Re: Puppy Evaluation
I have to admit that I can't pick pups, not young ones anyway. Say 6-12 weeks. Of course I'll notice a limp tail or some such (after all, I'm not blind) but pick the best one out of a litter? No way! As I said above, I can eliminate the really bad ones but pick the best of the good ones? Nope, not me. That's why I always try to pick two, hoping that one of them will work out. If I wanted a male, if I could afford i, I'd buy all the dog pups in the litter. I think that I know a little bit about bloodlines but individual pups just stump me. If I know and trust the breeder, I just let them pick, otherwise I hope that I have a friend near the breeder who can pick a pup for me. Or two as I said above! :-) Harry
T Jack Robinson had a system to pick pups that I had never seen. He said to just hand me a pup which he never looked at. We went though the litter twice and said let me feel number three pup again and said that's the one I want. He said just feel the electricity in that puppy you better bet he will run.
