I had one breeder respond to me 3 months after I sent in the email. And then it was clear they hadn't even read my email at all. Uh no thanks (besides I had Mia by then). I like that Mia's breeder answers emails usually pretty quickly. My initial contact was answered the next day. Other contacts I wait maybe a day or two. Once a week but that was odd. She's been very helpful sending me links to trainers when I lived not too far away and also replying to all my updates and answering questions about health concerns I've had. Summer's breeder is not very technologically savvy so i just call.
