Default Still considering a 3rd...what do think about her?

So, I still haven't given up the idea of adding a 3rd to our family. Unfortunately, the other girl who was almost 2 years old I was considering, I decided my home and lifestyle was most likely not the best for her. She has a more timid, shy personality and one of a couple reasons the breeder stopped showing her. Loud noise, strange people, etc seemed to stress her out. Since I like to take mine everywhere, I felt in the end I made the best decision for her. She needs a more quiet home and someone that may not take their dog everywhere. I'm sure she is going to make someone else very happy.

I'm actively looking a came across this little girl and have not decided yet for she is in S. Carolina so it's not that I can go check her out in person tomorrow. She will be 14 weeks on the 17th, just under 2lbs and I've talked to the breeder twice and so far I really like the breeder and her. She is AKC does have multiple champions in both bloodlines, not that that matters as I'm not looking to show, but is helpful for health, genetic and temperament reasons. I know she is heading towards the puppy uglies and still has some growing to do, but is it normal for her to be this short and long? Also her muzzle looks a little long. I think I'm just use to Carolina being a little more leggy and a very short muzzle and super tiny. I know it's not all about the looks, and there are more important things to consider than just looks but some of the looking close to breed standard matters to me. What do you's think?

awww, she's adorable ! do you have pics of her mother and father ? South Carolina is where Lynda lives and where she got Jewel, Prince, and Lady. her breeder Lori usually always has puppies available too , so you may want to check to see what Lori has too before you make a decision..

also, the breeder that I got Ellie from has a couple adorable long coat puppies available. she's in Missouri though ...

I love her colouring, but I don't think she will be particularly typey as an adult. Her muzzle will get longer, she is pet quality. I think she will look much prettier when her coat comes in, but she won't have the head shape you are looking for.

I agree with Stella all the way around. Her coloring is gorgeous. Her muzzle will def get longer as she gets older. I prefer a more typey look too, and I don't think she's "typey" but I still think she will grow up to be a beautiful little girl. I would say if you're not set on her, then keep looking. I'd also look into Elaina's suggestions. I also have a Facebook friend who's girl is expecting. I can pm you her info. Her chi's are stunning!

I think she is beautiful and would be a lovely addition to your family!
When I was picking out my babies there was just something inside me that screamed 'YES!' ....or... 'that's not the one'
if I were you I would go and visit if its not too far and make your decision that way.
Although make sure you have a look around as there may be others available that is more suited to your choices.
If I was you I would 100% be enquiring with the breeder of Lynda's chis as prince, lady and Jewel are all stunning and that way you know your going to get a beauty!

I hope you go and visit her and she is the one for you because she looks amazing

Thanks for your help and input. I may check out the couple leads you's all suggested. Sometimes I just need to hear from other people what I already suspected and just couldn't admit it to myself and looking at puppies just makes my head go out the window sometimes, as their all cute. I think I'm going to keep looking though.

Have you all had that " I have to have them feelings" when you got/picked out a new dog/puppy? I've only ever had that with two of mine and especially when I saw Carolina's picture I just had that I can't live without her feeling and she's all I could think about for a couple days . So, I'm afraid I'm also searching for that and may not find it.

when I was looking for a puppy before I got Ellie , I had considered so many puppies before finalizing things with Ellies breeder. ( I had Zorana, Christie, and Lynda helping me. ) I came close to getting this other puppy. I even got sent a contract but things fell thru and I got back in touch with the Breeder I got Ellie from and when I got back in touch with her... it just seemed like things were meant to be and Ellie Mae was going to be my puppy and I was so happy .

I agree with the comments above that this is a pet quality puppy who is super-cute. I think you'll know your puppy when you see her. I spent so long looking for Chad, I visited breeders, rang breeders, looked on Websites and then finally saw Chad and was like " oh, there's my puppy." Take your time and you'll find her.
