Welcome! Adura Maltese has gone back to the future. We will be again known as Angel Bay Maltese going forward. This is to honor our very first show dog and princess, "Angel" - Scylla's Lite of Angel Bay b. 2001 - d. 2015. My eternal gratitude to Vicki Abbott for allowing me to be owned by the little girl who stole my heart and set me down the path of Maltese dogs 20 years ago.
We are a small in-home preservation breeding program located in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area of Texas. The dogs are born, raised, and live in our home. We do not have a "kennel facility". We breed primarily for health and temperament. Proper structure, coat texture and color are also important. As are the adorable heads our program is known for. We breed only purebred Maltese and our purpose is to have quality dogs to show, and hopefully become parents of the next generation.
However, since not all puppies meet our strict standards for show dogs, and although we would love to, we just cannot keep every puppy from every litter. So we occasionally have puppies available to approved homes as altered pets. We breed very few litters a year and since Maltese are small dogs they have small litters. 1-3 puppies is normal, 4 or more puppies are rare. So even if we do have 2 litters in a year we may still not have any puppies available to place. This is the main reason we keep a waiting list.
Some of our dogs are conformation, obedience, or agility champions. And some of our dogs have all three - conformation, obedience, and agility titles! Some of our dogs are certified therapy dogs as well! Please let us know what activities you are looking to participate in with your dog and we can work together to find the right dog for you.
If you are interested in a show dog, please send us an email introducing yourself and we are very happy to explore that opportunity with you.
As a proud member of the American Maltese Association since 2001, I abide by their Code of Ethics.
At this time, unless you already own an Adura or Angel Bay dog, ALL my puppies and dogs are spayed or neutered before they leave my possession. I do not sell anything intact. This means they are 5-6 months old before they are ready to leave. However, this age coincides with the time at which we make a final determination of "show quality", and make a final decision on which ones will stay with us to become show champions. You may place a deposit earlier. However, they may not leave until they are spayed or neutered at 5 months.
