When I would touch his face, paws and what not he would give me a lick or two if I was lucky but that was all. He never tried gnawing on my fingers or hands either like most pups do.

It was warm out. Here he is today while I was there I took this photo.

Rbarak The obvious answer - take both!!! But seriously, I lean towards the fluffier one, on the left - he reminds me of my long haired Shepard when he was a puppy...

First observation was the lady was holding the puppy and after about 20 seconds he started doing a howly sounding whine. He also proceeded to do this about 4 more times while I was there. Any time someone held him for more than that 20 seconds and also a few times standing on the side of the playpen. None of the other puppes (litter of 7) did these while I was there.

Secondly he seemed to have no interest in coming to me as I tried to coax him. Most of the other puppies did if they were nearby. While they were running around outside the other puppies would come to me and smell, lick or nibble on me or my sandal and he did not. He did wag his tail and seem to be happy to see one of the little kids, but other than that not much response in that area.

Lastly while playing with the others he tended to be the pup on the bottom of the playing. Also cuddled with his siblings while he slept. He was not the alpha dog for sure, but I couldn't quite tell how submissive he was either.

Seems like puppy #2 is aloof/independent, slightly assertive, calm, and respectful with you. Not a strongly submissive, dominant, or aggressive type, like the other pups.
