Chill doesn't have to mean shy, I usually look for "chill" puppies. With the breeder's input, I typically pick a puppy that wants to engage with me, play with toys, chase balls, and really wants food/treats. I avoid puppies that appear hyper (chasing their tails, spinning, biting at bars of the crate or pen). I prefer a puppy that acts "cool" - real confident, energetic but not too hyper or hectic, alerts to a toy or food and wants to interact to get it, but can also settle down.
