We're considering a Cherub Maltese pup from Dale. I've done a lot of homework & haven't found any red flags about this breeder (just some concerns about multiple breeds, but otherwise reputable). No posts for reviews have been made on the MalteseOnly site. I'm curious to know if anyone on SM has a Malt from Cherub, has any additional info I should consider before moving forward (feel free to PM me), and if you could post a pic of your Cherub fluff if you have one.

Many thanks! I'll post pics & update when we make a final decision & bring our pup home.

I find their Home Page very "wordy". Also passing off wrong information:

Maltese are the most gentle of all the toy breeds
and no breed of dog is more intelligent or more trainable than a
little Maltese.


LOL ~ Are you kidding? "No breed of dog is more intelligent or more trainable than a little Maltese". That, alone is a pile of crap.

Cherub Maltese: Quality Maltese for pet and show

I'm not saying Maltese are NOT intelligent, however; they are not exactly on top of the Einstein list.

Dale and Jane had bred top winning Japanese Chins for a number of years. They inherited the Maltese. There are a number of breeders who had a couple breeds and do a wonderful job with all of them.

And Soda Pop is quite offended that you don't think he's Einstein, Deb LOL

My Lilly is from Cherub. I couldn't be happier! I flew down to Dallas to pick her up. He was very nice and helpful. I spent a couple hours with him while I picked out my pup. I would definitely get another pup from him. If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me.

BTW..I don't think it is right for anyone to pass judgment or offer opinions on a breeder unless they have first hand knowledge. Your perception does not equal first hand knowledge.

Yung, can you please chime in?

All of my Maltese have been smart, intelligent little dogs. Roo in particular is a bit too smart for his own good. Soda is the smartest dumbest dog I've ever had. You can train him to do complicated behaviors but he can't figure out how to follow a cookie when you throw it.

Hey, as long as they can find the puppy pad and their food I'm happy with the IQ (low that it may be). Cosy! THat does not mean poo is food!

IMO, i don't think any 'rules' were broken. Nobody was saying anything wrong about Cherub as a breeder, merely questioning the validity of a statement on the website. I have to agree with most of the comments that maltese aren't on the top of my smartest dog list, but there are always exceptions!

I personally don't have a problem with a show breeder having multiple breeds - but only if those multiple breed are well kept and are bred wisely to contribute to bettering their breed, not just being bred for puppy sales.

Stacy-

Thanks for chiming in. I have been meaning to thank you...you answered my question when I couldn't decide between a boy and a girl. Your answer opened me up to getting a girl and I couldn't be happier! Lilly is such a sweet pup. Thanks again!

You are right. Only members with firsthand knowledge of a breeder are supposed to respond.

Here are the rules pinned in this section:

We are glad to offer information here on SM that can help people purchase from a reputable breeder.
However, in order to be fair to all concerned, please abide by the following rules.

Posts not complying with these rules will be either edited or removed, at the discretion of the Admin/Mod team.

1. Please only reply if you have first-hand experience with the breeder.
2. Do not make speculative posts of what you "think" the situation "might" be.
3. Do not post anything based on what you have heard.
4. Out of courtesy to the original poster, please stay on topic.

It is recommended that those looking for a Malt research any breeder by doing searches here,
on Google, and to consider who is on or not on the AMA list, AKC list, as well as noting any violations
on each and every breeder you consider.

The only opinion, I offered, was disagreement with a statement.

Yep, Maltese are NOT the most intelligent dog. They don't even come close.

You have no idea how many Maltese have come thru my door, as a result of "disappointment" with the original owners.

I don't "sugar coat" anything.

As far as passing judgment. Nope, I don't know this breeder.

Why would you ask Yung to "chime in"? That's a bit silly.

Matilda is very smart, she knows all sorts of words, stops when I ask her if she wants her top knot out, she rembered my son had a motorcycle and gets so excited when she hears one. :wub:
B&B well she isn't the brightest, but she can make you laugh with her funny little things she does.:wub: Both girls pee on command:HistericalSmiley:what more could you ask for:HistericalSmiley:

I don't know the Martensons but have seen some of their dogs being shown and thought they were nice representations of the breed. There are some outstanding breeders in the dog world who breed more than one breed. I agree with Stacy. It's all about how the dogs are being raised and cared for. As for Maltese being the smartest and most trainable dogs, I think most dogs are smart and most are trainable. A lot depends on how they were raised as puppies and how they were trained as youngsters. I'm no Einstein but I do have intelligent and nicely trained Maltese ... those that I've raised myself and those that I've adopted through rescue. I think intelligence, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. Which one of mine is smarter ... the one who does the retrieve on command or the one who looks at me as if to say "you threw it, you go get it."? :w00t:

You could have been talking about Jazz right there. Took me about a minute to teach him to roll over but he couldn't find his own butt if his life depended on it. I go back and forth between thinking he's either a genius, or dumb as a rock. Pixie however, is too smart for her own good.

Ok, done derailing now. Back on topic!
