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.
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.

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!
We had a great experience with Premier Pups. We feel very fortunate to have found our little guy Cooper. He's a wonderful dog.
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!
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.
Just wanted to express my gratitude for the great pup we purchased. The company is great to work with. Shopping a micro puppy isn't easy but everyone made it easy to transition her to her new home. We are head over heals!
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 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.
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!!
We received our boy Frosty back in 2008 when your name was Premier Pup. He was so tiny he fit in the palm of our hand. He left this world yesterday at the age of 13 and he was the best pup a person could ask for. Thank you for making him a part of our family. We hope in due time to receive another pup ??
