I've still got a good while before I get a Maltese but it's slowly getting closer. There are several US Maltese breeders that I would be interested in talking to about buying a Maltese, but I have noticed Shinemore Maltese from Korea and they have some really beautiful dogs. I was just curious if anyone has bought a dog from Shinemore...from the United States or another country, and what your experience with Shinemore was like. Did you have any problems with communication? It seems like it would be harder to make sure a breeder meets your qualifications if they are out of the country. I've heard a few good things about Shinemore but really don't know much about them...I guess I'm trying to figure out if they would be someone I'd want to look into buying from or not. I know it would be so much easier to buy from someone in the US and I will probably end up doing that...but I'm open to buying from breeders out of the country if I know they are what I want in a breeder. Thanks

I know Chris(ckim) and moshi melo both have dogs from Narae, and shanghaimomma was considering but went with Sunnydales instead. Narae is very nice but doesn't speak english very well, but she was easier to contact, and a better price than half the popular breeders on this forum. And not to mention her dogs are GORGEOUS! LOL I'm sure you can contact her for American references because I see on her website that a couple of other Americans have her dogs.

I would love to get a dog from her, don't really know how to though. I would never ship a puppy in cargo, and I'm kind of afraid of flying over an ocean to a different country alone. SO somebody else would have to transport her for me. LOL But I know I won't be wanting another maltese for a very, very long time. My Gigi is just perfect for me.

I'd be interested to know experiences with Sunnydales Maltese in Korea as well.

I was thinking language barriers might be a problem so far as communication goes...but those that have talked to Korean breeders, were you still able to discuss their breeding practices and all okay?

Hopefully shanghaimomma will see your thread, as she went to Korea and got her girl directly from the breeder. But she lives in China, not the US.

LOL I've never got into depth with her and I doubt others have either. You should just send her an email and see. :)

I have seen some very nice dogs from Shinemore, although I have not spoken with them (except on facebook, not sure if that counts, LOL) I would keep in mind also that their photography skills are amazing, so their dogs are represented on the website in a truly stunning manner (I could stare at them all day!)

I forgot to mention her amazing photography! She does enhance the photos(like the saturation, color, brightness, contrast) But the photos aren't doctored up, the structure of what you see, is what you get.

I thought Christian's little Leah is from Bonnie? Am I mistaken?

I think you are correct. Isn't he the one who passed along the message for her regarding puppy price increases?

Moshi Melo's little girl Shiloh definitely is from Shinemore though. I have a friend with a Shinemore show pup and she is just the cutest thing!

ETA: nevermind! You're right Briana!

Oh for heaven's sake! I forgot he had little Bella. Why don't we see more pics of her, eh, Christian? Oh, wait. I forgot that
Sophia has to take all the pics. :LOL:

I'm from Germany and also member in a german maltese forum. There is a member that has bought from Shinemore two puppies two weeks ago.
She has posted many photos of them and they look adorable!

Unfortunately I didn't ask her about the conversation between her and the breeder, but if you like to I can do. You can see, they sell their dogs in the whole world! Both felt fine as she picked them up at the airport. It was a flight of about 15 hours.

I personally would not do it. I am sure they have gorgeous Malts and so do U.S. breeders. When you think about it, this poor puppy has to fly 17+ hours (depends on where you live in U.S.) even in the cabin area. That's gonna be tough. Good luck in finding your perfect Malt~~~

lol Brit you know me too well! :p

Communication with the breeder should not be a problem although I did have my cousin deal with her as my cousin lives near her. Having said that I would definitely not have the dog shipped. Too much stress for the little ones for such a long flight..

Bella has such a pretty face. :wub2:

About shipping, its little less than 12 hours, from Cali. I checked the airlines but you have to cross the International Dateline, and I'm unsure how long the time difference is. When my father went to Korea(military) and he said it took about 9-10 hours, and that was almost 20 years ago, planes are faster now. You can always meet them in Cali, relax there for awhile then take a flight back home. But heck, Gigi's been on road trips 15+ hours and no problems for her! She just slept the whole time. The puppy will get over it. :)

12 hours is still a very long flight. I personally would not ship a puppy especially not that far. In Gigis' 15+ hours did she not get out, get attention, drink some water/food, etc... ??

Just because the "puppy will get over it" doesn't mean it's good for them. Why stress out a puppy that much? I would rather buy from a breeder in the US, close to me that I could communicate with and see every now and then. I guess if you are wanting a specific "look" then you might sacrifice that, but to me health, temperament and having a breeder I can visit to see my pup first are way more important than a "look". JMO.

Oh, that's the way I feel. And I could not deal with any sort of language barrier. I want to be able to easily communicate with my breeder. Having to deal with someone who has limited English would drive me crazy, frankly. Buying a puppy is stressful enough for all concerned... I just personally would not add to that stress for me or the puppy by buying from a breeder who was not in the U.S.

Oops, I forgot to mention in my first post that yes, we did stop twice for potty breaks. Food/water/ chew/even put the potty pad down on the floor when it was raining, ects were all done inside the car. I think the puppy would just sleep through it, right? And I was saying a puppy would get over it because dogs and puppies have been shipped trans-continental all the time, and I guess they were fine, so I'm guessing other puppies would be too? And I think someone is going to be with the puppy, if not, I would deff. arange for that. And if you really wanted to see the puppy first in person, I would just take a trip to Korea and get the pup myself, that's what I would probably do. Meet the breeder and pup in the airport. I'm from the DC metro area, half the people in my school doesn't speak good english(I know people from almost every country on earth), and try going over their houses! LOL I guess I'm just used to it. :)
