Default Hello. Need suggestions

Hello everyone, I'm new on here. I do not have a Maltese as of yet nor any dog for that matter I have been doing research for the last two years on the breed and a Maltese is what I really want I'm so dedicated to finding the right one. I won't be getting one for about another year and a half, due to living situations. But all that I can think about is when that day comes. I want to have everything ready and good to go, I want to get to know the breeder in which my puppy will come from. I have a question or even suggestions from everyone; Does anyone know of any great breeders in Missouri? I can't seem to find any near me. If you can help me, I would greatly appreciate it thank you so much

Welcome! I'm sure folks will have a lot of suggestions, although I would use caution with local breeders. Many on here will tell you that Missouri has a large number of puppy mills - please stay away from those.

I agree with Hope. You should begin your search with the American Maltese Association's breeder list:

American Maltese Association Breeder Referral

I would not recommend the American Kennel Club list. It's mostly backyard breeders and in Missouri, probably puppy mills. The AKC is just a registry and there is no screening of breeders who advertise there.

I would also really recommend you start with reading all the stickied threads in our Breeder section to help you find a reputable breeder.
