DH and I are looking at getting a dog in the near future; I did some research, and decided that a golden retriever is the best breed for us.<br><br>
Further web searches came up with the Golden Retriever club (<a href="http:" target="_blank">www.grc.de)</a>, which had a list of puppies, when they were born, and when they'd be available, along with contact info for the breeders.<br><br>
I looked at the websites of the 3 breeders closest to where we live, and picked the one where I'd like to get the puppy. Now I want to email that particular breeder, and confirm that there really are puppies available, etc.<br><br>
This is my email thus far:<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Hello; my name is Jamie Lastname. I saw from <a href="http://www.grc.de" target="_blank">www.grc.de</a> that you might have puppies available in the near future. My husband and I are looking for a Golden Retriever as a family pet. I looked at your website, and your dogs are absolutely beautiful.<br><br>
We are Americans, and I am using an online translator to translate this email from English to German, so I apologize for any errors.<br><br>
Please let me know if we might be able to meet with you about possibly purchasing one of your puppies. If none are available, please disregard this email.</td>

Does this sound alright? (Beyond being very awkward and stilted, I'm very shy, esp. when there's a language barrier.) Is there any other info I should include?

maybe they want to know if you ever had a dog before and if you have experience in bringing up a puppy (of this breed of dogs).
