Default Giving up on my breeder?

I think we are about ready to give up on our breeder unfortunately. I have asked her three times now for her address so I could send the money mail order whatever you call it and she has yet to respond any of the times.

I saw in many places on this website that she is horrible with communication but I never thought this much. I have waited a week and a bit for a response and have yet to receive anything and this is just the third time ive asked her, the first time I asked was on the 4th of November, so this seems kind of crazy to me.

What should I do? Wait a bit longer? The hedgies will be old enough to pick up around the 7th of december. I dont want to abandon the breeder, and leave her with a hedgehog extra but I also dont want, when I do get the hedgie and lets say theirs something wrong, and I email her... I mean i doubt she'll email back? I dunno....

Try phoning ...many people are not internet savvy and avoid using it.

They didn't actually leave me a number, I forgot to mention that they are still leaving kijiji.ca ads.

Hey GoldenEyes,
I had a similar issue with my breeder at the beginning. I found out that she had poor phone service, she got multiple calls daily from people that weren't serious, and that she didn't get one of my calls at all for almost a week. After she knew I was serious, our communication got easier. I don't know anything about your breeder, but I'm glad I stuck with mine through some frustration. I learned quite a bit from her! And I feel like she has a lot of experiential knowledge that will help me take care of my Persephone in the future. I would try email, maybe a text, different communication techniques are preferred by different people.Good luck! I hope it works out.

Like I said, I dont have a phone number for her, just her email and her website which doesnt give any other information about communicating with her

If I am awake I usually return all emails within 30 minutes, I hate to keep anyone waiting for anything. Try another breeder.

Im thinking about it, but its hard to find a breeder near Hull because its so close to Ottawa I guess. Anyone know any breeders in Hull or the surrounding area? I'm still going to wait a bit for Josee (my breeder) because i dont want to be a bad person and all lol

Hi,

I am brand new here and reading up on care an supplies before I actually get my hedgie.

Since i am in the same area as you are GoldenEyes, which breeder are you dealing with ? So far, I think all of the breeders I have contacted have at least replied to my first email however, since I havent chosen one for sure yet, I dont know how any follow up emails will be handled though...

Any insight or suggestions on breeders in the Montreal / Gatineau area would be appreciated ! Or ones to avoid...

Julie

I'm in contact with this breeder ---> http://passionherisson.tripod.com/

She's a good breeder, from what ive heard, just horrible at contact people but she literally JUST contacted me with the information I was asking for forever ago. I've heard most breeders arent that great in Quebec.
