LocalPuppyBreeders.com maintains an organized listing of accredited dog breeders for all breeds across the United States, including the Maltese shih tzu. The website is organized so that users can use drop-down menus to filter between states and specify a breed.
The Maltese shih tzu is called the mal-shi on LocalPuppyBreeders.com and between dog breeders. The website's purpose is to allow users to create a comprehensive list of breeders within an area for a specific breed of dog. Following this, users can visit the breeder, unlike a majority of other websites that push sight unseen purchases of dogs that may end up coming from puppy mills or other unethical sources.
