Once you find a few breeders who consistently do what you're looking for (e.g., In my case, I want one that follows the COE and occasionally makes an older puppy available.), then I recommend following their facebook pages. I find Facebook pages tend to be more frequently updated and if the breeder has a puppy (young or older) become available at the last minute it's often mentioned on there rather than the website. Additionally, it gives you the opportunity to interact with the breeder in a friendly (often happy) setting which builds rapport so the next time the breeder has a litter and sees your application, they can remember, "Oh, that's that nice person with whom I interact on FB." Every little advantage can help when you're looking for a well-bred puppy.
