|Baillif||Yup the highest drive Labrador I've ever had was a super lazy puppy at that age. Enjoy the quiet. Your puppy storm might be coming.|

If your puppy is healthy otherwise then I wouldn't worry about him being calm. Some dogs are late bloomers, some are calmer then others. I had one puppy like that once who would be sitting in the corner and chewing on things quietly. She didn't know how to catch a ball, and ignored toys. Let me tell you, after about 7 month this dog turned into an exercise machine and would fetch, run, swim, tug until complete exhaustion (mine, not hers). When she was a pup I coudl literally throw a ball to her and it would bounce off her head and she didn't care, but down the road she became absolutely obsessed with the tennis balls. Just enjoy your puppy and teach him how to play.
Also, young puppies don't bark right away. It's always so fun to see when they make their first 'big boy or girl' bark and get surprised by the sound of it

Extreamly calm puppy
I picked my GSD up from the breeder on Tuesday 10/08/2013. He is about 20 weeks old. Ever since I got him home he has been very calm. Inside the house he does roam around and try to get into things. But he is not "balls to the wall" crazy like I suspected with a puppy. He will chase a ball if in the right mood but does not always go after it. Sometimes he finds a shade spot and will not move. He's very calm. He will play but not very playful. I have taken him to the vet and he has no intestinal parasites. He does have some discharge coming from his eye that I'm now putting medicine in and he has one testical that has not yet dropped and most likely wont drop. He will be getting fixed soon. My worry is that he's to calm. He dosen't even bark at anything. Am I worrying for nothing? Please help.
