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'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?

Thanks everyone. I don't really want this to become a discussion on shipping puppies...I'm just curious if Shinemore, and also Sunnydale, are reputable breeders to consider buying from. I do like their look and the look of the Maltese I get is extremely important to me, as is health, temperment and buying from a reputable breeder. If I'm waiting this long to buy a puppy and spending the money to buy from a reputable breeder, I want to get what I want in a Maltese. I've seen plenty of puppies from US breeders that have the look I like as well.

Shiloh (moshi melo's girl) is from shinemore and she is gorgeous. Narae is easy to communicate with and she is very patient in responding to all questions. I'm definitely getting my next malt from her[/B]
Thanks Cat. :biggrin: Shiloh says she's in LOVE with Remy!!

Narae's English isn't perfect, but she is still pretty easy to communicate with and she is very responsive; I can usually get a hold of her when I want to, and she's halfway around the world! For the more extensive questions, I made a long list of questions for my Korean friend to ask Narae. My friend translated back to me, and she answered everything to a T. Shiloh got food and water refilled on her 9 hr flight, it was shorter due to tailwinds. Shiloh is a bit on the timid side at first (this along with her size was a reason she wasn't keeping her for show), but once she's comfortable, she loves people. I think her timidness keeps her from exploring and getting into too much trouble, so I don't really mind it much. :p I couldn't be more happier with her look or her personality. Narae and I still keep in touch, she emails me asking how Shiloh is doing and I send her picture updates. I wouldn't hesitate to get my second malt from her.

As for pedigree, Shiloh's sire is a Champion for KKF (Korean Kennel Federation) and of mostly Korean and Japanese lines. Her dam has Korean, Japanese and American lines...including Marcris' Indecent Proposal which is from the beloved Risque Business! :wub: The other American lines in her are Malta Angel, Sunncrest, Chrisman, Tajon and Pashes. I too am for a broad gene pool.

Thanks for your response. Shiloh is beautiful. 9 hours is a long flight for a puppy...but good to know that two of you have had good experiences with having a puppy shipped from Korea. When I get closer to getting a maltese, I would defitely get more details and discuss shipping. I don't know enough about the shipping procedure right now to know whether or not it's what I'd want to do or not. I was really just curious if these two Korean breeders were someone to possibly consider in the future

Michele, I just want to reiterate so you and everybody else that is considering a pup will know that YES, Shinemore and other Asian breeders have amazing photography skills, and they do enhance photos(I've asked them myself), which may be misleading to some, bit you still can't fake structure. So when buying from them, don't act like you don't know that. Lol And I only know of one other breeder in the states that do enhance photos also(Very, very famous breeder, but I'm not saying any names on this public forum). Also, those of you considering a puppy, I know ALOT of breeders(in the US, and other countries) who say that their lines stain very little, and of course is going to show you puppy pictures without stains(duh, who want to see a dirty-faced puppy picture? Cute, but It would draw me away from buying it) Lol All puppies will have some staining in their lives, I personally, wouldn't believe it. So expect stains.

Okay, I'm done now. Had to get that off my chest. :)[/B]
So by enhance, you mean lighting, adjusting how white the dog looks and taking any staining away? Just to clarify that you don't mean enhancing feature such as making eyes bigger or muzzles shorter, etc (think little girl pageant photos where they make them look like a different child LOL)?

So..if staining is covered up, has anyone on this forum bought a Shinemore puppy that had bad staining? The photos I've seen of Bijou, Shiloh, and Mrs10 (sp?)'s girl didn't appear to have any staining to me in the photos I've seen of them (sorry if I've left anyone out that has a shinemore dog). I know puppies will usually get a little staining and I'd be okay with slight staining but I would not be okay with severe staining if that makes sense.

Enhance meaning color, saturation, brightness, making a dog seem whiter, putting a gleam in it's eyes, YES. Kind of like pageant pictures, only they add in a lot more in those pictures. LOL

You can always pm the ladies, they like to keep things private. ;)
