I called my #1 pick (Barbara Cuttell) last night. From the 2 litters she was expecting she only has 1 male. I guess the first preg didn't take.

Anyway I'm going to start my search over. If anyone knows of any good breeders in the midwest (Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, Kansas, Minnesota, or Nebraska) could you please PM me their contact info? I'm looking for a female puppy. Thanks!

Here is the list of breeders I have now:
- Tammy Hauptman (Tamar's Maltese)
- Joy Sweet
- Lucille M. Dillion (Cherubwim's Maltese)
- Cheryl Dawn Shoemaker (Babydoll Maltese) *has a litter due end of May
- Cherie Eno (Reflections Maltese) *has a long waiting list
- Darlene Wilkinson (Gayla Maltese)
- Sandy Bingham-Porter (Seabreeze Maltese) *not going to have any puppies in the next few months
- Marti Klabunde (Cedarwood) *passing on too many red flags
- Cheryl Filson (Cher-Chien Maltese) *passing on too many red flags

Aww! Sorry to hear about that!!! I don't know of any breeders in the midwest, but if I hear anything good I'll be sure to let you know!

I'm sorry to hear that. Is the male spoken for or wouldn't you consider a male?

You'll have to speak to Dhondia, but I believe she said somewhere Tammy wasn't planning any puppies until next year.

I know getting a puppy from a really good breeder can take a long time. They just don't have many litters and there is a waiting list for the good ones.

Of course, I still think you'd make a wonderful rescue mom! Hint, hint! Or how about adopting a retiree from one of the breeders? Do you have your heart set on a puppy?

I kind of have my heart set on another female puppy. I'm really not in a big hurry. I just hate the waiting.
If I don't find a puppy by Sept/Oct I will probably wait until next spring to get one due to winter weather.

I found a breeder in Joliet, IL that is expecting a litter at the end of the month. Her name is Bobbie Dodd. Does anyone know anything about her? Good or bad?

She is going to call and let me know if she has any females after the puppies are born. If she does I'll ask then for the pedigree.

IMO I would completely research anyone from that area. Joliet does have some nicer area's but it also has alot of bad ones. I just have had alot of bad expierences w/dogs in Joliet, granted they weren't malts. We got alot of pitbulls and bait dogs out of there into rescue.

Does anyone have the number for Darlene Wilkinson (Gayla Maltese)? The number I have is no longer working. I tried to find another number on the internet but couldn't.

I met Bobbie Dodd a few weeks ago. She is an older lady and has been breeding maltese for at least 35 years. I have not seen her house or her setup....but she is friends with my mentor and I have seen one of the girls that she is putting in the ring this summer. I will be at my mentor's house Friday night getting one of her girls ready for a show...I will ask her for the scoop on Bobbie and get back to you.

If Sandy Bingham-Porter (Seabreeze Maltese) has a puppy available for you, I would jump on it. I just absolutely adore her Maltese. They are so beautiful and I have heard very good things about her. I believe she breeds on a very limited basis.

Lexi's Mom,

I have to tell you that we got our Ruby from Cheryl Filson and she is a wonderful person and breeder. I have nothing but positive things to say about her. I read your previous post about her and how you didn't like the fact that she wouldn't email you the information you requested. She is a very busy person (she works outside of the home, her breeding doesn't pay the mortgage) and wants to talk to you so she can get to know you. She doesn't just give anyone one of her babies. You can't get to know someone by email. The first time we spoke on the phone it was an hour long converstation. She wanted to know if we had ever had dogs before, if we had children/going to have children, if we had ever surrendered an animal,...you get the picture. The first several days after we brought Ruby home she wanted me to call her to let her know how was she eating, sleeping, adjusting. She also has answered every email or phone call I've had with questions. I think people are quick to judge her after finding out she was once associated with Jennifer Siliski, I think we should look at who she associates herself with now....some of the BEST breeders and handlers around. Ruby's parents are both Chrisman Maltese. Her main handler is Darryl Martin who has been showing/breeding Maltese her entire life, her mother was a big deal in the dog world. So please don't be so quick to judge. People do get duped, I know I've been before and you learn from your mistakes and move on. This breed means everything to her. I hope that you would reconsider her! I don't know how to PM but if you want to know anything else about her, I'll do my best to answer any questions you might have. Geez, sorry this is so long!!

Ruby's mom Martha

She said she doesn't have any litters planned for the next few months. If I'm still looking in a few months I will check back in with her.

A friend told me of a pup available today. Chrisman has a seven month old female listed on Puppyfind for $3000. I went under a search for Pennsylvania to see it, and also found Josymer has an eight month old girl listed for $1500 on there also. Both of these are very reputable, so you might want to check on these pups. If you haven't used this place, just click on the button for location search after you get the Maltese ads.

Mimi2,

I want to thank you for telling me that I was too quick to judge her. I called her last night and had a long conversation with her. She has a litter due at the end of the month. It is from 2 of her champions. I'm supposed to call her back in a few weeks to see if she has any females.
