Default Trying to pick new male-female pups, help

Ok, got a nice photo of female I think, very hard to read foreign words and judge by photo, I have been very lucky because the lines produce good offspring, so I go alot by that. This is girl one:

no 2:

No 3 male:

I think they are just darling, have six more to choose from, sooooo hard. I need a girl and boy to come together. What do you think which girl on top.

they are beautiful pups!!! The girls are both beautiful and very similar, it's hard to tell which one is better...But I think I'm in love with the second one!
How much time do you have to choose? Can you wait untill the are a bit older, so it's easier to say which one can be better for breeding? Good luck!

They are gorgeous, I love pic one and two, and pic 3 is cute, but it must be so hard judging the dogs at this age, how can you do it?

some breeders say that the "quality" of the dog is visible during the first one/two days of life... the head of the newborn pup, before it stars to grow and change, tells a lot about how it will be in his adult days... but I really have no idea how they can evaluate so young a pup, I guess you need to be very experienced to do that

That must be really hard to do.

I am glad I don't have to make the choice. You have FAR more experience in this Shepie. I would go with your gut feel.
But I won't take MY advice either! lol

I agree. Go with your gut.

When I picked out Asher, I waited until the pups were Volhard tested at 7 weeks. The breeder did too, knowing the pups needed to be tested before assigned homes. Then I choose based on that test and the breeder's understanding of what I was looking for. There were three males, and I got the pickk of them. She said two looked good for me after the Volhard test, but Asher tested a bit better. As I had already fallen in love with him via pictures, I was glad for this and chose him. Not a mistake!!
