A male could work. Don’t rule him out.
But, don’t rule the girls out either, because it’s easy to misunderstand
enthusiasm. I hate to keep bringing up Char, but she was a good example.
While she was pretty enthusiastic at your center, she quickly learned to
curl up in my Shell office for hours (SMART DOG!). I strongly suspect that
Lilly’s legendary calmness has been due in part to her hypothyroidism so
we probably don’t want quite that much calmness. 🙂
I realize that it isn’t practical for you to bring more than one dog, but
I wish you could. That’s partly because of my wanting to let the dog have
some choice, and concern about how well a 2yo would bond. I’d suggest that
any dog who doesn’t panic easily be considered as a candidate.
By the way, did you see the email about Lilly’s tumor? It was aggressive
bone cancer so her retirement decision is "out of her paws."

I have a male 2yo which we just took out of the police program (not
aggressive enough) and he is a potential candidate for you. I didn’t
breed him and have no papers on him, but he is 2 yo male.
Good DDR breeding, dark black with tan points and under body. Dark face.
Would you be interested in a male? I know you said female, but the ones I
have are young (1yo) and pretty enthusiastic ~ would be a while (if ever)
if they became as docile / calm as Lilly
