The Maltipom is a designer breed crossed between a Maltese and a Pomeranian. Though not much is known of the origin or history of this breed, the Maltese and the equally gentle and highly intelligent Pomeranian are both characteristics prominent within this hybrid.
Appearance and Grooming
Like many mixed breed dogs, the overall appearance can vary. In general, you can expect your new puppy to have a long, flowing coat of straight, soft hair like that of the Maltese parent with the face, ears and stature of the Pomeranian parent. The most common colors include white, black, orange, red, cream, or any combination of these colors. Categorized as having non-shedding or hypoallergenic coat means that this dog is a good choice for allergy sufferers.
This hybrid is a gentle, affectionate dog that loves to be around its family and will typically form a stronger bond with one particular member of the family. It also exhibits a protective nature sounding an alarm through barking when it’s alerted to strange noises or people. They are sociable and well behaved with other pets and people if socialized at an early age.
Family and Companionship
These dogs are naturally good with children that are kind to them, though they can become a little dominant and territorial toward other pets, especially dogs, in the household. They expect a lot of attention and so won’t do well within a household where it is left alone for long periods of time.
The Maltipom needs plenty of activity and mental stimulation to keep them from developing problematic behaviors like barking, chewing and digging. A 30-minute walk daily and plenty of play time and should make for a happy and healthy puppy.
Training and Socialization
This intelligent dog generally responds well to training. However, this breed like many smaller dogs has a tendency to become dominant and may develop small dog syndrome. It important to use a firm and consistent hand in training, yet not be overpowering where your pooch is afraid or loses trust. Socialization and training should be started at an early age to prevent the development of problem behaviors.

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.

We picked up Sammy two weeks ago and he’s just fit right in. He’s been checked by the vet, and is a happy/healthy puppy. We love him so much already.

Premier Pups is the best! They keep you updated from the moment you purchase your pup and check up on you after you pick them up! My vet said Milo was the best looking puppy! Highly recommend.

Such a wonderful dog for our family. We couldn’t have been happier with the process or the puppy. Our puppy was healthy and well adjusted to kids and other animals when he arrived home. I would recommend working with this group to bring home a puppy.
