Shinemore Maltese

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 agree that the Korean Malts I've seen (mostly pics) are like perfect little dolls. What I'm curious about is the actual pedigrees of the ones we are seeing at US shows. Do they have different bloodlines than what we are seeing here these days, or are they mostly from our lines? We would think automatically that they are different, but I don't know anything about their pedigrees. I know many of our American champions are now abroad, and of course there is sperm being shipped.

I'm all for a broad gene pool vs a narrow one. :)

About the shipping, I could not even think of a baby being alone with the danger of low blood sugar for that long. Not even half that long. I also worry about psychological concerns. If there was human care all along the way, fine.
