I like original ghost because of his pigment and tenacity but he's not as big. Also because of the bite pictures I can't tell if his bite is okay
My male was the largest of the litter at 5-8 weeks. He was very big. He is now two years old and weighs 80 pounds, 25" tall at the withers. It's not really something you can predict.
When it comes down to choosing a pup, you need to evaluate their personalities/temperament. Find out which one suits you more. I think a puppy that approaches you confidently and happily would be a good choice. I would stay away from a timid/cautious pup.

Just based on the info given, I'd chose the better bite and dropped testes over the white. I don't like white on the feet at all, but on that puppy it looks like it may fade. Actually just based on the info posted, the bite would be my main reason.
The small one with the bite picture if the BITE looks okay approached me with his three legged brother we approached. Very verbal ... Bigger one seemed more timid. Ember current dog which is outgoing and a very human like personality which I like reminded me of little one, but she has a severe overbite right now. So if the teeth picture I posted looks okay to you guys I think the smaller I'd better because it had no white paws and better personality. Also the bite picture does not have both testes dropped yet... But he also does not have the white paw.
But does the bite below look okay?

It would be nice if you could get more information than that they're both playful. Personally, I'd want a lot more detail about the puppies personalities before making a decision.
Same here! I've heard quite a few members state that visiting with a puppy for an hour or so isn't a good measurement to their personality/ temperament. The breeder has been around the puppies since birth and knows them best. I had a choice between two puppies both had the qualities I was looking for IPO at the club level. I was new to the sport so I wanted to make sure I got the perfect dog me " me". I talked with my breeder over and over about what each pup brought to the table. She provided me a video with just those two so I could see them interact. She was extremely helpful. I went with Isen because he had good drives, but also settled in the house. The other puppy would require A LOT more exercise as he had higher prey drive. I went with Isen. My breeder's opinion on each puppy had a major impact on my final decision. If something happened and I could not do IPO, I'd still have Isen...so I wanted a dog that settled with my other two. OP I'd definitely inquire more about each puppy to learn more about their personality and see how that puppy will fit into your lifestyle. You'll have them for 10+ years : ) Both are cute though!
