I realize there is probably no set answer, but am just wondering the average of a pup when a breeder will decide if it's a future show/breeding prospect. There are 3 boys in the litter & I will be getting one of them. The breeder has asked me to consider not neutering if the best pup for me is a good choice for future breeding. (she likes that I plan on some performance titles). I'm still trying to decide if I would want to go that route. She said IF she's going to keep one (assuming I don't want to keep mine intact) it will probably take her a while longer to choose one. I'm just wondering at what age she might know? 3 months? 6 months? I sure don't want to wait a second longer than necessary to bring the new little guy home. But I also don't want to agree to future breeding just to get the puppy.
