If we get a female dog will she keep Cody close to home? If she's spayed would she attract him as a female at all? We're trying to decide about getting a male or female for Cody's buddy. Cody stays right by the house but we're concerned that he'll roam in search of females when he gets older. Most of the time he's in the house. We live in the woods as you know - no fence possible. Buddy is still nowhere to be found. I'm afraid he's gone for good. I won't adopt a dog again - it's a puppy or nothing now. What do you think about a female? Oh - Cody is not neutered.
