Hello everyone, I just joined tonight. I live in Charleston, SC and I am lucky enough to have my baby girl, Gidget who is 2 1/2 now. I am searching for the perfect companion/playmate for her. Although it is going to be difficult not to purchase a puppy, it may be better for me to get one a few months older since I am working. I also dont have a fortune to fork out. Any ideas? B)

Hello! I too am new to SM and the Maltese world in general. I adopted my boy through petfinder.com. This was the best thing for me and Bentley. He is between 1.5 to 2 years old, potty trained, and just as sweet as can be. Whenever people ask me about him I tell them to go to petfinder. Hope this helps in some way.

Yes! look into www.petfinder.com in your area - there are many in need of a home, or look at Northcentral Maltese Rescue's site for their adoptable Fluffs ready for their furever home.

Good luck in your search! :)

Petfinder is a wonderful resource for rescue pups.

If you might consider a retiree you may also look into breeders in your area. Jocra Maltese (Jocra stands for Joe and Craig) is right there in Charleston. Out in Columbia are Judith Gieger of Premiere Maltese and Loretta Gitto of Tiffanee Maltese.

LarMor Maltese is another breeder in SC. I believe she's near Hilton Head.

:Welcome 4: Welcome to you and Gidget. We'd love to see pictures of her. Hope you find a fun sister or brother. There are some amazing rescues coming available because of the economy. Good luck and hope you get a lot of info here on everything Maltese.

Any luck on finding your new girl? I'm also looking but looking for our next male. These ladies have been AMAZING!!! I just wanted to also send my thanks to everyone! I have heard back from all of the breeders that you have recommended. I feel comfortable we have met the "mom" of our next malti baby! Now, just can't wait to meet our baby!
