   My Maltese puppies do not go to new homes until they are 12 weeks old . Our  Maltese are.small 4-6 pounds when mature, well socialized and make loving pets. which are not placed as breeding stock.  Email or call for Adoption fees  .  Females   by advance reservation  inquiry invited. 

I am a Breeder of Merit with the American Kennel Club  all my Maltese are  registered with the American Kennel Club only.

 We prefer to place our Maltese in loving   homes  as companions where  they will not be left alone all day.   Maltese   are  around 1.5 to 2.5 pounds at 12 weeks and are  not recommended for children under the age of 8.

 All of my puppies are out of my AKC Show Champions judged to be of the best quality at AKC Dog Shows events. Weighting 4.5 to 6.6 pounds. with outstanding personalities.

Confused by Internet breeders with puppies for sale - 

Reputable  Maltese breeders  put the long term care of each puppies first  when selecting their new homes. They do not  offer to air cargo 8 week old puppies next day for the sale. 
AKC Champion parentage is a commitment by the breeder for improving each generation thru Dog Show competition. One champion  way back in a puppies pedigree  can not guarantee it's quality .  

Reputable breeders are responsible for every puppy they breed and will accept them back any time in their lives if not wanted for any reason.

Reputable breeders  use  registrations  from the American Kennel Club only.  and will abide by a code of  breeding ethics.   There is a difference puppies are a lifetime investment.   Buyer beware .
