I know the logical reason why some breeders like to choose buyers their pups instead of buyers choosing their own. Although I find that to be somewhat risky. For example, when the owner got Lobo he did not come up to her or her husband but other pups did come up to them and follow them around. Lobo was the aloof puppy that the breeder gave them. Lobo shows aloof around her more than husband and shows aloof to other people. Despite, his favorite people are his owners next to them I'm Lobo's favorite. She told me that she does not feel close to Lobo but hopes to Lobo will come close to her. Doesn't listen to them really either. Even though Lobo does pay attention to his owners maybe she doesn't really feel the close bond yet. Although Lobo does obey and listen to anything I tell him to for some reason and is not even mine. Pays attention to me constantly and shows it. Lobo and I share deep bond and constantly think of him always in my dreams. Once loved all the hugging, etc not anymore which I now respect him for. Also they have a professional trainer working with them. She told me that when Lobo did not come up to her at all or her husband when they got him that should've been their first clue. So that is my logic on breeders choosing their pups somewhat. A hint or advice for future puppy buyers if you buy a pup from a breeder make sure the pup comes up to you immediately and follows every where you go and spend 10 minutes or 20 to make sure he does not walk away. If a pup does not make contact or any interactions when you walk in do NOT get that pup or aloof may be what you get for the dog's lifetime.
