I purchased my little female Maltese puppy 3 weeks ago from a top show breeder. Both parents were champions. I had previously purchased my beloved little Sugar from her almost 15 years ago, but she passed away in April. She was the perfect dog in every way - beauty, temperament, spirit. I contacted the same breeder just to see when and if she would have any puppies available and she had one - 4 months old - which I decided to take immediately as this Covid time seems like a very lonely and difficult time to be without a dear little puppy companion. However, this new puppy is wild, headstrong, and super-active, and now has completely tan ears and some lighter tan spots down her back and tail. She has a lot of eye stain. I wanted a sweet, gentle, loving princess and now I have a ragamuffin. She's a very smart, vital dog, with a silky coat, lovely body (about 4 pounds), and cute face, just not right for me. What should I do? Do you think the tan will go away? What about the eyestain? Is it related to teething? She's really adorable and everybody likes her but I am not sure we are a good match. If I could find the right family for her, I would be happy. Any advice?
