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.
Family and Companionship
This quintessential companion dog, adores attention and loves to cuddle, and should never be forced to spend long periods alone, as it is prone to separation anxiety. Expect this puppy to be lively, inquisitive and eager to play. They make an exceptional family pet as they enjoy socialization and children.
Though designed for indoor life, your new puppy will still need daily exercise to stay healthy, happy and out of mischief.

Training and Socialization
Known for their intelligence, affection, sociability and loyalty, these dogs become very attached to their owners. This in combination of its inherited intelligence of the Poodle and the sweetness of the Maltese that makes training simple as they are eager to please. Early socialization is highly recommended in order for these dogs to interact with different people, pets and places. Be sure to use positive reinforcement tactics such as food rewards, play and praise.

They love to hear themselves bark! This makes for an excellent watch dog and will alert you of anything suspicious. Their barking can be controlled if nipped in the bud at an early age through proper training and socialization.
Never leave your Maltipoo outside unattended. Although they are active and should receive daily walks they are best left indoors. Their small size makes them an easier target for predators.
The average lifespan is between 12 to 16 years.
Baths should be given every 3 weeks. Any more than this can cause their skin to become very dry and flaky.
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.
We had been looking to add a pup to our family for quite a while and when we saw Barkley we knew we had to have him. Premier Pups delievered beyond our expectations and we could not be happier with our baby boy!!
We got this little cutie June of 2018. He will be a year in just a few days! There's so much I can say about our experience with Premier Pups. To start off, they are SO informative. They are extremely helpful through the entire process. Even after you bring your puppy home, they call you multiple times to make sure he is settling in okay, adjusting and they just overall give the best help and advice. I couldn't have been happier with the entire process. Our little Caesar has been a wonderful addition to our family! He is so full of energy yet so loving and calm. We were first time doggy parents so we were very nervous and had no idea what we were doing! Premier Pups definitely helped us through those first couple of weeks. We are always saying we need to get him a friend. 100% no question, we would come back to Premier Pups! All such a great experience and in the end we have a pretty amazing puppy that we love to pieces!
I am so thankful that I found Premier Pups (by accident)! I was a little skeptical purchasing a puppy online, but after days of looking at the pups on the website and reading the reviews, as well as looking at a few videos on YouTube from people who purchased, and the icing on the cake was having a Face Time video with Marley. I was in love! I thought about driving to Ohio to pick him up, but I wasn't excited about a 12hr round trip drive. So after reading the reviews from people who had their pup flown to them, I thought I would do the same. It was easy pezy...the staff at Premier Pups provided the flight information and tracked Marley's flight. He arrived and he was perfectly fine. He's had his first vet check and they said he's healthy. He's the smartest dog in the world...he's been going to the bathroom outside from day 1! He started puppy training 3 weeks ago and is catching on very fast. Everyone who meets him falls in love. In closing this is a funny...I purchased a bottle of shampoo, and after getting home, I realized that the my Marley looks like the dog on the bottle...I said, "Marley you can be a model!" LOL! Thanks Premier Pups for blessing our family with such a wonderful fur baby!!
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
Rhythm brings so much happiness to my family! Everyone loves her and says she looks like a teddy bear. Rhythm was an eight week old puppy when I received her. Premier pups staff was amazing! I drove to Lexington to pick her up form the airport and it was a great experience. I highly recommend Premier pups to anyone who is looking to get a precious puppy. It's can be a gamble getting a puppy online but Premier Pups is reputable.
My wonderful husband surprised me on my birthday 3 years ago with our precious maltipoo. She was only 1.8 pounds and it was love at first sight! She works as a therapy dog in my counseling practice and brings joy and peace to many clients every day! We have referred dozens of people to your business in our rural area. We have been very satisfied with our baby girl! Thank you!
As first time dog owners we can’t thank Premier Pups for a better experience! From answering all our numerous questions to the ease of transport to the support and follow-up once our wonderful pup arrived, everything was outstanding. We just adore our sweet, fun-loving Maltipoo Georgia! At 9 months she’s now 8.5 pounds of fluffy love ??
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!
I am loving my little Maltipoo we named Teddy. He made the airline flight in great shape and has gained a pound in the month we have had him. He sleeps over night in his crate from 11:00 pm to 6:30 am without a peep. He loves to play fetch as often as he can. What a sweetie pie.
