I'd like to get my girlfriend a puppy for her birthday.

Do not. I repeat, do NOT get your girlfriend a surprise puppy with nothing to go on than "which is the cutest."
Dogs are a big responsibility and live 10-15 years on average. Is your girlfriend ready for the commitment? Does she have the time, money, and energy to train and raise it? Will you pick a breed that isn't suited to her lifestyle?
Or will she be happy for a few weeks and then decide this dog isn't for her, and leave the poor thing homeless in a shelter.0
