Arrival Story: I researched the breed for several months and made contact with a number of breeders. Finally I chose a breeder that had a puppy that fit what I wanted in a Maltese. I fell in love with his pictures and had the breeder hold him until he was 6 months of age. Then I flew to Pittsburgh to get him. When I held him and he cuddled me, I knew I had made the right decision. We have lived happily since then.
Bio: Shadow's parents are both Champions showdogs. He is the sweetest, most loveable boy in the world to me, with most everybody else he is cautious. He is very protective of me.He is an excellent watch dog, is extremely intelligent and loving and can learn tricks almost immediately.
