None of those pups will be like the 2nd photo IMO

Responsible breeders choose by temperament and home life - putting a pup where he will succeed is most important, color is secondary...

If this is correct, that you are looking for a service dog, 4 weeks is FAR FAR too young to be choosing. The temperament, personalities and nerves aren't even visible at this age.

I feel very strongly about this and I do not care how "reputable" or well known the breeder is or what the lines are
but you can not and should not and should not be allowed to choose a pup at 2 weeks or 4 weeks.

that in my opinion is puppy farming. -

the pups are a marketable commodity.

there is nothing that you can discern , other than colour , at 4 weeks when the pups have not
even entered their social phase.

My recollection from that thread is that they wanted a dog that was like a service dog.

If Jax is correct in saying "You're previous posts are looking for a service dog? Did I misunderstand that? If so, there is a ton more to consider than color.


then that is all the reason NOT to choose a candidate at 4 weeks of age
and certainly not chose a dog based upon colour.

I would say the same thing to the poster who also wanted a service dog ,
for therapy , and was adamant on a black and tan and specifically from
American show lines .

Big gamble . You look for the aptitude . The nerve . The connection and
biddability to the handler.

Therapy dog really needs a better definition . there are too many self-declared
"service dogs" --

:Looks like I will be opening a thread - when I have a moment.
