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?

Both teeth shots are the smaller puppy.

I agree my dog ember was smaller than sister now she's bigger.

But also; the smaller has little to no visible
White. Which I like I'm not a fan of white socks. But my ember was unique and despite her overbite she's loved by a lot.

I just want to make sure the bite (which is left and right side of smaller puppy Look normal)

An over-bite at this age might be fine, and clear itself up as the pup grows, an under bite would be concerning.

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!

I ended up smaller guy, just because his personality throughout the day. His bite looks like good scissor bite I believe as seen in my first post. So hopefully he'll be good .)
