I was surfing the net and came across a webstie and that pet classifieds similar to this site. I was shocked to see that some people are selling Maltese/Poodle and Maltese/Shih Tzu mixes for close to or more than $1000!!! I couldn't believe it that price for a mix breed puppy.
Isn't that how much I could expect to pay for a full breed maltese puppy?
I know this is such a random post, but I couldn't resist to get some answers.
Instead of going to a 'breeder', why not try a shelter or a pound? There are more than enough Maltese mixes to choose from, even some mixes 'breeders' never thought of! At least you'll get a pup / dog that is relatively inexpensive, already spayed, had all the shots and probably microchipped.
It is really shocking as to what some people will come up with to make a few (or a lot) of $$$$. Actually quite sad. I did check out petfinder.org and saw a lot of these homeless "designer breeds" out there.
