If anyone in that area wants a Maltese puppy, I sugggest they contact one of the many top show breeders in that area. There are quite a few.
To the OP: Have you had her knees or liver either one checked? Have you ever shown her? Does she have a good quality coat? Are you willing to provide a health guarantee and have the puppies' livers test before they go to their new homes? It's estimated that as many as 80% of all Maltese are born with a liver shunt or MVD. Are you prepared to deal with a C-section and fragile puppies? Are you willing to keep them with you for at least 12 weeks, maybe longer? Maltese puppies are very susceptable to hypoglycemia and if you send one home too early with an inexperienced owner there's a good chance it will die.
Barbara, are you considering breeding your girl, or are you getting her spayed? In your first post you said you were looking for a friend for her, and a male would be a good choice. As has already been mentioned, there are a lot of tests to give all breeding dogs, and Maltese are probably way up on the scale to test because of their serious inherant genetic problems.(not exclusively so though). I hope that if you are considering breeding your girl that you have all the required testing done, on both parents, and have a mentor to help you through.
