Just curious, is there a reason you can't make the time to pick up your own puppy? Lots of really good breeders in FL. FWIW I drove from TX to FL (14 hrs one way) to get my last puppy and I'm almost 70 and would do it again in a heartbeat.
I would assume from the breeders perspective if you don't have time to pick up your pup or meet the breeder how much time will you have for their puppy?
I could be wrong but believe laws have been put in place (or at least trying to get this law passed) for places like online sold pups, so they can no longer sell pups sight unseen. There is a reason this is not a good idea. Good breeders care about their pups, they want to know who is going to be taking care of their pups, how they are going to be raised and where they live. Even rescues won't ship puppies.
If you feel you are being forced to resort to purchase a pet store pup or online or puppy mill purchase... that's your choice to make and not the fault of the breeders. No one is forcing you to do this, personal decision. If you don't want a puppy mill dog put in the effort.
