Default Can you help me choose between these two puppies?

Hi, I wanted to see if anyone could possibly share their preference between these two puppies. I am not exactly sure what to look for. The father's name is V Yego aus der neuen Hauffstraße and is Sch3 KKL1 LIFE. Below you will find pictures of both the father and mother as well as two short clips of each puppy. I wasn't exactly sure what to look for as far as facial characteristics. Also my primary motivation for the dog will be for companionship and home protection and one who will be good around kids. Thanks for the help guys. - William

It's so hard to pick from 40 second videos, did they do any temperament testing and video that? PS I think the mom is so pretty

The breeder should be able to do some tempermant testing to determine which dog would suit your needs. You may find that the pups act completely different the next time you see them. If at all possible I would meet them several times. When I choose between the 2 girls in the litter, 1 was super people friendly and the other more interested in everything else.

Both are adorable, whichever one that you get it will be the best one.

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.

What is the age of the pups in the videos?

What are the pups like when they are taken outside by itself? Does it stay next to you (or the breeder), or does it explore it's surroundings?
