Lola is 1 and 1/2 years old and has been asking for a baby brother. We think that now would be a good time to get her one, but we are not sure how to go about it. We are looking into Yorkshire Terriers but every breeder we have looked up seems to be shady. Does anyone have any advise on how to go about finding a reputable breeder who will allow us to meet with them and the puppy parents and allow us to make an informed decision? We are located in the Chicago suburbs. Any advice about breeders or other breeds that would be good with a Maltese would be very welcomed. I have allergies so I am looking for a less allergenic breed and would need to be able to meet with the puppy first to make sure I am able to tolerate him/her. Thanks in advance for your suggestions. This is an exciting time, but already it is a bit discouraging finding nothing but puppymills and backyard breeders!
