When you purchase a Maltese puppy from a CADF breeder, you are purchasing from a dedicated, conscientious breeder whose priority is to produce healthy specimens of their own breed.


All CADF member breeders have agreed to abide by our Code of Ethics.  Our Maltese breeders screen their breeding stock for known hereditary problems, specific to the Maltese breed. This allows you to purchase your puppy with confidence, knowing that your breeder has taken all of the necessary steps to provide you with the healthiest puppy possible.
