Wanna help me choose the puppy?

The breeder just sent me the pictures of the two puppies that i'm choosing from this Saturday. I know that the pictures doesn't tell much other than the fact that they both are peeing on the carpet lol

The breeder told me that DN205 is a more hyper one. I don't know if the hyper one is suitable for us or not. We are married with no kids yet. Our goal for this puppy is just to be a companion. I want him involve in sports like agility and SchH if he can though. Here is the pedigree on dam and sire:

can't tell a thing from photos!

Puppy is from 2 untitled parents, 3/4 German showlines and 1/4 working lines.....

Dice are not stacked that he will enjoy doing schutzhund - all puppies will play to some extent with the helper, and can be trained in basic ob and tracking with time and dedication, but for the long haul, I think if you wanted to do sport, you should have chosen a puppy bred for the sport...I would think this breeder is targeting companion homes....

Lucky for me my Kaos only had 1 or two carpet accidents. But pic #2 looks exactly like him when he was a puppy.....

Kaos 8/6/2003-5/18/2013 Things not what they used to be. Missing one inside of me. Deathly lost this Cant be real. Cannot stand this H*ll I feel. Emptiness is filling me. To the point of agony...

I would explain to the breeder exactly what you're looking for in your puppy and see which one he or she recommends and why. If he/she is letting you choose then it sounds like you don't have to take the recommendation but it would still be valuable information imo. Good luck and keep posting pics

We went with a left one. The other one is nipping and super hyper. We tested both of them with a few things. We hand them a toy and see how they react. We looked at how the play with each other. We shake a set of key over their head to see their reactions. We decided the hyper one is not really for us. So we pick him up, did the paper work, put a collar with his tag "Lincoln" on him and head home. His first car ride was so much better than I expected. 6 Hours drive accident free! My husband and I are both brand new pet owner so we are a little worried we won't do a good job. But he can be sure that he will be loved and taken care of. After a year of planning and researching... we finally found our puppy
