After losing our beloved 6 year old Maltese dog Charlie last summer to kidney failure, my husband and I were extremely cautious about selecting another Maltese breeder. My husband found Barb's Storybook Maltese website and began communicating with her. We found Barb extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the breed and their unique needs. To make a long story short, we adopted Ruby Jane (she is gorgeous, highly intelligent, sassy, and most importantly healthy) from Barb and my husband and I are crazy about her! And what's even better, Barb is ALWAYS available to answer a question or offer advice when we need guidance. For us, her expertise is invaluable. Highly recommend Storybook Maltese!!
