Shakespeare, a 2 month old Maltese
Shakespeare, yes the English legend, is a 2 month old Maltese. The breeder gave him away because he couldn't sell the puppy because of his right eye.
A Maltese puppy is very expensive from $750 to $4,000 depending on the parents. It's big business for the breeders. The problem is that a puppy with obvious eye problems will never sell, so it's either kill it or find somebody that will pay $50 or a $100.
He's not yet used to meet people.
