List of Inspection Points
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.
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.
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 bought Lennox around Mother’s Day in 2018, for my mom (and the rest of us) it was love at first sight and we had made our decision.Currently he is about 2 years and 2 months old he is very adventurous, is very alert, loves meeting new people and new dogs, he is the absolute cutest dog in the world, a amazing friend, and loves laying next to or on you.If you are looking for small dogs or a dog general I recommend premier pups they have the best customer service and cutest dogs.
Jon Snow arrived in Tampa on June 23, 2020 at 1 pound 12 oz. He is now 12 weeks old and 2. 6 pounds. It was like being first time parents again only this time with a puppy. Primer Pup was in constant contact with us. This included constant phone and text messages from Lacey advising us of his travel status; the Facetime with him was priceless, I only wish I had recorded the session; then there are the follow=up check-in from Chelsea and Mike that reassured us, he was okay and that we were doing all the right things. Every time I had a question there was a live person to talk with. Jon Snow came with detail instruction for feeding, preventative medication and a real person checking in with me via a phone call every other day for the first week to ensure he was adjusting. We included membership with Dr. Pup (Dr. Gary Rypka) which I highly recommend. He actually called and spoke to us on a Sunday morning (four days after this little guy arrived) to discuss our concerns. I would not hesitate to go through Primer Pups again to get a healthy, happy puppy from reliable AKC breeders. My special thanks to Mike for all the little hints to get this little guy back on dry food and especially his constant reassurance that Jon Snow was right on que and that we were doing all the right things. Recently we were told that God created dogs as a way to show what unconditional love was all about... well Jon Snow is all that and more.
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!
