I'd think your best bet with this would be to either find a breeder that has a lot of experience placing pups and looking at temperament, or finding an older rescue that's know to be on the submissive side, but not overly shy or fearful. My husky is pretty similar to what you're describing, so we're in the same boat! Regardless of whether you go with a breeder or rescue, you're going to want to find someone that's REALLY going to be able to help you out with temperament. I mean, you can definitely work through issues if you introduce the dogs slowly and well, but finding a more easy-going dog in the first place is going to make it much easier and start you off on the best possible foot.
