One of the oldest of the European toy breeds, the Maltese has been a lap dog to royalty for centuries. This all-white dog has silky hair instead of fur, often making it more tolerable for those who are allergic. Maltese love to be pampered, cuddled and held, and typically form strong attachments. They are gentle and affectionate, and are easy to train, especially when training is started early. Maltese have a medium energy level and do well indoors or in Small Living Spaces. This breed is known to be by their owners’ sides at all times, and is sure to charm anyone they meet!
The Shih-Tzu is one of the oldest dog breeds, originating in Tibet thousands of years ago. Known as the “lion dog”, these small lap dogs were prized by royalty as household pets. Shih-Tzus are affectionate companion and family animals, known to live long, healthy lives. They prefer to be indoors and, while often docile and quiet, are also playful and spunky. They become very attached to their owners and love to be spoiled. Because of their small size (they typically weigh in at 10-15 lbs.), Shih-Tzus are well suited for most living spaces, large or small.
I was nervous buying a dog I had not met but the lady that helped me was very good. I was able to speak with the breeder. I don't know if I received everything the breeder sent with the dog because at Newark Airport her cage was already opened and there was no checklist of what I was to receive to compare so that would be an improvement in the future, (a packing list). Thank you.

Nanny Jessica delivered our beautiful baby boy on Saturday and he is a healthy little love. She was amazing to take such good care of our boy. I would recommend using this service, this puppy #3 for us from Puppy Spot.
