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.

We received our boy Frosty back in 2008 when your name was Premier Pup. He was so tiny he fit in the palm of our hand. He left this world yesterday at the age of 13 and he was the best pup a person could ask for. Thank you for making him a part of our family. We hope in due time to receive another pup ??

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.

I purchased Cory (formerly known as Brady) from Premier Pups. I surprised my daughter on her 9th birthday with him back in June 2018. We now just celebrated Cory's 1st birthday and had a blast. He was so excited and has been deeply loved by the whole family. Thanks to the people at Premier Pups for their amazing work and strive to make dreams come true. Cory is one happy healthy pup. And my daughter got the dog she only dreamed of.

Name: Sienna
Breed: Maltese
Client: John
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

Hard to believe that we purchased Madison almost 4 years ago ! She is such a sweetheart and we couldn't be more pleased with our little Angel and all the happiness that she has brought to our family. She plays like she is still a puppy & has so much energy ! Our vet recommended that we take her off dog food since it contains a lot of dyes to eliminate the tear staining & give her fresh meats & vegetables. Which she absolutely loves her fresh chicken & broccoli. Thank you Premier Puppy !

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.
