The Maltese is one of the most ancient of the toy breeds with a history that can be traced back over two millennia. Despite their prominence throughout history, the exact origin of the Maltese dog is uncertain. Many believe the breed was developed in the Isle of Malta in the Mediterranean Sea from Spitz- or Spaniel-type dogs. Others believe they were developed in Italy, and still others believe that they came originally from Asia and had a part in developing many of the smaller Asian dogs. English breeders developed the Maltese as we know him now. Many of the Maltese in the United States today trace their heritage back to English imports during the early 1800’s. 

Appearance and Grooming

Their gorgeous coats are pure white, silky, and straight, reaching all the way to the ground. They don’t have an undercoat like most breeds so shedding is minimal. Because they lack this undercoat they are intolerant to many outside elements so be sure that it’s not too hot or too cold before taking them outdoors. Because of their pure white coat, staining can be very noticeable. Regular cleaning and brushing, especially around the eyes and feet can prevent discoloration and maintain a beautiful shine. Many owners put the hair on the top of their Maltese's head into a topknot to keep it away from the eyes. If you decide to do this, be sure to use coated bands that won't break the hair. Gum disease is prevalent in this breed so regular brushing of the teeth at least two or three times a week to remove tartar buildup and the bacteria is important. Daily brushing is even better if you want to prevent gum disease and bad breath.

Temperament

These dogs are gentle-mannered, affectionate and without fear. They are among the gentlest mannered of all little dogs, yet they are lively and playful as well as vigorous. Their trusting and tender personalities make them the perfect lap dog and cuddly companion.

Family and Companionship

These dogs thrive in a home with quiet older children or adults only who will treat him with the care they need. Due to their small frame it is not advisable to have them in the same home as small children as play can be too rough on such a delicate dog. They do get along quite well with other dogs and cats if they are socialized to them at an early age.

Exercise

Due to their small stature, these dogs don’t need much in the way of exercise. A brisk 20 to 30 minute walk each day and some moderate play indoors each day will be plenty to keep this dog happy and healthy.

Training and Socialization

These dogs are people-oriented, which makes training a fairly simple process. These dogs respond especially well to positive reinforcements such as treats, praise, and play. Like most every dog, the Maltese needs early socialization including exposure to many different people, sights, sounds, and experiences. Socialization helps ensure that your puppy grows up to be a well-rounded dog.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average lifespan is 12 to 15 years.

No. The Maltese sheds very little if at all. They are considered one of the best breeds for people who suffer from dog allergies.

Maltese’s are very small dogs who enjoy play, however, they are not often recommended with families that have small children as young children may not quite understand how to be gentle, especially if left unsupervised.

White. Thought they do have some tan or lemon markings around their ears the rest of their coat is fully White.

All dogs will face ailments as they grow older, just like humans. The most common health issues found in the Maltese are patellar luxation, progressive retinal atrophy (PRA), patent ductus arteriosus, portosystemic liver shunt, white dog shaker syndrome, and hypoglycemia.

Yes, the Maltese are highly intelligent. They love learning new skills and performing learned tricks, which makes training a pretty simple process.

This breed requires a minimal amount of exercise each day to remain fit and healthy. Short strolls either in a park or a yard are great for these pooches.

This depends on the look that you’re going for. If you prefer your Maltese to have a longer coat then you’ll need to brush your little one daily as well as wash their face to avoid tear staining around the eyes. If you are keeping your dog’s coat shorter, brushing every couple of days as well as cleaning of the face each day is sufficient. A weekly bath will also keep your Maltese’s coat clean and soft.

No. Unlike Poodle mixes, there is only one Maltese.

Like most small dogs, the Maltese is a spirited animal that tends to do things on their terms. The most effective way to train your Maltese is with proper socialization at an early age as well as practicing patience, consistency and most positive reinforcement. These dogs love to be told they did something well, so this is a big benefit in terms of training.

This breed was founded on the Mediterranean island of Malta and was developed to be the companion pet of wealthy, cultured families.

Halos are a part of the Maltese’s black points and are quite beautiful. Not all Maltese have these.

It's always best to feed a high quality dry dog food instead of wet canned food to help your dog maintain healthy gums and teeth. For optimal health, offer a formula with wholesome ingredients and all-natural preservatives (such as a vitamin blend and/or herbs). Avoid artificial preservatives when you can.

The Papillon and the Bichon Frise are both very similar to the Maltese breed.

Please be aware that there is no official separate breed called a “teacup Maltese.” This is a marketing and advertising ploy rather than a true recognized type of dog.

Loc: Charleston SC

Sienna is a wonderful extremely outgoing teacup young girl. She sometimes goes to work with me in a long term care home. The residents love her and she loves them more. When she arrived at the airport she was as calm and laid back as could be. They commented how most dogs are nervous and don’t want to come out of there crates. She is pad trained when indoors. Plays well with others. She was spayed a couple weeks ago and never touched her sutures. Back to normal in 36 hours. She plays fetch with tennis balls. Sleeps in the living room on her own never barks to get in the bed. Which I would not mind but she appears happy and secure on her own. Thunder storms don’t bother her. She isn’t happy getting a bath at home but the groomer says she is a angel. I really appreciate the fact that premier pups encourages reviews. I read them all and found that of all the online puppies for sale. Premier Pups had the best reviews and has reasonable pricing. Sienna says she is happy with me too. John Gebo

Hello, i have previously left a review and said i would come back and provide an update. I have had G for over a year now and he’s weighs 6pds. He’s is an absolutely sweetheart! I loved my experience with Premier Pups, i just wish they wouldn’t advertise the pups as “teacup” when they are not. G was listed as a teacup MaltiPom and he has exceeded the length and weight of “teacups”. No regrets, because I truly love my pup. I just was really looking for a teacup dog at the time and that’s what i expected.

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!

If only all online businesses were this good... Received our puppy last night. We’re in love. Checked her out at the vet this morning. Passed with flying colors. Dealing with Premier Pups has been a pleasure: 1) They answer the phone. 2) Their staff is knowledgeable, helpful and responsive. 3) They deliver. Cannot recommend them enough.

My son purchased my little love for me for a Christmas present after I had lost my husband. Her name was Madison but she is now my little Tinkerbelle. Our “gotcha day” was December 2, 2017 and my little love just celebrated her 2nd birthday. She has been the perfect little companion for me. She goes absolutely everywhere I go, or I don’t go. Thank you for such a beautiful little girl to give me all her unconditional love. Proud momma, Kathy

We have now purchased two pups from Premier Pups. We have been very satisfied with both purchases. They have excellent customer service. When we took both pups to the vet, we were told both of our babies were in perfect health condition. The vert was surprised she could not find any defects. Pictured is my Maltese. She has been the light of my life. Today is her first birthday and Premier was kind enough to check in again to see how she was doing. I would purchase here agin if I am ever in the market of another dog.

Just wanted to express my gratitude for the great pup we purchased. The company is great to work with. Shopping a micro puppy isn't easy but everyone made it easy to transition her to her new home. We are head over heals!
