Backyard breeder just trying to make money. How do I know? Because she posted, "Now I enjoy raising many different small breeds and even crossing them to see how much cuter (and improved) they can be." Not ethical at all. I suggest you read the thread that I think is a stickie on finding a reputable/ethical breeder.
I have been blessed with the sweetest most healthies baby girl, Ana, from Fran of I lovitt Maltese. Oh how she loves her babies, both puppies and her older babies.
Ana came to me potty trained and new her name. I received weekly, if not more frequently updated, either pictures, or videos.
I love Fran with all my heart, for blessing me with such a treasure. Here is one picture of Dear Sweet Ana, oh I have many :blush:
My experience with Fran, of Ilovitt Maltese, was nothing short of a miracle, and everyday, I pinch myself and feel so blessed.

Hi....I am new to this site. I have been trying to find a maltese breeder for a few weeks. Someone directed me to this forum and it seems to have a great group of Maltese lovers. I'm so happy that I found you all. I would appreciate anything that you can share. I'm just learning how to navigate through this site. I'm not sure what protocol is, however, I tried to PM a few of you and your boxes were full. I'm really looking for some current breeder specifics and information. Most of the breeders that I've found are too far away for me to travel to visit with. I'm somewhat concerned about buying a puppy without actually visiting with the breeder. I want to work with someone that I can trust. This puppy is going to be a member of our family and I really want to make sure that I get the right fit as well as a happy healthy new pup! Thanks so much to all.....I have bought from
Bonnie's Angel Maltese (Casanova)
Shinemore Maltese (Bijou)
I have had dealings with (bought and returned, paid for but did not elect to receive, travelled to but not come home with, put a deposit down and waited a long time for, promised a specific pup but pup was sold to someone else-- in no particular order...):
Feel free to PM me for information. I have personally spoken to almost every Maltese breeder under the sun.
