As to edog site to search for a breeder, caution! Hollybelle is one of the breeders listed and in case you don't know the story they are a puppymill. See www.hollybellemaltese.com for the whole sorry story.

It is too easy to put up a good front and a good story on a web site and fool the purchasers into thinking you are a legitimate, caring breeder, as evidenced by Hollybelle. Some people got good dogs from Hollybelle but most of her dogs in her breeding program were mistreated, neglected and abused. Many of the pups purchased died, were chronically ill or deformed.

Caution is the watchword in looking for a breeder. This breed is becoming so popular that their lives are being devalued in favor of making money for the breeder. Abundance can bring the price down but will increase the mistreatment of the breed and of the animals because of the money to be madel in doing volume breeding.
