PLEASE dont breed those babies!!!! mixed or not, maltese have alot of trouble with pregnacy,and that is really young!!! please google breeding of a maltese, maltese health, maltese only, anything maltese,it's all there just google!!!
Is this a mixed Maltese? Just curious because in both your threads you referred to it as a Maltese' Terrier' Any breed should not be bred until they are 2 years old, have been evaluated by experienced breeders as a quality specimen, have passed all health testing including OFA for patellas, eyes. etc. Breeding is not to be taken lightly, it can be heartbreaking even for the very experienced breeder, you need to realize whelping can be life or death for mom and pups if you do not know the ins and outs of it. Do your research and think carefully before proceeding once the dogs are of age, and keep in mind toy breeds can be more difficult.
i agreew/lpn!!! so i got carried away but maltese are my love and my life!!! they are very delicate(sp) babies,and great consideration should be given to their health, maltese suffer from liver shunts,white shaker, Collapsing Trachea, ect,ect. they are very little dogs,great care ,common sense,and research needs to be done???
