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.

I decided I wanted a puppy and the next day this website came up and I immediately fell in love with her. Only 48 hours after I purchased her she was here. She is already like my best friend and very well trained and healthy. I highly recommend this website
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.
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.
We had a great experience with Premier Pups. We feel very fortunate to have found our little guy Cooper. He's a wonderful dog.
We are very happy that we went through Premier Pups to get Max, he is doing great! Max is perfect addition to our family. Thanks Premier Pups!!! We would certainly recommend this place for any who loves dogs.

This review is well overdue. First, let me start by saying I had an AMAZING experience purchasing my puppy through this company. I purchased my Maltese in July 2019. Everyone was so patient with me, pleasantly mannered and was there to answer all of my questions that I had. I am the type of person that is extremely skeptical about online purchasing especially for something so special like a puppy. But based on all of the wonderful reviews, because of course I did my homework and thoroughly picked through every possible aspect of this website. Everything was so very true. All of the positive feedback is accurate. Ryan was especially helpful, he actually dropped Brooklyn off to us in the Orange County section of upstate Ny (Wallkill). Brooklyn is such a wonderful puppy. Everywhere we go someone stops to ask me where she was purchased. She loves to play, she listens, and most of all she loves her family sooooooooo much. Now having her, I couldn’t imagine our lives without her. I want to thank premier pups for being the most professional, honest, thorough, truthful website out here for potential puppy parents. I would definitely recommend this puppy online site to any and everyone. If ever I needed to purchase another puppy I wouldn’t think twice about using you guys again. Thank you so very much!
Been looking for a new puppy for a while, me and my wife. Once we saw Angel on the site we fell in love with her and just had to have her.
Martin is doing wonderful! He has been very playful and happy and is enjoying his new toys and home. Thank you for making this happen!
