Also my breeder is a fine reputable breeder ( Diamond Maltese in Orlando) and he is not on the AMA list. Generally if people show their Maltese they are in it for the correct reasons ( not always but a general rule)
I met with Diamond Maltese. Did not have a good feeling about this breeder. Rude over phone. He brought puppy to his jewelry store. He refused to allow me to visit his home and see how puppies live. The puppy did not acknowledge me and when I went to pet him, he tried to bite me. Not socialized.
Was wondering if anyone heard or purchased from Joan Latreille from Diva Maltese. Cant find info on her anywhere except her website and she is not on american breeders list. No reviews either. She only charges 950.00 for male which raised red flag. She is in north fl outside of ocala.
