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.

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 adopted Oscar almost a year ago. He is an absolute joy and a fortunate addition to my family! He is so beautiful sweet and lovable! Every time I take him out in New York City, I feel like I am with a celebrity... everyone falls in love with him!
We could not be happier with the newest member of our family. We agonized over the decision to get a dog for several years. Premier Pups has been incredibly professional, thorough and a sincere pleasure to deal with. Dalton is a great addition to our family and we could not be happier or more appreciative of Premier Pups. Cannot recommend them highly enough.
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
My tiny fur baby just celebrated his first birthday. What a sweet little guy in your lives.
I have a 1 year old boy Cavapoo, a 10 month old Rescue Chihuahua mix (belongs to my daughter) and I was looking for a little girl to complete my pet family. Having almost been scammed twice, I was skeptical. I read everything on the site, checked the BBB and watched the videos on the site and in Vimeo as well as called and spoke to Customer Care to ask questions. I was extremely surprised at all the information this site offers as well as the excellent Customer Care I received. The process was easy and informative. Once I completely read all of the FAQ's, I really didn't have any other questions as they were basically all answered. The best part was searching through all the great photos of all the adorable faces for the one that spoke to my heart. When I saw Carmen, I just knew she was the one! I loved her the moment I saw her! I was so afraid she would be sold before I could reserve her that I can't even remember the process I went through too clearly. It was the fastest purchase I have ever done! LOL!! The days went by feeling like years and then that day came. I love the fact that she was being driven to me. When they handed her to me, I barely heard anything the gentleman said to me. It was a good thing they have the directions in the bag they give you as well as all the e-mails they send with the same info. Premier Pups, in my opinion, is Amazing! I love the staff as they were so patient with me with my questions. The website is Fantastic. I couldn't be happier with my experience! If I could change anything, it would have been to have had the time to drive over there and experience everything in person!! Lexie, is adorable, energetic and !! Everyone falls in love with her when they see her!! I am so grateful to have come across this site and I would recommend Premier Pups to everyone looking for that special little one to complete their family!! Thank you Premier Pups, my heart is overjoyed!!
It has been three weeks since we picked up Bia (Bliss) from the airport and I as well as my family can say we are pleased, happy and excited with her. She has adjusted well to being a member of our family and the information, assistance and phone calls provided by premier pups has been amazing in ensuring that we adjusted as well to her. Our vet has given her a clean bill of health and she has mastered the pup pee poo palace. My experience with premier pups has been again so amazing and I would recommend them over and over again!
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!!
Brought Dolly home 2 years ago this Thanksgiving! She is the sweetest fur baby and I tell everyone how amazing Premier Pups facility, and staff was when we came to get our girl. We will definitely be back for Dolly’s little brother or sister :) highly recommended!!
We received our adorable most loving little guy Ace (Formerly known as Peyton) on 12/2/2018 it's only been a week and I cannot tell you how loved he is and how much JOY he has brought into our home. We are beyond excited to share our Christmas this year with the new addition to our family. The process was amazing and I just want to thank PremierPups. Crystal <3
