BREED INFORMATION

MALTESE


One of our favorite toy purebreds, the Maltese is widely known for being very affectionate, alert, intelligent and energetic. Their origin is said to stem from the Malta Island; hence its name, although some people also believe this breed came from Asia. Nevertheless, the Maltese have been around for a really long time dating as far back as the first century. Maltese are very docile and can be quite friendly to people they don’t know. They have a lot of energy and tend to prefer the company of older humans to kids. They are also very obedient and will go to any lengths to protect their territory. Unlike many other breeds, the Maltese prefer being indoors than outside. This makes them well-suited for the apartment life as they crave close, human contact more than anything else. They do not need a lot in terms of exercise and just a regular, daily, 30-minute walk in the park would suffice. Browse our selection of Maltese puppies for sale today. Note: Maltese are very friendly but would have to be supervised when playing with kids younger than the age of ten. Extra supervision is advised when they are around kids they don’t know.

After the loss of our 11 years old Maltese (Ally) last year we didn’t think of getting another dog, but all that changed ... Browsing through many sites and reading reviews Premier Pups was the one! Looking through the small breeds, Madison (yes, kept the name) looked straight into my eyes and within a few days she was part of our family. She has been with us for 5 weeks, now a healthy, energetic 3 1/2 months old and 4 lbs that is keeping all of us active. Premier Pups made it so easy, very specific instructions of what to do, everything she would need in the coming days from food to medicine, keeping in touch with her progress; the care was beyond my expectations. I wasn’t too sure about the flight from Ohio to NY but that was surprisingly smooth. I was able to track the progress the entire way, received timely notifications from Delta and she was available for pick up within 30 min of the flight landing at LGA. The three of us and my parents went to welcome her ... she is precious, we love her! THANK YOU SO MUCH PREMIER PUPS!

I purchased my Teacup Maltese from Premier Pups on 04/08/2016 and drove up to pick him up on 04/09/16. So I have only had him for 3 weeks, but he is adorable and so tiny. I really hope he stays that tiny, well he is 2lbs now and is suppose to be 4 - 5 lbs. I am having a few issues with the puppy pad training but I guess that is normal. So my over all experience with Premier Pups has been a good one. I know that it is a costly choice but as anything in life if you want the best you must pay for it. I love my baby boy.

We picked Max up on Sunday afternoon (July 30) and he was very unsure. We had a 3 hour ride home and he didn't settle down until we were about an hour into the drive. Once we arrived he peeked up a bit and played with his new toys. We are now 3 days in and Max is eating great and he loves to play!!! He is simply adorable and we are totally in love!!! Premier Pups has been amazing!!!! I can call and have questions answered and I love that they call to check on our progress. I have already referred several friends to Premier Pups.

Breed: Maltese

Loc: Riverside, CA

I was really nervous purchasing a pup on the internet, but made the plunge and now am the happy owner of my little LEXI who is an adorable 3 lb Maltese. She flew into LAX on a very rainy day. I was so happy to finally meet my little girl and she was excited to see me. The starter kit was a godsend - I brought with me a spoon and a bowl and gave Lexi some water and mixed together a little baby food with karo syrup and she gobbled it up. We relaxed a little before getting on the road. I put a puppy pee pad on the floor board of car by my feet. (My husband was driving) During the drive I put her on pad and she immediately peed. Then she cuddled in my arms for the next 2 1/2 hours home. Her first night was a little hectic with all the travel. I offered her kibble and she managed to eat a few bites and then gave her baby food and karo. She was placed in her crate and cried for about 25 minutes but I ignored her. I set my alarm for 3 hours and got up to feed her as directed. I am using puppy pee pads in the bathroom and she is using them regularly on a very 30 minute time for potty! The next day we noticed she was a little lethargic and Dr. Rypka from DoctorPup was fantastic. I posted a question on the website earlier in day and he called from SC to CA on a Friday night and guided us through giving her the appropriate amount of food to keep her engine running. She wasn't having BM's which concerned me - He told me to make sure no dried stool was on her bum - there was a little so I used warm water and dawn soap to soak her bottom and 30 minutes later she had a BM! Dr. Rypka was so friendly and really calmed my nerves. Lexi is a lot of work - I'm not going to deny it, but after 5 days she is on a routine which is VERY important for ME and Her. We love her immensely. She goes for her first vet visit tomorrow, is running around the house (bouncing like a bunny) and is crying less and less each night when placed in crate for "night-night". I bought a puppy sling to wear around my shoulder and took her on a walk last night around the block. I can't wait until she has all her shots so we can begin walking together with her feet on the ground. Thank you Premier Pups for making the purchase a positive one. I look forward to sharing many years and memories together with my little LEXI Poo.

We had our eye in premier pups for a few weeks, and their communication was great. I texted a ton and always got replies fast. On Saturday, we decided to drive down to Ohio(it was a 4 hr drive) and pick up Sapphire! We renamed her potato. She is the cutest thing!!! She threw up once from traveling in the car, and so far she only eats baby food and Kari syrup. She is so cute and loved.
