I think eye staining is a problem with ALL small white dogs. (their beards stain too) It is worst when they are teething, then a lot of them grow out of it. of the ones that have on-going problems, sometimes it's food, sometimes it's water supply, sometimes it's a yeast growth, and sometimes you just never know. Some lines definitely seem more prone to it than others, so if you insist on a white puppy, look at the faces of the parents to give you a clue whther they are likely to stain as adults.
That said,color is the VERY LAST reason to pick a puppy. Your priorities should be health and temperament, not necessarily in that order. Follow that with how and where the puppies are raised, followed distantly by gender if you really care (I didn't, and got a puppy quicker as a result). Only if ALL things are equal, and they almost never are, should you worry about color.
The "best"color is the color of the puppy who is the best fit for your family!
