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 got rocky on June 30 and we couldn't be happier ! He is the cutest little guy with so much energy ! We love our little addition to our family
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 !
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.
Bear is such a happy puppy and is also very energetic. When we bought Bear we had an great experience with premier pups. They were so helpful and even called to make sure everything was ok with him even after we bought him.
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.
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.
Riley will be 3 this May. He is intelligent and personable! I couldnt love him more! Premierpups were very pleasurable to deal with. A+++ rating!
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 was really nervous purchasing a pup on the internet, but made the plunge and now am the happy owner of my little LEXI who is an adorable 3 lb Maltese. She flew into LAX on a very rainy day. I was so happy to finally meet my little girl and she was excited to see me. The starter kit was a godsend - I brought with me a spoon and a bowl and gave Lexi some water and mixed together a little baby food with karo syrup and she gobbled it up. We relaxed a little before getting on the road. I put a puppy pee pad on the floor board of car by my feet. (My husband was driving) During the drive I put her on pad and she immediately peed. Then she cuddled in my arms for the next 2 1/2 hours home. Her first night was a little hectic with all the travel. I offered her kibble and she managed to eat a few bites and then gave her baby food and karo. She was placed in her crate and cried for about 25 minutes but I ignored her. I set my alarm for 3 hours and got up to feed her as directed. I am using puppy pee pads in the bathroom and she is using them regularly on a very 30 minute time for potty! The next day we noticed she was a little lethargic and Dr. Rypka from DoctorPup was fantastic. I posted a question on the website earlier in day and he called from SC to CA on a Friday night and guided us through giving her the appropriate amount of food to keep her engine running. She wasn't having BM's which concerned me - He told me to make sure no dried stool was on her bum - there was a little so I used warm water and dawn soap to soak her bottom and 30 minutes later she had a BM! Dr. Rypka was so friendly and really calmed my nerves. Lexi is a lot of work - I'm not going to deny it, but after 5 days she is on a routine which is VERY important for ME and Her. We love her immensely. She goes for her first vet visit tomorrow, is running around the house (bouncing like a bunny) and is crying less and less each night when placed in crate for "night-night". I bought a puppy sling to wear around my shoulder and took her on a walk last night around the block. I can't wait until she has all her shots so we can begin walking together with her feet on the ground. Thank you Premier Pups for making the purchase a positive one. I look forward to sharing many years and memories together with my little LEXI Poo.
