It depends. Many breeders have multiple dogs and it's easier for them to be kenneled outside, the dogs have more room than a crate inside.
I would not rule out someone whose dogs were kenneled instead of inside because of that.
But you are setting yourself up for a spur if the moment purchase by setting a timeline on purchase. I would find a breeder you like, and then wait for an available puppy. Not look for a breeder that happens to have one ready in you set timeline. Not that it CANT work out, but I would not go that route.
