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.

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.

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.
I don’t know what life was like before my little fur baby. Premier Pups made the scary process of getting a puppy online seamless. They sent my little guy with very clear directions, and everything he needed. When I picked him up he was clean, loving and ready to come home with me! Premier Pups called and texted me to check up on us and really went the extra mile. I am so happy with this process and would absolutely use Premier Pups again!
I bought a Maltipoo puppy by the name of Joyce. She's so full of energy and loves everyone. They were very helpful with my little girl moving and settling in. I couldnt be more grateful with my choice and the smooth process Premier Pups provided. I would definitely recommend purchasing your bundle of joy from Premier Pups!
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!!
I purchased Sugar, now Lily, over three years ago. The experience was great and easy. Amazing customer service. Lily is sweetest dog ever , when she was received and even now, she stopped strangers in their tracks wanting to pet and okay with her because she was so adorably small. She was 15 oz when purchased and now he is 4lbs. I’m looking to purchase another puppy and immediately came back to premier pup, then suddenly realized I never provided a review of my great experience.
As a first time pet family, buying a puppy was a pretty big deal. Lucky for us Premier Pups made the process very easy! From helping us choose a specific breed based on our lifestyle to letting us know what to expect in the days, weeks , & months after bringing our puppy home… They were extremely helpful in every aspect of the process. 9 months later, and we can’t imagine our lives without our Maltipoo...Pixie:-)
I purchased Nico (formerly Gavin) from Premier Pups in November, and absolutely adore my new best friend! The staff was amazing and made sure to check in with me throughout the entire process. They were always available to answer any questions I had. I will always recommend Premier Pups to anyone in the market for a new family member.
We drove to Premier Pups from Chicago IL. The staff at premier made us feel comfortable with Jagger and helped us help him adjust to his new home and family. Jagger basically potty trained himself so that was also amazing. Me and my family love Our Jagger and will definitely be coming back to Premier Pups for our next puppy!!!
We love our new maltipoo puppy Palmer! What a great experience we had purchasing her. Highly recommend!
After lots of research we decided to get our Maltipoo pup, Yuki (formally Kashmere) from Premier Pups in Oct 2019. Great service and care! This is our first puppy and they provided a lot of info and support for our pup. Yuki flew from OH to us in MN and did amazing when we picked her up at Delta cargo. Delta called us when she was ready to be picked up. She was just under 2 lbs. did well on the flight. She is so playful, sweet, loving and gentle. She ate her kibbles right away when she arrived at home. We trained her on the potty pad in 2 days and did well during crate training. No crying only woke us up to potty and sometimes play for a little bit lol. Never pee or poop in her crate. We continued with royal canine food as recommended by Premier and Yuki has not had any GI issues. Poops solid since day one! I did a DNA test for fun and health and Yuki is 100% Maltipoo! I’ve seen so many people being told they were sold a Maltipoo but ends up being a mixed pup only. Yuki turned 1 year old in August 2020 and is healthy, so calm and sweet. She does well with my rough, naughty 7 year old daughter! Yuki has no separation anxiety. We socialize/exposed to lots of noises as soon as we got her per the info/sites recommended by Premier. Yuki only started barking at our door when she was 8 months but we trained her right away not to. She still tries sometimes but knows it’s a no no. She thinks she a big dog hehe. Yuki does well on walks. No barks at all even when other dogs are barking at her from across the street she just looks at them and then moves on. She loves people and other dogs of all sizes. We took her to our neighborhood park (pre COVID) and about 8-9 kids swarmed around her taking turns holding and playing/petting her. Yuki was in heaven. She just loves playing so much! Yuki is very heathy. So far only sick vet visit is for 1 ear infection due to water in her ears. She is fully grown now at 5 lbs and 4 oz. right on per Premier’s estimate (5-7lbs). How big was important to our family because of our lifestyle. She’s so perfect and such an amazing dog! This has to do with great breeders! Thanks Premier Pups!
