This. Exactly what he looked like when he didn't know where his ball went. Eyes vacant and tongue half drooping out.
Not my photo, and my boy was a long coat.

Yeah, he was a very friendly, energetic and healthy dog. Was a bit of a wuss when we started out, but all the socialisation helped him out a lot. He always had a very dopey expression, nothing serious or fierce like some shepherds I've seen.
But OMG, the expression he had when he could not find his ball was priceless! It always made me cry with laughter.

|blackshep||My breeder didn't choose my dog for me, but she narrowed it down to three suitable choices for me and I got to pick from those|

That's what happened with my previous dog. I was the last to pick and there was only one dog left although when I did view the litter there were other pups that I preferred but the breeder assured me that he would be good. To be honest, wasn't 100% satisfied but over some time I grew to love him. [/QUOTE]
are you 100% now lol?

|lhczth||Speaking for myself, if I felt the pup wasn't suitable then I would tell the person or let them make the choice. I want my buyers happy because that means the puppy will be happy and have a forever home.|

So what happens to the person who is last in line? Do they just get what is left? In terms of quality and fit if there are 4 puppies, and everyone wants a "high drive puppy" do the 1-3rd people get the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd highest drive and the 4th person just gets whatever?
Just curious because I was the last person to get on the litter I am on now.

|holland||I had first pick of Rorie's litter...and as I was going to pick her up the breeder decided to keep one of the females -my friend who is also a breeder told me that the breeder always gets first pick--I saw Rorie's litter mate a year later and I have always been really glad I ended up with Rorie-her sibling probably has better structure -but think Rorie has more personality!|

|lhczth||I had a person tell me it was unfair that I got first choice of the females. I told him that I breed for myself and not just to sell puppies. I have kept back a female from every litter and sometimes males until they are older.|

I'm pretty much the same , no deposits, no claims. No promises till I have the pups and they are old enough for me to get a good feel of their potential and how they should be placed.
You can come and visit as many times as you want but you can't pick one. They have to fit.
When I breed there is a reason which is not just to have a number of pups to have available. I will make my picks to hold back for the reason of that litter.
