LarMor Maltese has a little boy & girl available soon. They're 9 weeks old and she anticipates they'll weigh 5#s but said it's kinda hard to tell at this age. Anyway, contact her at larmormaltese.com.

Thanks, I never heard of this breeder, but glad to learn something. I'll go check out the website.

Tanner's Mom, first I would want to know the Mom and Dad's pedigree. What gene's are they caring? Genetics play a big part in problems that can cause these pups and new owners a life time of heart ache.
Where did the parents come from, I see nothing. I see nothing that says they show their dogs. Am I missing something?
From the web site I would not buy a dog from them.

Not a fancy website, but LarMor dogs are shown quite regularly here in the Carolinas.

I agree, the website needs some more info! Current show pics, etc. This is a good lesson about 'not judging a breeder by their website.' I agree with Marsha, if I wasn't familiar with this breeder, I would think hmmm. But I know that isn't the case!

Here is a link to some of their pedigrees, on the maltese data base.

Hi Marti,

I am curious how you heard about the dogs as the information you posted is not listed on that website.

Year ago I had a lovely pup out of one of her studs...
Jackie, do you mean you held? LOL, I was trying to figure out what you meant when you said you had a pup out of one of her studs. :HistericalSmiley:

Stacy, this is very true. This website tells nothing about her successes with producing show dogs or the nice lines she has worked with.

Even her "about me" page doesn't seem to reflect much about her breeding values. But there are several show breeders in the Carolinas who have worked with her and have some nice dogs from her. I have met them at shows.

Here is a page with pedigree and pictures of a dog she bred:
Pedigree: Lar Mor's Sundance of CE
He just finished.

Here is another: Pedigree: Lar Mor's Paper Image
He is also a finished Champion.

Here is another breeder/owner/handler who has these dogs from LarMor in their program:
Our Champions

At any rate, if she had these dogs of her breeding listed on her own website it would make a much different impression. The point I am making with these links is that websites are just one resource in looking for a breeder and good websites can hide a LOT of flaws; bad websites or non-existent ones can hide potential treasures.

There are a lot of good breeder's I know that do not have web sites. Most are in the older generation. They don't base who they are on a web site but by what they produce and have out in the ring.
Loranine has been around a long time. That is why it is always a good idea to go out and actually look at show statistics. Go back a few years too.
Don't base what you see on the surface of a web site.

Wow, the first impression makes a huge difference. My mistake and I apologize to LarMor. Coming onto their site for the first time I would not know of their success and that they were a good breeder. I would have passed them by.

Your comment just adds to my feeling that people need to get to know a breeder and the dogs before deciding who is good, bad or ugly.

Good point, Tina. And beyond looking at show statistics on the internet, more people should actually go out and meet the breeders, their dogs and their puppies. There are very good breeders out there who do not have websites. But they and/or their dogs can be found at dog shows.

I agree 100%!!! In my search for a puppy I encountered many "slick" web sites that said all the right things but didn't turn out to be a place I wanted to get a puppy from. I also spoke to several wonderful breeders that didn't have a web site at all.

It often surprises me here when so many people jump in with a buy/don't buy judgement based solely on a web site. I think we need to be more careful about sticking to the "first hand information only" guideline.

Buy, don't buy!!! You bet Puppymom. If a web site says nothing but they have puppies you better stay clear. There was NO info on her site...I have never heard of her and red flags went up.
I know lots of great breeders without web sites. This breeder I do not know of and like I said....beware of "no info" just selling pups.
How many new people know how to find out if a breeder is a reputable show breeder?
Puppymom, my intentions are only good and in the interest of new buyers. We foster rescues and see many sick and Breed for Greed leftovers.
I am working with a new buyer right now that has a very sick pup from a bad breeder.
I will continue to question threads about Breeders and hope to educate others. I am not jumping to conclusion just bring facts (no info on the site) to the forefront.

I wasn't referring to your post (I had not even read it) I was speaking in general terms about the number of times I see comments made about breeders based only on the content of their web site.

The more that anyone has to offer the better chance of exposing good and bad breeders. The content of their web sight should say it all....good Breeder...bad Breeder.

So true. You should not judge a breeder by their website. Go out to the shows, visit their home and see how things are before you pass judgment.

If a breeder has a website and is reputable they are going to state (and add photos) of their accomplishments. I realize some don't have websites but if they do, that's what they do. :) So, buyer beware of just sites that sell pups with little to no info of the breeder's show history.

I am sorry but I do not agree with you. First hand knowledge is far more important that what a person puts on their web site. Many people are not internet savey, or don't have the time to update or maintain websites. In my search I came across some very plain web sites which provided very little information by which to judge a breeder. Many web sites for the top breeders are not regularly maintained and are woefully out of date. As Tina also said, many good breeders doen't even have web sites.

A well maintained web site that gives all the important information is certainly helpful but I would never take it on face value, I would check to make sure the information provided is correct.

Talking to the breeder, getting references, checking those references against what the breeder says are all more important than looking at a web site. I believe that the guidelines for the "Breeder" section state we should give "first hand" information. Looking at a web site and passing judgement are not first hand information.
