Not sure if I should continue with this thread but it has raised some valid and useful points.
Most puppy buyers don't know that their first email to a breeder needs to be a detailed resume , I dont believe it should be have to either.
I'm not singling MAC out in this , I know many breeders with the same stance.
I think its quite fair that a prospective buyer only sends a short inquire type email to begin with.
Simple things such as do you have any pups availible and asking the price of pups etc is quite reasonable and I dont get why breeders find these emails so rude/wrong/whatever.
I do think that the last minute bit in this particular email was a tad off putting but apart from that i really did see nothing wrong with it.
I think that if the breeder answers these emails with politeness asking simple questions such as knowledge of the breed,fencing,family etc and the buyer then continues with one liners,or becomes rude,or shows they are not suitable etc then by all means they are obviously not in the running for a pup.
It doesn't take much to send that one politely return email in my opinion.
And using the old adage of 'but we breeders go through this time and time again' is just a cop out in all honesty.
You are a breeder.
You are looking for a suitable home for your pups.
Therefor every email enquiring about your pups deserves a polite answer.
