SO Bees, here are our beautiful choices! One of these cute ladies is coming home with me soon 🙂 We were given a short list of pups that our breeder thinks will do well in our home and she asked us to pick our top three. The pups shown below were our picks! I just can’t wait to see which one she assigns to our home!!!!

I would pick the friendliest, the calmest, one that seems to connect the best with you. But based on cuteness factor alone I would pick the second one! But all of them are adorable 🙂

#1 for looks! But again you have to meet them to see who you connect with.

Our breeder picks them for us based on personality 🙂
So we don’t REALLY get a final say but she did ask which ones we would prefer!
The second one is my favorite 🙂 My husband loves the third because she has a cute tip-toe paw

I’d also vote for the second one based on that sweet face, but they’re all adorable! Assuming they’re all solid dogs – friendly, not easily scared or startled, confident, healthy etc is there a particular trait you’re looking for?
Our girl is a rescue from a BYB and you can definitely tell she doesn’t have the most solid breeding – she’s nervous around strange adults and can be quite shy (sometimes even a submissive pee-er :/ ), but she loves children and cats, is smart as can be, eager to please, and is happy both as a couch potato and an active agility dog.
Are the puppies all equally active, or calm, or confident? Does one have more or less prey drive than the others? What are your plans for them?
ETA: I saw that your breeder is doing the picking so I’m assuming you already gave her your list of most desirable traits 🙂 They all look gorgeous.

I agree!!! Based on pics, I love the 3rd one’s sweet little face. BUT which one do you seem to be drawn to? Whenever I have picked out a dog it’s like we both pick each other out!

Honestly, they are so ridiculously cute I can’t even choose. They’re all gorgeous.

Ahhhhh too cute! I actually like the third one for the same reason as your husband! Love those paws! Are you planning on showing the one you end up with? If so, would the mismatched paws be considered bad? I have no idea how that stuff works.

I would take any, theyre all so cute!
I’m drawn to #2 the most tho.

The first one is SO FLUFFY! I would LOVE to smother him with kisses!

Only three in the breed were perfectly show worthy 🙂
I am getting none of those pups but am planning on competing 🙂
This breed has a SMALL prey drive since they are herding dogs 🙂
Our breeder knows what qualities we are looking for and knows our plans for the pups! We met them a few weeks ago and they are all sweet as buttons! Each is confident so it made the litter hard to narrow down! Some in this breed are VERY gentle and others are a little flamboyant so we wanted one of the mid range personalities for the breed 🙂 This was a great litter!
We have good taste 😉 The one I wanted the most was the breeders choice 🙁
Darn my trained eye! She was just perfectly framed and her proportions/markings were wonderful…Sadly the breeder gets top pick and I won’t get the little cutie!
I got to meet all the pups in person but the one dog I was SUPER drawn to was the breeders choice. These pups all meet our quality requirments 🙂
