My Dog Bartram's pups, how do you pick a puppy?
He sired some pup with a local GSP breeder. 9 total, 5 male and 4 female.
We are gonna pick a female and hope to wait 3-4 more weeks. These pups are 5 days old.
We like the patterns on the two middle ones and the top one looks to have more ticking like Bartram, but time will tell. We like the ticking. The top female is the runt and the left one is the BIG dog of the litter.
I am familiar with some of the methods to pick a pup. Like not the one who **** and bites and is the MOST responsive (can be too dominant and bullheaded) and not the one that is the most timid and people shy (could be suited only as a junk yard dog). The one on the left has a **** pattern at the tail - heehee.
So for the dog people, what would you look for other than color and patterns?
I have owned runt bird dogs before, anything wrong with them?
