Hi everyone. I am curious, how much is the "going rate" for a well bred, AKC maltese puppy? Here, on the east coast they seem to run from $1500 to $3000.

$2000 for Chanel in California.
The breeder shows them as well. When I was looking for a Maltese, even in Florida and in Michigan, the going rate was $2000 - $2500 for a female. Pricing for males is much less expensive.

My breeder (who shows) priced both males and females between $2000 and $2500 here in Ca. I get the impression that they are more popular in California...probably because they are "trendy" here.
I think you're onto something. Your maltese is so beautiful. How do you keep it's coat so white?Originally posted by saltymalty+Sep 24 2004, 10:17 AM--><!--QuoteBegin-Brittany Lot

When I got Princess, Breeder was asking for $1500. She has champion bloodlines. I think anyone who charges $2500 is sooooooo ridiculous!!!! If people stopped paying such outrageous prices then these breeders would ask for less. I personally would never pay more than $1500 and that's if the parents are both champions.
