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.

Between 2-3 months old it is recommended to free-feed a puppy. This means that fresh food should be available to the puppy at all times.

General guidelines for feeding a Maltipoo are: • 2 to 4 lbs. 1/3 to 1/2 cups per day. • 5 to 8 lbs. 1/2 to 3/4 cups per day. • 8 to 10 lb. adult = 1/2 to 3/4 cups per day. • 10 to 12 lb. adult = 3/4 to 1 cup per day. • 13 to 16 lb. adult = 1 to 1 and 1/4 cups per day.
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.
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.
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!
I was hesitant to buy a dog online after a previous experience with a breeder from another channel. After reading many positive reviews on Premier Pup, the online Q&As, and speaking with Premier Pup, I felt reassured this was the best way to get our pup and it was. We adopted Hadley in February of 2020 and renamed her Millie. We just celebrated her 1st birthday and are happy to report that she is a very healthy and happy dog. Millie is a great addition to our family. I will only consider buying a pet through Premier Pup.
I got Lucas on Feb 12 2020 he’s literally the most sweetest precious dog ever he’s so full of energy I cannot imagine my life without him. it’s funny because when I get home from work I feel like we’re both so excited to see each other lol
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 our puppy through premier pups and I was very satisfied with my purchased. My puppy was shipped to me the following day and they helped me through the process of getting her adjusted to her new home. Healthy puppy! We are very much in love with her. She is now three months and loves her new home and family
We got Wrigley (Wade) a couple years ago, and we LOVE him. Not the entire family loves animals, but Wrigley has changed their opinion. He never barks, was potty trained in less than a week, and is the cutest little thing. He will do literally whatever you want, whether it be to snuggle or play and run around. Wrigs is the best Christmas present in the world, and is like the 7th member of the family. He goes everywhere we go, and we are always getting stopped by passing strangers for them to pet him and visit. He doesn’t mind it at all, and in fact loves getting the attention. We definitely think that Premier Pups was the best choice, and we wouldn’t trade Wrigley for the world!
We have been searching for a puppy for quite some time. We wanted the Percy pup to our family. I have stumbled accross many webpages that sold puppies and were skeptical about the process. After reading reviews we decided to go for it. We found Kingston and decided to put an offer in. From that day forward we have had outstanding support from premier pups. From purchasing him, to receiving him, and care for him after arrival. It’s been an amazing experience. We are so excited to have Kingston home with us and our family couldn’t be happier! It’s been an exciting first week for all of us and we’re even looking into getting another one! I will keep you all updated! Thank you premier pups!
Our family is so in love with Aspen now known as Leah. Our kids always wanted to get a puppy but we weren’t planning on getting one until we just thought of getting one during Covid. We looked everywhere and came across Premier Pups and we fell in love with all their pups. We’ve had Leah for about 5 weeks now and she has brought so much joy to our family and she has adjusted so well and quick into our family. We’re so happy that we got her through Premier Pups, they are so caring and friendly and we would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a puppy.
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!
