Sphynx cat breeders are best found, at least initially, on the internet. Let's say that today (2011) searching for a breeder probably starts on the internet. A search can be made more efficient by checking the breeder's website with a critical eye as you can learn quite a lot from a website about the kind of people that you are going to deal with when you come to adopt a cat. However, I agree with a comment to this post, that a breeder does not have to have a website at all to be a good breeder. It is just that an excellent website gives a good impression. However, there is no substitute for visiting the breeding cattery and asking questions. Helmi Flick says it is a must in fact. It is common sense really.
First and foremost and more important than the way the site looks, it has to be functional. That means readability, excellent content and good navigation. Some noticeable inbound links to the site in question would indicate that people want to link to the site. This indicates a well established business.
In general it has to be said that cat breeder websites are not that great in my opinion. They tend to be a bit tasteless (sorry for that but it's my view). Some, though, do stand out.
Cat breeders could do a lot worse than had a good look at the CFA site which is obviously good but noticeably better than the next biggest cat registry TICA. Update: the CFA has been updated and it has gone wrong.

Here is my selection of Sphynx Cat Breeders from a Google search:
AAA Diamond Sphynx
Based in the USA, Pittsburg. This website is the first listed site of a cat breeder not being part of a directory site. It has a Google PageRank. It is quite a good looking clean site, readable and functional.
Based in Birkdale, QLD, Australia. Nice functional site. This site is the next ranked site on a Google search. The webmasters newsletter dried up in 2005. May not be a bad sign. But the website should be altered if the place for newsletters is not being utilised.
Furless Felines Sphynx
I liked this site for the sensible advice it gave. The breeder gave me the impression from this site that she a) new what she was doing and b) cared enough to do it. This on the face of it makes her a good breeder. It is not immediately clear where they are located. I guess it's the USA.
Australian cattery. One of the first if not the first in Australia. Site looks good. Have co-authored a book on the breed.
Located in USA. Salt Lake City. This looks like a very good breeder indeed. Recommended.
Very impressive opening page of site which loads quickly despite there being large images. Based in Southern New Mexico.
The above sites are from the first two pages of Google listing.
