Hi! I was wondering if anyone could share where they got their Maltese or from whom specifically they got their Maltese. Also, any recommendations (good or bad), experiences, advice, etc. --would be great if you could share those.
Thanks!!!!!

I got Lexi from Kathy White (White's Ashwood Kennel) in Garden Grove, IA. I have since found out she is technically a puppymill, so I would NOT recommend her.

For my 2nd puppy I'm trying to go off the AMA list. Right now I'm waiting on some litters from Cheryl Dawn Shoemaker (Babydoll Maltese), Cheryl Filson(Cher-Chien Maltese), and Bobbie Dodd. All of the litters are due any day now.

the breeder was Lloyd Buck but the brokers name was Irma. and...eventhough the dogs are cute---it turned out to be a puppymill.

I got kodie from a lady near my house... she breeds her own dogs and sells the pups to people she knows. She isnt listed on any breeder lists because she just does it privately and sells to people she is familar with. She takes good care of her babies but... I do not recommend a puppy from her unless you get tests ran on you pup first. She does not do any blood work/tests on her maltese! I was also given kodie at 8 weeks old.

My first Maltese turned out to be a Maltese Bichon mix and came from a small local puppy mill before I knew better.

Mikey and Jonathan are from a breeder whom I would not recommend. Very nice people, but I would run from those lines due to the liver problems they produce.

My last pup was from a reputable breeder and I was very, very pleased with them. I would purchase from them again.

My mutt is from the local SPCA. One cat was rescued from a vet hospital and the other is from the local Animal Welfare League.

My Lady is a rescue. She originally came from a pet shop/puppy mill and has multiple health issues including diabetes and epilepsy. I would obviously not recommend getting a puppy from a pet shop or puppy mill. As it was in Lady's case, she was perfectly healthy for nearly 5 years until all theses genetic "time bombs" started going off.

As far as adopting a rescue, I would recommend it 100%. I haven't had a puppy or kitten in nearly 25 years. My two Siamese cats are also rescues. The love and devotion you get back from an animal who has been discarded or abused as my Siamese Sarah was can't compare with puppy or kitten love in my opinion! It is so rewarding to help these special souls work through their issues and baggage.
