    Default puppy question?

    My brothers bitch had her first litter yesterday. Both dam and sire have great pedigree's (I have posted them before). Anyway, I am getting pick of the litter when they are ready.

    My question is
    1. Bitch is only 48lbs. She only had 4 pups 2 male / 1 female/ 1 dead at birth. Does this seem normal?

    2. When should I pick up the pup? 49 days?

    3. Male or female? I have 2 female GSP's and have always had females, but was thinking male for a change. Plan on doing FT's. Maybe some HT's, but want to focus on FT.

    4. Was curious what others do to pick a pup. Always open to ideas.

    Cheers,

    well if you want a girl it will be easy.
    If you want a boy take the one on the right.
