I at least try to contact her 2 times each week idk maybe less or more. I get very nervous and think something has gone wrong. And she has left me on read this time haha. I asked if the mom was ok etc. I think I might be overdoing it. I’m just nervous

I would not call weekly, let alone multiple times per week. I might send a text from time to time, but would not engage in behavior that could be considered over-bearing or difficult to deal with. I think most breeders would “ghost” a buyer if they are constantly calling.

Two times a week might be a bit much, especially if she is very busy with the puppies. I think I only texted my breeder if I hadn't heard anything for 2 weeks. Though usually I heard from her every week or so without prompting. I know many breeders do not communicate that much... just different people doing things differently.

I get where you are coming from, the excitement of a future pup, and worrying that something could happen. But the fact is you don’t have a pup until the 4 paws are on the ground. Following-up wouldn’t change any problem with the litter, but could annoy the breeder or give them the impression that you are going to be difficult to deal with in the future.

There is usually not a shortage of folks looking for a pup from a quality breeder - especially minis who have very small litters. Just be patient and positive!

You are still buying from Gulfbreeze? As long as you have received a confirmation from her that you are on her waiting list, I would just give her some space until after the puppies are born. Gulfbreeze is a show kennel with dogs needing training & grooming, buyers needing attention, and lots of other reasons to be busy. As the saying goes, this ain't her first rodeo. She knows what needs to be done.

Oh I agree if the pups are not born yet then I would not contact any further until you hear they are born. There just isn't really anything to report until then.
