Advice when buying a Maltese Terrier
Please read the following advice before buying a new pet, you should also read our article on avoiding scams :
NEVER make the decision to get a dog or puppy on a whim. A dog is a lifetime commitment and a lot of thought should go in to it before making the decision.
NEVER buy a new dog or puppy without being able to visit it at its home. If someone wants to meet you and makes excuses why you cant go to their home, just walk away and report it to us.

NEVER send money to someone for a pet using Western Union or Money Gram, as your money cannot be traced once sent.
Ask to see the pedigree papers and ensure the breeder's name is on the certificate.
Recently some advertisers are advertising their pets as Pedigrees, but when people have gone to buy the pet, the seller has made excuses and said they will post on the pedigree papers. NEVER pay for a KC registered dog or Pedigree Club dog if they dont have the certificates as you may never receive them.
