If you had a previous dog, think hard about what characteristics you liked in that dog and what you didn't like. Share those things with the breeder, and ask them which dog might be more likely to become what you want. Either dog will become a home protector, its in their genes.
I learned the hard way that my independent, mouthy, high energy puppy is not great with kids and has been a disappointment to them for the last 3 months. Im sure he will mature into a dog they will enjoy, but he's nothing like they expected right now, and that's because I was not honest with myself when picking the puppy.
When I look at your videos, one dog is tolerant of being touched and rubbed, the other one wants to bite and paw at your hand. That biting will get way worse at home and has been a big problem for my kids and puppy. Don't let the appearance of the ears influence your decision, they all wind up the same in a few weeks.
