Default Need a little advice

This is my first time obtaining a puppy from a breeder. I found one that I really like and I kind of have my heart set on getting a pup out of them. I took the first step in contacting the breeder (via email) asking for information about the dogs and telling a bit about myself as well (my lifestyle, what I'm looking for, etc). I got a quick response with a lot of info about the dogs and breedings. When I replied, I expressed interest and told them that once again I'm new to this whole process and not sure what it entails (as far as them finding me a suitable puppy parent) so I said if there's anything they'd like to know about me, I'd be happy to answer their questions. I haven't received a response in days. I'm curious whether I should send another email? I don't wanna appear too pushy but I do want one of their pups.

If you're comfortable sharing the breeder and the sire and dam's names you will get A LOT of helpful info.
also sharing a little bit about yourself can help some very experienced members here steer you in the right direction.

Sure, I'd contact them again. They must have thought they already had enough info. I'd also do as much online checking about them as you can. Most good breeders like to have a face to face meeting & mach a pup to your life style as much as possible.
Best of luck

Thanks guys. I emailed them again but still got no reply. It's so discouraging since I really liked this breeder and hesitated in contacting them because I was nervous they'd reject me. I guess my search continues.

I would call as well, it can't hurt and you'll know after the call if you need to continue with your search!

If you are serious about getting a puppy soon from this breeder, if I were you, I would email the breeder and put in the subject line: Want to make a deposit on puppy!. I would send it with high priority and request a read receipt. That way you will know it arrived.
