Here is the breed report on Yucca. If you don't read German, you'll have to get someone to translate it for you. Google Translate is NOT sufficient, but might give you an idea.
You can look at Yucca's offspring on PDB and see what she produced photo, title, and breed report-wise. You will get the best information from looking at your puppy's parents and any full siblings of your puppy if the litter your puppy from is a repeat breeding.
That said, Yucca is on working-dog, and there is a link to a breeder that has a short description of her on their website (under the Legends tab). Not going to post the actual links out of respect for PDB and because I don't know anything about the breeder.
Every puppy in any given litter will be different. In a good breeding, most will be similar in many ways, but there are always differences, and sometimes one or two puppies in a litter will be very different. It's both genetics and environment. Every puppy is an individual. Breeders can make educated guesses about what a particular breeding will produce and good ones will usually be mostly right about the general characteristics of a given litter, especially with good genes and good pairings. The breeder of your litter should be able to provide specifics about the lineages, pairings, litter, your particular puppy, and how your puppy compared with other puppies in the litter re activity, temperament, size, etc.-wise.
☺️ Most importantly, enjoy your puppy! ☺️

Others say it doesn't work, and they don't do it.
I'm of the opinion that it does work, but care must be taken not to fix (strengthen) a bad characteristic while working on strengthening good characteristics. And line breeding isn't always the right thing to do. Depends on what one is trying to accomplish and the available bitches and studs.
My GSD is Line 4 and Line 2 with a little Line 5. I can see distinguishing characteristics of Lines 2 and 4 strongly represented in her, and one specific trait of Line 5. I considered studs for her based on having desirable matching characteristics that I want to maintain, and desirable characteristics to improve some less good things to get better puppies (improve the breed).
Unfortunately, circumstances have prevented breeding, and it may now be too late.
