Please remember that in a picture you cannot see everything about a puppy. A puppy may hold its ears flat, or forward, or have chin slightly tipped so muzzle looks shorter or longer, etc. It is very easy for families to make all sorts of assumptions based on a picture, and in almost every case those assumptions about looks or personality are completely inaccurate. When these puppies are viewed in person and moving around, there are very little noticeable differences between them. All the puppies will have very similar coats and be almost the same color. Also remember that it is very important for us to assess personality and temperament when determining what sort of environment each puppy will be best suited to. Although I'm sure very family will fall in love with a certain picture or face, we ask that you remember we cannot place puppies simply based on a "feeling" a family has about a particular puppy. Thanks for understanding that we need to carefully assess temperament and work with a trainer at 7 weeks of age to figure out which puppy is best suited for your family, as well as which family is best for each puppy. Both sides of the situation need to be considered as our priority is forever homes.
