Question:

: I am looking at some puppies and a vet told me that most of the time the runt is usually the smartest.I would like to know if this is true.

Hi Candice,

JMO, the runt is not always the smartest pup in the litter. I've bred 3 litters, and with litter one the biggest was the smartest. Litter two, medium was the smartest. Litter three, smallest was the smartest.

Smart pups invariably are those that have confidence, are very alert and will look you directly in the eye. The only way I can describe it is that they have spunk.

Best,
Judy
