I’m so sorry this is so late. I did lots of one on one today then one last group play. I gave them baths and did pictures. So I could evaluate one on one. Then we did one last play session tonight. I even ran the vacuum to see responses. I don’t have any pups being placed for therapy this litter so I didn’t do the volhard test. Instead I do my own little tests. This is what I have observed below. I also have my first round of picks done for everyone. I’m now working on pick 2 and 3. I’ll finish that tomorrow. Remember it’s ultimately your choice. But I’ll me very real and honest. The good news I don’t see much outliers. I really don’t. I don’t see anyone I’m upset worried about placing. Either way shy or way outgoing or clingy. Nothing. And I have had litters like that. I always tell the story of brown litter 4 and him screaming through the glass door while I sanitized the floor each morning because he wanted to be with me. I don’t see anyone that’s real hard headed either. Like curly was. Like Becca was. These make great moms by the way. They seem to chill at about 3 months old and are fantastic pups and then moms. As long as you stay in control and they know you are the owner/boss they are fantastic dogs. It does take a stronger owner to keep them in line so you don’t get walked on. Anyway I’ve rambled enough. Hear it goes in no particular order.
Pink. She is the investigator. She has no problem seeking things out and exploring. She played with Becca most of the evening and was not scared of her size or rough play.
Wine. She is the snuggle girl. She likes to be held and made over. Loved and cuddled.
Blue. He had a toy every time I seen him. He was playing with something and stayed occupied.
Red. She is a little reserved. Not the first to run to stuff. Stayed back and watched what was going on. She liked to sit at my office chair and watch the others.
Orange. He was always playing with someone. Sometimes grey sometimes the girls but always with someone. So I consider him social.
Grey. He is just gentle. He plays with the larger pups mostly but never rough considering his size. He is very gentle and easy going. Laid back.
Yellow. She preferred to follow me. Not always under my feet but not far from me. If I moved she did too. She is quiet.
Tan. He likes to play with the other little ones. Him and purple and white all look alike and seem to group together. I consider him social and he gets along with the others well.
Brown. Another explorer. He was up on the window for awhile. He had no problem investigating and checking everything out.
Green. He is probably the alpha. I know his size you wouldn’t think this. But the alpha is the protector that everyone respects. He was snuggling wine when she was cold earlier today. He is not scared to stand up to the bigger ones but he does this to protect his honor. To show he is in charge. He takes care of all his members.
White. She is playful and a little shy with the vacuum. She preferred to go back in the crate when I turned it on. She wants to be with me the most. She is content being a lap dog and loved.
Purple. She actually chased the vacuum. Loved it. Not scared of any noises. She is playful and most pictures you will see white following her lead.
