hello everyone. i'm new here on the boards i'm sooooooooooo excited and happy to have found this forum. you guys are just awesome with the information and omg! the furbabies are just to die for. i've wanted a puppy for so long and i've decided that now is the time. i'm doing my research, and getting things ready in hopes of welcoming a baby home anytime after june.
i live in northern california and would prefer to adopt from a reputable breeder in california but wont mind getting one from outta town. i've fallen in love with the puppies from bonnie palmer's angels, ta-jon, macris and crisman i also like chalet de maltese but dunno how to get in contact with them since their website is non existent. please i need all the advice i can get because i've never owned a puppy let alone a maltese. i'm a bit conflicted b/w boy or girl because i'd like to dress my baby up. i'll greatly appreciate suggestions. thanks guys...xxx

thanx rachel and welcome to you as well. davis is close by thats good. i'm having fun looking for my baby, i learn something new everyday. starting out i knew i wanted a maltese but then only yesterday i figured out the signature looks of different breeders. i like the babydoll face. so i'm just taking my time and trying to learn fast because i want to adopt by july latest. i can hardly wait :biggrin:

Welcome Mandy ! Try to go to the shows. Get to talk to the ownerw/handlers/breeders...look at great quality dogs. In the mean time shop for your puppy stuff. The shows have many vendors and lots of the top grooming products..... including combs. brushes, shampoos, conditioners, etc plus crates and beds and harnesses, clothes and BLING!

You should also consider a young rescue.read thru our rescue section and find out what pups are available. They have very reasonably priced Maltese in California rescues.

You will have a fun time. Stacy will let you know when the shows are ! Bring a lawn chair to the outdoor shows and sit with the Maltese lovers ringside. Its a fun time and usually free or a nominal parking fee or entry fee. In FL where I live its one or the other but very inexpensive and a great day out ( if you love dogs)

And read read read this site. Be prepared to have a bunch of "stuff" for your new fluffybaby so it has a safe and comfy transition. Learn all you can about good foods and potty training too.......

And most of all WELCOME TO SM !

Good luck in your search!! Chalet has retired and is not breeding any longer.
Go to the show and meet the breeders there. Pat Keene is a great breeder. You have several wonderful breeders in California.
