A cross between the Maltese and the Poodle, the Maltipoo is one of the most sought-after designer puppies in the country. Their hypoallergenic, non-shedding coats make them a perfect fit for any allergy sufferers. These dogs were bred to show love and be loved, once in the presence of a Maltipoo it may be hard to go to any other breed. And if that doesn’t make them desirable enough, they are very easily trainable and enjoy the process.
Appearance and Grooming
These puppies have a low shedding coat and a fluffy, soft and wool-like texture which is medium to long and varies from slightly wavy to curly. The coat can have different colors such as cream, white or silver. They require regular brushing to keep their coats clean and clipping of their coats once or twice a year, though trimming around the eyes, muzzle and ears is recommended more often. The ears also need to be cleaned to get rid of dirt, debris and moisture. This breed needs to have regular dental check-ups and nail care. It is recommended to start the grooming process in childhood to get it used to it.
While both Poodles and Maltese are very loving and affectionate dogs, the Maltese has a tendency to become overly assertive and reactive in certain situations, and may nip if provoked. On the other hand, the Poodle, particularly the Miniature, has a milder temperament and is far more tolerant, and this tends to shine through.

Expect this puppy to be lively, inquisitive and eager to play. They make an exceptional family pet as they enjoy socialization and children.

We have had our pup ‘Buddy’ for about a week and he is wonderful. The puppy selection and pick up experience from Premier Pups was great... organized, professional, clean and informative. I was so impressed, that I have purchased and will be picking up another pup for our family soon. - Thanks Premier Pups!
My husband and I have had Gino for about a week now. We LOVE him to death! He is a great dog full of love and lots of energy! We are so happy we found him. Premiere pups have a great staff and they really care about their puppies. I would recommend anyone to get a puppy from them!
Barley is our first dog ever and he has been one of the best decisions we have ever made. He is almost 7 months old and we still can't get enough of him. He has been healthy and adjusted well to a household with two crazy kids. Ryan was so helpful when we first brought Barley home as he wasn't really eating. Slowly but surely following Ryan's advice Barley got back on track, however we do feed him mostly fresh meat and apples!! Very spoiled!!! Loved working with Premier Pups and would do it again in a heartbeat!! Thank you!!
she's perfect and has a little attitude but overall she’s very good shes my dream dog she’s 5 months now and weighs 6 pounds so happy to have her <3
I was hesitant to buy a puppy but after failing to get a foster dog for months I decided to make the risky decision to purchase online. We got Nube right after we were quarantined for COVID-19 and it has been the best decision I’ve made. Staying home with him has made our relationship extremely special, the process of getting him was easy and with a lot of communication. The next day I got him I took him to the vet He kept scratching his ears snd shaking his head and was informed he had an ear infection, I immediately got in contact with premier pups and they apologized and reimbursed what I had spent at the vet’s office. I have recommended so many people to buy from this site and whoever has bought from them are just as pleased as I am. If I ever decide to buy another adorable puppy I know exactly the place to go!!
We adopted Odin a few weeks ago from Premier Pups. We started with a FaceTime Interview which was a wonderful way to view the puppies with out being onsite. Once we decided on proceeding with the adoption , we drove 400 miles to pick him up. The facility was clean and the staff onsite was so friendly and helpful. They made the process easy. They also helped us with tips to travel with the puppy and sent home a starter kit to help him transition. We would highly recommend premier pups to anyone who is looking to adopt that special puppy!
I was really frightened about purchasing a puppy on the internet but it has turned out to be an amazing experience with Premier Pups and truly exceeded my expectations. My puppy Oscar is absolutely beautiful, playful and sweet...and very precocious! Wherever I take him in New York City I feel like I am with a celebrity. People just go wild over him because he is soooo adorable and lovable! I would highly recommend this service to anyone.
We were looking for a maltipoo and came across Premier Pups. The staff was extremely helpful and answered all of my questions. When our puppy arrived, she was clean and happy. I took her to the vet and he said she was a very healthy puppy! We’ve had her for less than a week but she has adjusted very well. I love the fact that Premier Pups has called to check up on the puppy. I highly recommend Premier Pups to anyone looking for a healthy and beautiful puppy.
Our little guy just celebrated his first birthday on 8/14/20 and is as happy and healthy as ever. From start to finish, my experience with Premier Pups was fantastic. Hudson is the first dog I have ever bought for myself, so understandably I had an obnoxious amount of questions for the staff in the weeks leading up to his availability. The staff, however, answered each one quickly and thoroughly. As soon as I can convince my husband that Hudson needs a sibling, I will definitely use Premier Pups again!
Marley became apart of our family last Fall and he has brought us (especially me) so much joy! He is a playful puppy but super smart!!! He loves to go for long walks...we walk 2 miles and he hangs in there like a trooper! I’m considering getting Marley a fury companion?? if so we will definitely get him/her from Premier Pups. Many thanks for such an awesome doggie!
