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?[/B]
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!)[/B]
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?

Leah is, Bella isn't. :)

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. :)

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. :)

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. ;)

Just to let everybody know, hundreds of show dogs travel trans-continental(half the dogs at westminster were from different countries) all the time and for many years. Breeders aquire new puppies from out-of-country breeders(different gene pools could do some good for their lines). And the large dogs HAVE TO travel in cargo also, unlike little dogs, when they can be with their human companions.
