I visited the Divine site and it recommended 2 breeders that have available pups. I've already been in contact w/ Rhapsody so I decided to call the other, Ballet Blanc. I checked out their site and she has beautiful maltese!! Her pups go to a 5 wk. puppy school before going home @ 12 wks and she sends them home w/ this nice goodie basket among the other stuff. Well I decided to call and chat with her, shes nice, I asked my questions then she said she didn't have any males at this time that will for sure be going to pet homes; she still had to wait a little longer to evaluate them. She told me that the female she has now is $5000. (as pet only) and her male pet puppies are $3-4000!I thought $2-2500. was the most for a male pup from a show breeder but wow!! Anyway, I found out they are located in NY (Carmel) so it wouldn't of worked anyway.
