Default Re: Question for past breeders and current ones.

I feel a lot of personality is born with them. Certainly handling helps but some babies are shy from day one and despite lots of handling they continue to be more shy than those who are confident and outgoing from day one. Same with cuddlers and adventurers. Personality is there from birth and handling them and introducing them to lots of different situations helps, but not completely.
