|I haven't found any significant difference, to be honest. The difference to us, I think, is how WE bond with them when they're adults rescued versus puppies raised.
Maya was six when I met and bonded with her, and seven when I took her home. She was attached to my hip and I absolutely adored that dog. Sure, she wasn't Charlie, she wasn't my heart dog. But NO DOG can ever replace her either. I rescued Charlie at eight months and we have a stronger bond, but I fully believe that has more to do with our personalities than how old they were.
That said... Ria was got as a puppy, and isn't BONDED to me much at all. She likes me, she listens to me, but she's my fiance's Velcro Attachment through and through.
Having experienced both puppies and adult dogs, both with bonding and training, I actually prefer the older rescues... I find they're easier, bol.
