Special Nurturing Notice

Puppies less than 2 lbs require the special care and attention the first 2 weeks in their new home. They need to eat every 2-3 hours, starting with their arrival.

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.

Name: Lexi (was Diamond)
Breed: Maltese
Client: Sharon
Loc: Horsham, PA

I absolutely would recommend Premier Pups. I was hesitant to purchase a pup that I didn't see in person. I also wasn't sure I wanted to put a pup through the flight from Ohio to Philadelphia. After talking to several staff members, at different times, I felt reassured that Delta Airlines handled many pups to Philadelphia Airport and that they are handled with VIP care. So, I decided my obsession out weighed my fears for a Maltese. I must say that Lexi arrived happy, energetic and full of love. As promised on their website, they called a few days to make sure Lexi was doing well and to see if I had any questions or concerns. My vet said she was so healthy she did not need any of the medications she came with as a precaution. As you can see in this photo, at 10 weeks old, day I received her, she is beautiful and healthy.

Max flew from Ohio to CA. I am so glad to find him with Premier pups. He is a small yet big bundle of joy in our life. I can't wait to get home everyday after work to catch a glance of him. His one look is complete stress buster. Max is possible thanks to 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.

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!

Name: Leo (previously Lennox)
Breed: Maltese
Client: Favian Rios
Loc: East Hampton, Ny

We got Lennox (now Leo) on May 8, 2020 and we couldn't have been more happy to get him and have him be part of our family. He is a loving, intelligent, alert, brave, and active dog and we just love him so much. We had come across Premier Pups because a family friend had recommended them because it's where the adopted their toy poodle. We would look ever day through the website awaiting the dog for us, and then finally we found Lennox. We immidently reserved him and couldn't wait to meet him. We called Premier Pups to make sure we reserved him properly and that everything was okay. They help us every step of the way to fully adopting Leo and they were very kind. Days before Lennox's arrive we had received a text from one of the Premier Pups employees saying that Lennox was not able to fly due to Covid-19 and that they would be driving him for Ohio to my State. We were kind of skeptically at first but we knew it would all work out. They sent us many text updates on how far they were making the pick up process very easy. Then they texted us that they have arrived and we got to meet Leo for the very first time and took him home. I remember him being so tiny. We brought him home and he didn't seem at all scared and began to eat the dry food Premier Pups had provided. Lennox (now Leo) is 4 month old and is growing up to be a wonderful dog and we couldn't be happier with Premier Pups. We still look through the website to this day maybe in search for a new fur baby.

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 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.
