Default Possible New Puppy!

Ok, here's the puppy pictures! The pups are almost 6 weeks old (but these are earlier pictures), and one of them might be mine! The breeder is still assessing them but so far he thinks that the sable male with the still floppy ears might be the right one for me. Says he's very handler orientated and quite cuddly, a very good all rounder type of dog. Slightly lower drives than the other boys but still plenty of energy and still bites on the toys, shaking his head.

What do you guys think? Can you tell much from photos anyway, besides how they look?

He's not quite as dark as Apsel was when I brought him home at 8 weeks, but that boy will darken up too between now and then. I think the best thing you see from the pics is how focused he is on the camera, he looks inquisitive and attentive.

Just my 2 cents.. while puppies looks adorable with their floppy ear some prefer their GSD to have erect ear when they grown. It is one of the so many thing makes the GSD look amazing.

I don't really mind how dark or light he's going to be. I like both the light and dark sables, so either way it's all good.

In regards to ears, I wouldn't be worried about it yet. My last boy's ears didn't stick up until he was 12 weeks old. I am amazed that this litter of pups have gone up so early.

Oh I wasn't saying dark or light is better, but just noting he appears to be to have chosen the Dark Side

Apsel's ears were up at 8, and back down for a month when he started teething. You're right to not worry about floppy ears at this point.

My Sinister had a floppy ear when I got him at 11 weeks old. It wasn't floppy for long!

I swear I heard something along the lines of it could take up to 6 or 7 months for them to stand.
