You have to look at your bitch.  Does she need a lot of  improvement????  
If so I would look to a dog noted for improving on what  she needs.  
 
If she has strong points that are the same as the dogs's, they will  
probably link together  and show up in the puppies.
 
attached is a list of Dominate & Recessive Structural traits that might  
help.  You can see that angulation, and gait are recessives.  That is  why the 
quality of the bitch is sooo important
