A friend of mine did that with her Standard Poodle. She already had a dog from her chosen breeder, so an established relationship, she paid for the puppy and promised that she would take the puppy, whatever happened. Picked her out at 3 days old, and all the other pups in the litter were docked. She got a good dog.
So what happens when the puppy picked shortly after birth turns out to be one that wouldn't be a good fit for that particular home? Or turns out to be the one that the breeder would have wanted for themselves (after all, isn't that the entire purpose of breeding a litter, rather than simply to sell puppies)? That doesn't sound like something a responsible breeder would do, at all.
