Avoid the rambunctious puppy?

There are three 8 month old pups for us to choose from (Std. Schnazuers). One is rambunctious, one is laidback, and one is a middle ground between the two.

Since we originally wanted an adult, would we be smartest to pick the most laidback of the pups? If it matters, the pup whose composition we like best is the "middle ground" pup.

Does a puppy's behaviour/energy level serve as an indication of how long it'll remain puppy-ish and how easy/hard it'll be to train?

By 8 months, you get a pretty good idea of a dog's temperament. So choose what you like best!

They all seemed so hyper! I guess compared to our 5 year old dog, any puppy will seem hyper There was one that was a little more of a busy body and the groomer did make a point of telling us that she'd need more attention.
