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
I absolutely would recommend Premier Pups. I was hesitant to purchase a pup that I didn't see in person. I also wasn't sure I wanted to put a pup through the flight from Ohio to Philadelphia. After talking to several staff members, at different times, I felt reassured that Delta Airlines handled many pups to Philadelphia Airport and that they are handled with VIP care. So, I decided my obsession out weighed my fears for a Maltese. I must say that Lexi arrived happy, energetic and full of love. As promised on their website, they called a few days to make sure Lexi was doing well and to see if I had any questions or concerns. My vet said she was so healthy she did not need any of the medications she came with as a precaution. As you can see in this photo, at 10 weeks old, day I received her, she is beautiful and healthy.
I purchased my Teacup Maltese from Premier Pups on 04/08/2016 and drove up to pick him up on 04/09/16. So I have only had him for 3 weeks, but he is adorable and so tiny. I really hope he stays that tiny, well he is 2lbs now and is suppose to be 4 - 5 lbs. I am having a few issues with the puppy pad training but I guess that is normal. So my over all experience with Premier Pups has been a good one. I know that it is a costly choice but as anything in life if you want the best you must pay for it. I love my baby boy.
Premier has been awesome to work with A+ service . They set me up with my perfect Maltese her name is Cinderella. She is healthy , smart and love being around our children. I love how Premier texts and emails about the pups to ensure everyone is transitioning. Thank you again.
We had our eye in premier pups for a few weeks, and their communication was great. I texted a ton and always got replies fast. On Saturday, we decided to drive down to Ohio(it was a 4 hr drive) and pick up Sapphire! We renamed her potato. She is the cutest thing!!! She threw up once from traveling in the car, and so far she only eats baby food and Kari syrup. She is so cute and loved.
Razzy has been such an amazing addition to our family! She is so smart and well behaved, I couldn’t have asked for a better puppy!!
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.
Premier has been awesome to work with. They matched us with a perfect set of Maltese. Healthy, smart and love being around our children. I love how Premier texts and emails about the pups to ensure everyone is transitioning. Thank you again.
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.
