Maybe Dakota Creek will chime in I know she was one of the smaller ones and probably still it to the day, she is 60 lbs. Dakota Creek was the breeder. I didn't make a pick with Gauge she was the last one of two and the owner of the Sire wanted a male so I got a female...Gauge. I took my breeders word and had her flowen 1/2 way across Canada, sight unseen. Just some pics and lots of updates from Sue. She was really awesome and still is to this day! Thanks Sue and Chris.
If I knew then what I know now, even with her being the runt I would have hand picked her. With a good breeding, good back ground of dogs in the gene pool with titles, helth checks and temperment I am not sure if you could go wrong with a "great litter." All the pups form this litter have done exceptionally well from what I know and have heard.
I guess it depends on if you want male/female, super high energy vs laid back a bit (you can pick the high energy one but that is not a gaurentee). I know my female can hunt and hold her own at 60 lbs with the best of them all day long. Does she get tired on the big Canada's sure maybe but she finds a way to bring them in, it's all in their confidance level.
