The contact us button is the issue, lol. It force opens apple mail, instead of just opening a separate page with her phone number and email which would be idea. I figured out how to just get her email from apple mail, and just sent her an email!

I just emailed: Wonderland, Lakewood, and GoldRox breeders! Hopefully they have some newborns or upcoming liters that I can get a good spot on the waiting list for!

Sadly none of them have replied yet. Can anyone else make suggestions on other reputable Florida breeders I can contact while I await their reply?

There is a really big circuit of dog shows going on in Florida right now. You really have to give us more than a day I am lucky if I get to all my emails every couple days.

Not at all trying to be rude at all but with family(and kids), a house, the dogs to take care of and activities with the kids and dogs.....there are only just so many hours in the day

I understand that it is hard to be patient though when you are searching for a puppy. All those breeders are good breeders and I am sure you will hear back from them.

I wasn't shrugging them off for not responding in a day, trust me! I was simply say that they haven't replied while ALSO asking if there were additional breeders I can contact while I wait. I only stated they haven't replied so people wouldn't ask if I had contacted them yet, or what their responses were .

Thank you for the reply!

Just be patient. Breeders may also have jobs outside of their hobby as breeders. Maybe they are contacting others to help you out.

Good things come to those who wait!

I found that reputable Golden breeders are a backward lot. When I was looking, I got a MUCH better response when I made phone calls as opposed to emails. Some breeders who never responded to multiple emails were right on top of it with a phone call.

Besides, every breeder is going to want to talk with you anyway to check you out, so giving them a phone call allows that to happen right up front -- an advantage for you and them.

So, try giving them a call! If there are no phone numbers on their websites, ask around here or at a dog show. Everybody knows everybody in the community.

I will look into the other ones you stated in a few minutes. Are they all 100% reputable?

Thank you!
There is a "Contact Us" button on the right side of the screen it gives you an email, if this is the same Lakewood:

Chris, you might want to find out where all these dog shows are currently going on and go attend a couple. Take a look at the various breeders' dogs that have been recommended to you. You might even be able to meet some of the breeders at these shows and let them know you will be calling to discuss getting on a waiting list. Nothing like some face time to see what dogs you might be interested in!

In addition to getting on a waiting list, I would highly recommend setting up a time when you can go visit with them and their dogs, once you narrow it down to 2-3 breeders. If they've never met you, there's a good chance you'll be skipped over by someone they have met. We drove 4.5 hours just to visit with a breeder, but that was after extensive contact by email and phone.

Wonderland (the Ganks) just had a big litter and have another on the way. They would be my first suggestion. Lakewood is excellent, and Ann Rowe (Magik Goldens) is great too.

No matter where you go, make sure BOTH parents have OFA hip, elbow, heart and eye clearances listed when you search their registered name or number on Orthopedic Foundation for Animals

If all four do not show up, then pass.

If a breeder with multiple litters a year cannot afford or be bothered with sending their clearances into OFA so they can be searched and verified by a third party, that is pretty crappy for their puppy buyers, their reputation and the breed as a whole. Don't take "I'll show you the clearances when you get here" or "you'll get the copies in your puppy booklet" as the right answer on this.
