I sent my beautiful Maus to Italy, to visit Tiziana Saracini of Dell'Arno D'Argento Maltese and to be shown and campaigned in Europe. She used Maus at stud in return.  Maus was made up in 6 shows flat with 6 CACIBs and a BIS all breeds on the way.  She had promised me she would care for him, look after his teeth and coat and I believed her.  I'm not sure what happened, but the dog I received back in February of 2006 nearly broke my heart.

His coat was more broken than any broken coat I have ever set eyes on.  I had no option but to clip him off.  He had raging fungal ear infections, deep brown stains down the sides of his head.  His teeth were filthy and he lost 2 when I had them cleaned by my vet.  He had a tape worm infestation which was so advanced it had already caused a digestive tract and urinary infection.  He was quiet, almost broken spirited.  He won't allow me to touch his mouth even now.  He now doesn't want me to cut his nails which he never minded.  After 3 months of hard work he is starting to come out of his shell again, wags his tail, kisses me, has started barking at everything again but won't leave me out of his sight and doesn't want to leave my front gate.

To this day she has not contacted me to explain the state of my dog.  Thank goodness I did not sell him to her.
