I think he is a cutie. I personally love the coloring, he is a light brown with sabling, it looks that way in the picture. Now keep in mind some pups change drastically in color, a lot of sables get lighter as stated above. I would go more on the personality than looks, but IMO he's a real looker. Smart choice on no taking the other pup, even though he is cute a lifetime of problems could really break your bank, not to mention your heart.
