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: Madison - formerly Sugar
Breed: Maltese
Client: Liz Sullivan
Loc: Joliet IL

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 !

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.

My son purchased my little love for me for a Christmas present after I had lost my husband. Her name was Madison but she is now my little Tinkerbelle. Our “gotcha day” was December 2, 2017 and my little love just celebrated her 2nd birthday. She has been the perfect little companion for me. She goes absolutely everywhere I go, or I don’t go. Thank you for such a beautiful little girl to give me all her unconditional love. Proud momma, Kathy

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!
