I am new to Spoiled Maltese but wanted to join since I now have one. I came upon the site when looking up "Albino Maltese". I think my Maggie is one. She fits all the descriptions. I have only had her two weeks. I'm wondering if her being "Albino" is going to cause her any health problems as I have been reading. Should I address it with my vet and the breeder I got her from?!

Welcome to SM!!! Congratulations on Maggie, I can't wait to see pictures of your fluff. I'm kind of curious as to why you wanted an albino maltese?

Talk to your vet. Why do you think she's albino? Sometimes maltese are just missing dark pigment but have some here and there or it's brownish instead black. We'd love to see your baby.

Would love to see pics of your baby! If she truly is albino, I would definitely address it with both your vet and the breeder, esp if the breeder didn't disclose the information before you got her. As Brit (cosy) said, some maltese just have missing/lighter pigment.

Congrats on your new baby!
