My frustration with sites is not it’s not really updated 😔, thanks for the help though !
I never found any of the sites updated either. I would email which ever breeder your interested in. Usually if that breeder doesn’t have any fluffs, they can refer you to another show breeder who might.

Also there are rescues, AMAR American Maltese Association Rescue has people in your area. They do a great job matching dogs with people. Don't dismiss slightly older pups either. Often a show breeder will keep back a pup they think might be good for showing, but the pup doesn't work out, so they are available for adoption.

Near the Bay Area is Richelieu Maltese, a top show breeder. The owner is difficult to work with but her dogs can be stunning. There is Alexis Maltese in Sacramento... If you are willing to take a little flight, there is Hollywood Maltese in Arizona, also a top show breeder. I purchased a male from her about a year ago and he is absolutely love. It's just about an hour and half flight and you can come right back.

There is also MaltaAngel Maltese who is located "around 90 minutes outside of S.F. I have never met her, but have spoken with her in the past. When I lived in the Bay Area, I got my first Maltese from Richelieu, but didn't have a very good experience with her. There's another breeder around Fresno, but MaltaAngel has lovely dogs, and is closer and if you don't want to travel too far, is the best choice, IMHO.

Yes, Pat Keen from Richelieu can be very difficult to deal with, but the little female I purchased from her about 15 years ago (now deceased) was absolute perfection in both beauty and temperament. Small, silky, white, lovely face and structure, extremely friendly and loving. She had some serious health problems, but I don't think they were due to genetics.
