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.

Breed: Maltese

Loc: Lodi, Ca

I’m a single mom and my son asked me for a brother or sister. Since that wasn’t going to happen any time soon we adopted Chloe (originally Madison) back in March. Since then she has made our family complete. I thought I would’ve had a problem, because my son has ADHD. However, their bond is that of a brother and sister. Chloe loves and follows him around. Even when he’s wild and crazy. We are beyond happy to have her in our lives. For those of you that are wondering (like I was) her adult weight stated 5-7lbs. As of now she’s 4.8lbs.

Shiro Okome (White Rice) came to our family this past Sunday (24 April). We picked him up at the Airport Cargo facility after his flight in and surprisingly was very active and ready to play after his long flight. It's been 5 days and he's adjusted very well to our family. My daughter suffers from depression and Shiro has done wonders for her well being. We are overjoyed with Shiro and very thankful for Premier Pups with bringing him to our lives!

Breed: Maltese

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

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.

Name: Madison
Breed: Maltese

Loc: South Park, PA

My son and daughter-in-law bought me this little precious pup for my Christmas present. I cannot say enough about how much she has changed my life! Her name was Madison but I call her Tinkerbelle or my “baby love”. She is the best little puppy. I purchased the Pup-pee-poo Palace and it has been a wonderful addition. Tinkerbelle sleeps in it every night, not a bit of trouble about whining to wimpering from day 1. She was housebroken in 10 days and we got her on December 2, 2017. I took her to her 1st vet appointment and everyone there just fell in love with my little Tinkerbelle. The vet told me she was perfect!!!! I can’t thank the people at Premier Pups and my son and daughter-in-law for getting me the absolute perfect present.

Loc: New Jersey

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.

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.
