirks, but they have also shared the typical cairn confidence and enthusiasm. They were each also uniquely different. I don't know whether or not a couple of these dogs were singletons as we know nothing of their origins (rescue dogs). But I guess I never thought Oban was much different from our other cairns in behavior. He is a bit of a mama's boy but I attribute that to acquiring him the day after I retired. He spends much of each day with me. Any thoughts? Are singletons different? How so? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
