What To Expect From The Breeder After You Purchase A Puppy



Congratulations, you were approved as a parent for an Angel Baby (not everyone who applies is)! Your baby is too young to go home yet, so you place down a payment to hold him or her until the glorious day you can take her home. What can you expect now? What kind of communication will you get from me about your baby until he or she can go home with you?

I tend to over communicate so let me know the level you want. I feel that the more you know about your baby the better the bond will be between the two of you.  That is the reason I communicate as much as I do.



I take lots of pictures and send them to you weekly, usually more. I don't text though so you will need to provide an email address where I will send them. You will get to see your baby grow and her milestones as she develops.



I love to talk on the phone. I can tell you the traits of your puppy and the little antics that he/she does. I am always available to answer questions or whatever you may need.

This blog is also provided with a wealth of information on all aspects of caring for your new baby!

I am here for you, always! I want you to have joy & the best experience possible now and into the future with your Angel Baby! Don't hesitate to call on me.  :)



How was your relationship with me while you waited for your puppy to go home? What can others expect?

I look forward to your input.

  1. Once I put my deposit down for my angel baby the communication has been non stop. I really feel like Sally has become part of my forever family. She continues to give me updates every week on the progress of my baby. I have two more weeks until I get to take my puppy home and I cannot wait! I really feel like Sally puts so much love and attention to detail in all her dogs.

  2. When I first came to visit my baby, Sally was so sweet to me! I held my new baby for the first time, and I just cried! She was so beautiful! I came to visit at least once a week. Sally always made me feel very welcome! It is very easy to see right off how much she loves her dogs. I knew my new baby was taken well care of! The frequent photos were wonderful, they helped me get through to the next visit. She was always there for me by phone. Sally is definitely the best breeder I have ever met!!!
    My baby is now four months old. She is absolutely gorgeous! At her first veterinarian visit with me, the vet was shocked she was only nine weeks old because her coat was so thick and lush. She received a clean bill of health! I am so happy I have found Sally. She has been and continues to be so helpful and a great friend!

  6. Sally, there is great information on this blog! We've helped with the family's Maltese while living at home, and it's great getting more information for ourselves! Especially for two people hoping to bring home our first pup together! We would so look forward to seeing pictures and updates on our little fur baby! You love them so much already and it will be wonderful to learn a little about them before bringing them to their new, loving home!! Thank you for being so open with communication and updates, it will feel like we're there watching them grow with you!
    Hoping to bring one home soon :),

  8. Dear Sally,
    Thank you for this blog.
    I love how thorough you are with the entire process. Communication is very important to our family as well. I hope that one day we can have a chance to bring one of these super cute and gorgeous babies home to our family.

  9. You are awesome Sally! What other breeder takes so many pictures and gives such intimate details to each parent. Your availability for help or questions before and after a parent brings home their baby is so helpful and nice. It is obvious you not only breed puppies but that you love these puppies and want only the best for them in your care and long after they go to their forever home. After having had a bad experience with another breeder in the past you have no idea how comforting this for new parents.

  10. I love your process. It is really crucial now days to get as much information from a new family and equally give them as much info about the dog that they may need. I love soaking up knowledge about these little guys because they are all so precious.

  11. I love your involvement with the families. They are lucky to have you. Calls and photos of the little ones are so helpful and exciting. Can't wait to see my angel baby. Very excited.

  13. Once I put down a deposit, can you send a video of the puppy playing when a bit older? I feel your love for your little ones shows in your follow up. I can't wait.

  14. Maxandandy, yes, I send video occasionally of the puppies.

    Thanks for asking.

  15. Hi Sally,

    So far we have received 252 photos and 15 videos of our baby, and she is only 4 weeks old as of today!

    With the previous 3 breeders I purchased from, we saw only 1 maybe 2 photos of our puppy that were posted on the breeders website and they were taken just prior to us picking up the puppy. We saw nothing of our puppies growth and had no idea how their Mom's looked after the puppies during their development.

    You, however, have provided us a wonderful photo album that we will always cherish that includes photos of our babies birth, development, and interactions with her brother,, sister, and Mommy, and more! Thanks to your wonderful photos, we feel like we are right there with our baby every day experiencing her growth and development.
    Thanks again Sally, can't wait to see what you send us next!

  16. Sally, I have had the most amazing journey thus far Sally in choosing you to buy my little boy from. I can't express the elation I felt when you choose me as well. I have so appreciated our phone conversations and getting to know you and the love and nurturing you put in to ensuring the quality and health of each puppy is outstanding! I was even more impressed, if that's possible, after visiting your home and meeting my little boy for the first time. I am absolutely in love! Per our several phone conversations I knew how devoted you are to each and every puppy but after meeting each of your own dogs in your home and seeing first hand the warm and loving environment in which these puppies get their first start in life is truly a blessing. Your daily pictures and video of my little boy playing with his sisters are so prescious. It makes me feel like I am experiencing his first few weeks right there with him and this means a lot to me. Your informational blogs you post has totally prepared me to know what to expect, from feeding him to what size and type of cage to buy and everything in between. And I know from our continuous conversations we will have even after I bring my little boy home you will so wisely guide me through any questions, concerns, or problem solving solutions I may have, and of course laughter and chuckles of each new adventurous puppy step my little boy makes. Sally, again I want to thank you for not being a puppy mill breeder but rather a loving and devoted puppy creator of perfection and love in which I saw shine and radiate from each and every one of your puppies. In all of my research, and I researched several, did I expect to find one like you. You are absolutely one of a kind, thank you very much.

  17. I think I mentioned this during one of our phone calls, but the support you’ve provided so far Sally, is the reason I’m choosing to go with you (and I don’t even have a puppy yet!) After all the questions I’ve asked, I feel COMFORTABLE that I’ll have support even after the puppy comes home with me. Being a first-time dog owner and talking with other breeders felt a little disparaging: there was little interest in me as a potential puppy parent and it seemed like my questions were annoying them. I’m really looking forward to pictures of my own little baby and stories of his/her antics :D

  18. It is so amazing to be part of the process from the very beginning! This is such a unique experience. I can’t wait to see those pictures coming in and be able to keep in regular contact with a breeder that goes above and beyond!

  19. I met Sally just before she began weaning the litter before my puppy (I think?), and I had the privilege of talking with a couple of that litter’s parents over the phone as they kindly took the time to tell me about their experiences watching their own little Maltese Angle Baby grow. (Special thank you to those parents, whose names I won’t share for privacy sake: sharing your experiences really helped me.) Listening to them exude joy and happiness was heartwarming and enlightening—but you guys!!—Listening to someone else talk about their puppy is *nothing* like going through it yourself with YOUR puppy! My puppy is only two days old and already, I’ve got over 50 photos and a video that I’ve shared with my friends and family and I can’t stop looking at them! I’m probably legit-obsessed, looking at my handsome little puppy and studying his every feature (tiny little white eyelashes, who he’s cuddling with, the way he crawls)! Watching him snuggle into the others, or hearing a little whimper here or there while I’m on the phone with Sally (who I talk with frequently!)…I’m already falling in love :) NOW I know exactly what the parents before me felt: the exuberance, excitement and pure joy! Eight weeks feels so far away! For now, I *can’t wait* until that two week point! Thrilled! This is my first puppy (or dog) since I was a kid and my life is already beginning to change in the most lovely, and unexpected ways. Thank you, Sally!

  20. I wanted to update on my puppy experience so far:
    We’re just under three weeks from puppy-pick-up date and my experience so far has been unreal! I was able to meet my tiny little baby at the two-week mark…holding him for the first time sent me to cloud nine and I don’t think I’ve been off that cloud since lol! I was also able to meet both Cozy (whose beautiful expression just melts me) and Benji (who I’m smitten over) I’m so happy these two beautiful creatures are my puppy’s parents!

    The best way I can describe my experience so far is that I’m watching a long time dream come true before my eyes. I’ve wanted a Maltese for SO many years and Sally is sharing her blessings and talents and making my dream happen. I talk with her often and my puppy photo album is updated frequently so I can watch my puppy grow and learn about what he’s doing day to day! They grow so fast that it’s like every couple days when there’s a new group of pictures, it’s like I have a brand new puppy and he’s closer and closer to my dream come true. It’s just amazing to watch their beautiful little faces, bodies and personalities develop into little individuals!

    Beyond watching my puppy grow, Sally has been really amazing with suggestions, guidance and ideas for my little puppy once he comes home. Of course these are all just *suggestions* and what I use/do will change as my puppy grows, but as a first time puppy mama, I’ve been so grateful to have some guidance to set up a launching pad for my and my puppies life together.

    Just under three weeks until I have my puppy in my arms again and this time for good…it seems so close yet so far away!

  21. We are going to be Angel Baby parents soon. Our baby is due at the end of December 2018. Sally has been wonderful! Our baby isn't even born yet and she has put us in touch with other parents and they have shared with us their experience with their Angel Babies. We are so very excited and thank you to all who have been a part of the process. We can't say enough about Sally's wonderful communication and keeping us informed about our Angel Baby! Seeing the videos and photos of the puppies has been so fun and made our waiting time easier.

  22. Oh I'm just so excited to be involved in this process. I'm already falling in love with Denise and Larry's little Ritzy from all the photos you have shared with me. I feel their joy and I don't think it's possible to over-communicate, I welcome it. :)

  23. Sally has been a great communicator. She called the day Ava was born and before I even met Ava she had posted 179 photos for me. We have spoken at length via phone regarding creating a healthy transition for when Ava comes home. She is a wealth of great information.

  24. I've read this post; we haven't put down a deposit yet and aren't at this stage yet, of course, but it sounds like communication after that will be a lot like communication before. Phone calls every few days, image/video updates periodically. Looking forward to seeing everyone soon! :thumbsup:

  25. Sally has been extremely communicative especially when it was close to the time for Coconut's mommy to deliver. It was so exciting to have a front row seat to his birth. We absolutely LOVED and cherish the pictures and videos of him growing up and playing with his siblings

  27. We lost a much loved Maltese last October, and putting some time between her passing and wanting time to grieve has been so hard. But now that we know the time has come to again complete our family I just can’t imagine we would ever think Sally would be “OVER COMMUNICATING!” We will be craving every news update and photo that would come our way. It will be the closest thing to being really involved in the process. We are so excited and ready to move on with this process!

  30. What to expect from the breeder? Well, I think you have this area covered very well! First, we as parents (I'm not one yet) can call you when we need advice or just to share or update you on one of your babies. But also, we can refer to this amazing website anytime of the day or night to your get your helpful hints or answers to concerns.

    There are not any breeders that I have heard of that do anything like this. You're amazing.

  31. Only yesterday, I reached out to Sally to inquire if I could be a potential parent to one of her puppies, and we've spoken on the phone for approximately 3 hours by now. She connected me with 2 families who got puppies from her, and they shared their fabulous experience with me. One family has a 6 month old puppy, and the other is waiting for their puppy who will be ready to go home in 7 weeks or so. She has emailed me the links to the two litters, and I've been looking at the 6 babies who have distinctive colored collars. So far, this has been the most thorough, highly communicative, high touch process. It's been amazing! Thank you. :)

  33. Sally is a great communicator so far. She is very clear about her expectations for potential parents. We enjoyed reading other's experience with Sally and look forward to the same kind of experience if we are so lucky to be chosen as a parent to an Angel Baby.

  34. Sally is the best when it comes to communication and helping prospective parents know the process in becoming an Angel Baby parent and how to prepare for their baby to come home. I have talked to her several times on the phone and emailed lots. Just last night I found out that one of the precious babys that Rose will deliver next week will be mine. I feel humble, blessed, and so ecstatic! Sally arranged a conference call for me with another Angel Baby parent which was very helpful and supportive. I know that as a breeder, I can depend upon Sally for support from before the birth of the baby to well beyond the time I am able to bring my baby home.

  38. We appreciate the Quality of this Breeder for so many reasons. First, she makes sure each future parent understands not only the delightful fun and emotional highs of having a puppy but also the challenging times during the puppy’s weaning stage, chewing, potty training, and essential nutritional needs. Sally leads you to do some serious soul-searching to make sure you are absolutely committed to the lifetime care of this precious living being. We are taking this commitment very seriously. We are in the process of posting emergency procedures on our refrigerator about phone numbers of loving people in our lives who have made a commitment to take care our little Maltese in the event we’re ever in an emergency situation, such as hospitalization or injuries or serious illness (such as the current fear of coronavirus). We want to make sure that provisions have been made ahead of time and that a plan is in place for this little Maltese to have loving, caring people during its whole lifetime.
    Thank you, Sally, for your thoroughness in guiding potential parents with this informative pre-training Blog. It's reassuring to know you'll be available after the adoption too. We are thrilled to be considered as owners of one of your Maltese.

  39. Sally,
    I have met many breeders over the years, but you are the only one that not only told us what to expect, but let us talk to several of your prior clients who told us the same exact things. There was all positives about the puppies and especially the care and love you provide. It was unbelievable how the stories of how you kept parents updated with pictures, videos and funny things their pups do, is so special knowone I have dealt with would take that kind of time. The blogs you have set up shows how important it is for you to make sure your babies are cared for in the way that babies should be cared for. Making things so simple for us, even giving us links to certain toys, travel crates, detergent to use etc...
    Without this help it can make things much harder. Thank you, we are happy that we are going to be considered as parents for one of your little ones!

  42. It's very nice indeed to have a breeder who is detail oriented and sensitive to the feelings of the new "parents". We don't know who our puppy is just yet, but, it will be very comforting to follow the progress and know all is going well. I see the new parents are very happy to have this communication and it offers some relief while you wait. Thank you, Sally.

  58. The transparency, availability, and accessibility of breeders is so important to me embarking on a journey to find a new puppy. If you're going to commit to decades of building a relationship with, caring for, sharing space with, and investing in a new puppy - you're doing yourself (and the breed) a huge favor in being a part of a community that values wellness, health, socialization and successful integration into new homes and lifestyles. I was impressed in how immediately I was able to reach Sally, how much time she spent on the phone with me, the interest she took in me and my home, and how thorough and empathetic she was in opening the door for me to confirm that we'd be a good potential match. I'm relieved to know that I have a knowledgable resource and a solid, values-driven community of pet owners to be a part of as an angel baby parent.

  68. I've ever thought that I would choose a breeder out of the blog and her website. The more I look at the pictures, video of her angel babies, the more I read about her blog, I'm enchanted. I have finally found my breeder! I send her an email and she called me back the next day. We talked several hours on the phone. She's a great communicator. She is kind and I can tell that she's genuinely loves and cares for her babies. She's always available for any questions, concerns. She's well rounded knowledgeable. You ask and she answer. We are still waiting for our puppy but we are rest assure that Sally would always be there to lend support for us. We are so honor to be one of her babies' parent.

We want to be sure we give our baby the best life possible. We're so glad we found Sally!!

  70. These blogs are super knowledgeable! My husband and I spent several hours tonight reading all these blogs Shally posted here. The more we read, the more we realize how much we love this breed and how desire we want to take one of these tiny cute baby to our home. Even though we can’t visit there or talk face to face with Sally at the moment, these blogs help us a lot to understand how much care and love these puppies gain from this excellent breeder. We admire Sally’s opened communication way. Looking forward to working with you further and moving on to the next step. We are so excited on the adventure!

  76. I’m grateful to sally for all her communication and phone calls if I have a question. Reading the blog has really helped me to have a better understanding of caring for my puppy and the adoption process.
    I will be able to give the puppy a wonderful loving home as I’m a grandma with 10 grandkids who I adore. I handle things with information and love.
    I’m a natural caregiver aim to please.
    As I read more and learn I know I can provide a home for my baby.

  80. This is so awesome! It’s nice to know that I’ll be able to learn about my puppy before they’re old enough to come home with me! Both to prepare and to be excited :)

  81. Sally, we are a bit overwhelmed by how complete your service is. Randy thought he was a concierge doctor and proud of it but he can't compete with the level of thoroughness you provide--not to mention your obvious pride and care in these lovely animals. Angels, I should say! thank you and we are anxious to proceed!

  83. Sally's "investment" in both her puppies, and new parents is so very impressive. It so far surpasses any expecations I had. She clearly has such a huge heart for all of the participants involved!

  84. I love how involved you are in this process. You work so hard to find the right family for the pups. That really shows how much you care for them. I love talking with you! You give so much helpful advice and make sure we know all about the pup!

  86. Sally interviews us as much as we interview her! She is a wealth of information and insight and is more than happy to set you up on the path for success if you have and questions. This is her life's work and it shows.

  87. I have never known someone to be as open, involved, and communicative as you. I had not received so much as a phone call, email or photo before I brought my first baby home when she was eight weeks old many years ago. I feel like the second she is born, I will get to be a Mommy through your outstanding communication and bringing me into the fold (even before she is born)!

  90. It makes me so happy you’re an “over-communicator” on the health and progress of my new baby. I will be excited to hear from you and see all the videos and pics. This warms my heart so much.

  93. Hi Sally,
    I love how much you will communicate with me at each step. I definitely would want to be a part of the process and you helped me feel like a part of the family already which I really love. How much time you spent with me on the phone in our initial conversation I know my baby will be well taken care of. I already have your number programmed in my phone : ). You have made me feel so comfortable to be able to ask questions when I get the chance to adopt my very first baby. I know that you will also be there for us even after I take my baby home.

  95. We are excited for the next steps and the communication you will provide. Too much information is never enough, especially as we wait and as well once we know about our little angel's pending birth. We look forward to and encourage updates.

  99. I have talked with Sally on the phone she is very vested in the puppies and always very happy to help you understand the process. Sally has a lot of valuable information to keep you informed of your babies growths and development along the way and very willing to keep you updated on the milestones that she sees with each puppy Connie H.

  100. I've always been the one everyone comes to for answers so having someone I can ask is definitely a change for me. I'm looking forward to learning more and becoming a better puppy parent for this new little one to come. It will be fun getting to see the process from the beginning, not just when I get to take this one home. Judi W

  101. Sally has exceeded my expectations already. This blog alone has a wealth of information that other breeders don't remotely come close to providing.
    Communication already has been incredible. I am THRILLED to be part of the entire process of the birth of my baby and the ongoing daily process of progress and development.
    Never before could I have imagined that I could be involved in the whole process. NO other breeders we talked to offered anything like this.
    I can tell I will always be referring to her blog site for ongoing information.

  102. I don’t believe there’s such a thing as too much communication! I absolutely love that you will be keeping us informed and updated until it’s time to bring our baby home! I truly appreciate your time and attention to detail ... it says a lot about you, not only as a breeder, but as a person! I have enjoyed speaking with you on several occasions ... it is so comforting to know the love and level of care these babies receive from you until they go to their forever homes!
