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.
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.

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!
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!!!
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 ??
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.
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!
We are very,very happy with BENJAMIN it's the cutest pup every. We love him since we saw his picture.
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.
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 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.
