Question I can't decide between these two puppies and I get first pick!

Hello GSD folks,

I have first pick at Adel haus.

The original male, which I've named Ghost, was who my breeder selected for me because he didn't have white on his chest or his paws.

However she liked the bigger me in the picture because both testes have dropped and he's a bigger male.

However I can't decide. My original ghost is smaller but no sign of white on paws or chest and (attached) teeth appears to be a correct bite? Yes or no.

What are you guys and gals opinions?

1.) bigger male (testes dropped) but white paw and small white on chest.

2.) smaller male (have not dropped) and no white paws or chest




Smaller ghosts teeth:

What about their temperaments? White markings don't really mean much at 8 weeks, nor do both testes having dropped at 8 weeks... it's really hard to tell anything about teeth/correct bite from that picture.

Both so far are playful puppies.

I posted the pictures of the smaller ones bite as I thought that was the "worser" of the two, but compared to my current gsd major overbite these look great.

I like smaller ghost having no white on paw and chest ... But dwarfs compared to the bigger brother puppies are 7 weeks.

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.

I just took all these pictures that's how I describe it. Little ghost hops around more seems independent and exploratory. Seems like listening to small comma ds.
Big one keeps to himself but when approached plays with you also independent maybe too independent.

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

Whoops, didn't see the bite pics, sorry. Why did the breeder single these two out for you? What do they say about the bite? What are your plans for the dog?

Size means absolutely nothing right now. I had a large 8 week old who is hovering at 55 lbs at 9 months. My male was an enormous puppy as well and is 75 lbs at 4 years.

Edit: who is the "Ghost" in your signature?
