I was going to say what Stacey did...small litters result in a higher price range. That seems pretty average to me. I am one who supports responsible breeders of finished dogs. Plus, there is no greater joy in life than having a puppy. Work? Phew...a work of love and joy.

Why don't you PM a couple of members who know a lot about Malt breeders. I would love to help with whatever knowledge I have gained over the years.

Stacey is a very dear woman who loves the breed and works only for it's betterment. I feel confident that she would offer advise on your breeder of choice. We just don't want a public conversation.

Thank you all so much! Its great to know that bile acids can be done at 16 wks, thank you for that info.

The math makes sense to me now that I have had a chance to think about it, and I think she is getting more used to the price tag, too. She was about to drop a load of cash on a puppy mill puppy, so whats a few hundred more dollars when it comes with so much more knowlede of the puppy's lines and the breeders support.

I show Dobermans, and I have had the please of rasing, training, and showing two finished Champions.

I will likely be PMing some of you in the next day or so.

Thank you again!!!

Welcome. Oh, I absolutely ADORE Dobies! I've always had big dogs, usually in the retriever group, but in recent years I've gotten too old to manage a boisterous large pup. So I got my Maltese and absolutely adore her "big dog" temperament. My Button is a little pipsqueak, but she thinks she's a big, bad Dobie, always telling the neighbors what she thinks of them!

My aunt had the biggest Dobie I've ever seen. I don't recall her exact size, but she could back up to the sofa and plop her butt down, sitting there like a human. She was a trip-- and what a sleek, gorgeous dog she was.

I thought I would update this thread with a picture of the new little addition. He is from Angie at Divine Maltese. He has a fun little temperament and is so cuddly and sweet.

Here is little Bello

I also paid $3000 for mine. Some say that is crazy but your babies are worth every penny.
The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.
