In each case for me I was *only* willing to take a male with a normal stock coat and no disqualifying faults (as much as they can be assessed at 8 weeks). Each of my three males were/are from larger litters but based on my requirements and the type of temperament I want, it was narrowed to 2-3 choices which the breeder ultimately picked.

Good breeders want their puppies in GOOD homes, the right homes, so they will want to know as much as you can say about what you want in your dog and try to find a match. They aren't trying to force dogs on people who don't really want that dog.
