    DefaultWhich would you choose !UPDATED!

    I posted some pictures a few days ago of the 4 puppies that I will be choosing from tomorrow. Our breeder sent me some updates on the personalities of the pups which I have summarized. Many of you chose the puppy with the red and black collar based on the photos...which one would you choose now?

    Red Collar – very energetic, one of the smaller females, she doesn’t take any crap from the other pups, she’s vocal

    Black & Red Collar – very similar to Red collar, a little dominant but not as much as Red collar

    Leopard Collar – little more laid back, quiet, bigger then the two Red collar pups

    Pink & Green Collar – the biggest female, not aggressive, quiet


    Here's the link to the pictures if you didn't see them.

    UPDATE:
    Our puppy visit was today and we chose the third puppy on the list - LEOPARD COLLAR! I am so excited and cannot wait to bring her home! After an afternoon of playing with the litter, we finally made our decision and could not be happier! Now we just have to wait another 3 weeks before we can pick her up! YAY!

    My best puppy test is to find the few with the middle energy; so your bottom 2. Then I'd toss some keys on the ground next to them. I would not chose a nervous dog or highly sensitive dog. I'd pick the one that quickly investigated the keys. A little startle reaction is fine, but I would want a dog that is confident enough to quickly recover. A little dominance is good, a little submissive is good; any that are one extreme or another I wouldn't pick. But I have little kids so I have to be more careful. Oh, and I'd just be picking for a pet, not showing or anything.

    I would be completely, 100% clear about my home situation, folks there, schedule, kids, mealtimes, worktimes, atmosphere, general condition, ability to tend to a dog, likes, dislikes, travel routines, preferences for feeding/crating/exercising, etc.

    And then let the breeder pick.

    I agree, I would have the breeder pick, just let them know what kind of dog you're hoping to get to fit your lifestyle.

    At first I thought the laid back or quiet one would be less trouble training, but I see she's (all females?) going into a family of established cockers and cats, so I would take one of the more dominant, aggressive ones so she will be able to fend for herself until she's bigger than all the others. They're all cute.
