Going to meet my puppy!!!!

Although I won't know which one yet, as they are only 2.5 weeks old. I get the pick of the litter. There are 4 boys 2 girls. I will get a boy since I already have a 1.5 yr old female. I'm guessing the pups are too young to be able to tell personalities or anything like that yet. Am I right? I want to know if there's anything I should try and pay attention to that might be good to know later on when I get to pick one out/ get matched with one?

First off, congrats! :3

Now, what you should look for really depends on what you're planning to do with the dog. Is he going to be a sport prospect? Pet? SAR dog? Do you want high, medium, or low energy? How much drive are you looking for? These are all questions you should answer and discuss with your breeder/the people on this forum so you can know what to look for. And you shouldn't make your choice until the 7th week, because the pups will change a lot through then. And if you're still having doubts on which one is best for you, it'd probably be best to let the breeder choose your pup for you .

He will mostly be a companion, he will go to work with me like my other gsd does now. So medium/ high energy is good cause they get lots of exercise.
I like a high drive my current one has a decently high drive. I won't be picking him out till the 7th week. Just thought I could get a head start if I knew what to look for

you should explain to the breeder what you want and don't want in a dog..THEY should be able to suggest which one will fit into your lifestyle. Congrats on our new puppy
