Okay, I did forget to mention when this thread started awhile back,
that mine are Rescues, with the exception of Frankie.

It has been in question, as to where LBB came from.

Joplin has been arguing this for years. She said, "He's the dog from he**"

:HistericalSmiley::HistericalSmiley:

I said, "Jops, knock it off, quit pickin' on your brother, he's a rescue,
just like you are". She said, "Oh ya, well rescue him out of the toilet we just shoved him, and shut the lid". :HistericalSmiley:

I got my first Maltese from a BYB before I knew better, and my second from a pet store, which I bought because she was in a pen with much bigger dogs crawling all over her --I could tell she was sick even though the owner said it was simply allergies. It was pneumonia, and we spent thousands and a lengthy hospital stay to get her better, but she was SO worth it! She was the sweetest, most lively and loving little girl-- she truly had the quintessential charming Maltese personality. She crossed the rainbow bridge last year after a bout with pancreatitis. Dolly's Rainbow Residency at RainbowsBridge.com

We still have our little Tiffany, who is ten, and definitely my hubby's dog! (picture to come)

Here is Dolly:


I'm adopting a little girl that I will pick up early December from Dar Lynn's Maltese in Florida.

(Anyone know why my pictures aren't posting?)

Luna Bella came to me from Gumwood in Texas....Vicky Welch. PM for particular info if you would like. Luna is a lovely little thing, however, I do wish I had been a member here during the 'finding process'

Gracie is from Mary Harrigan of Brookside Maltese (Mary H on this forum.) I couldn't have asked for a better breeder as a first time Maltese owner! Gracie is smart, independent, loving, extremely healthy, and has great knees! She is a littermate of Lynda's Gigi and a half sister to Lynda's Chachi.

And if you notice Gracie in your avatar pic, you will see the family trait of the beautiful elongated stretch of her neck. She's sitting up regal even when laying down. :wub:

I've been doing some research for about a month now. At first i wanted to buy my dog from a pet store but after reading post after post i've been trying to find a breeder. I'm located in NY but willing to travel a bit. I found a few breeders deep in PA (about 500 miles away). i don't want to make the trip all the way there to be disappointed and not come home with a new family member. If anyone can give me some information/contacts/emails of breeders around the tri-state area that would be great.

I'm actually looking to buy a puppy for my gf. she lives in an apartment so the dog would have to be small and playful lol. Also I'm a full-time college student which means i have a budget. Any info would be helpful thanks again hope to welcome a new memeber to the family soon.

There aren't that many good breeders around the NY area. I did go to PA.I was willing to drive to see my pup before I got him. I'm thinking a reputable breeder's price may be steep for a college student. Why don't you really keep an eye out for a rescue -- there are many Maltese who have become homeless because of the economy. You can look at Metropolitan Maltese - better yet contact them since many aren't listed on website. I also was impressed by this rescue who some SM members got their Malts from and they're in the NY area. Shih Tzus & Furbabies, Shih Tzu & Furbaby Rescue is dedicated to rescue, rehabilitaton and rehoming of toy breed dogs
Look at that little girl Buttons on the first page. They will transport their dogs to the tri-state area.
It would be better for you to save a Maltese' life then give money to a backyard breeder or pet store/puppy mill. Please consider it. It will get you points with your GF too. You need to do this together since a pup is a forever commitment.
