I have gotten all 8 of mine from breeders (some I would not deal with again). I send an e-mail telling why I looking what dogs I have and do havea, and my work schedule and it is single household. I have gotten replies with in 3 to 5 days, and usually pick up the dogs in a couple of weeks, all but 2 of mine where over 8 months. You may want to give her a little more info. Although, I feel is rude not to at least reply one way or the other and just ask for more information, if that is her problemWell, I haven't said anything yet, so I don't know what that apprehension is based upon. I haven't told her anything about myself yet. I have never been able to reach her.
All I've done so far, was inquire about her dogs and asked what her procedure is for getting a puppy. She told me and gave me a link to look at dogs that she's bred, then that was it. Weird!
She's on the AKC Marketplace site and doesn't respond there either.
I wonder if that could be part of the issue. Reputable breeders are not business people; at least they are not in the business of breeding. They're not doing it to make money. However, that cannot be said of all the AKC marketplace breeders. I've always been advised to steer clear of that area of the site if one wants a responsibly bred puppy or dog.For whatever reason, it seems like Poodle breeders are a lot less responsive to inquiries. If you don't wanna give me a dog, or even consider me, even though you don't know anything about me, at least tell me. Don't leave me hanging. Sometimes, I think I would rather get a less than ideal puppy from a breeder, who at least, is willing to respond, than drive myself crazy with breeders who have social issues or are just bad business people.
