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.

I got Winnie back in December ‘20 and she’s become my literal new best friend! She’s so sweet, loyal and fun and I wouldn’t trade her for the world. Premier pups couldn’t have been more supportive for her transition period into my home. Overall such a great experience!
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 purchased our puppy almost a year ago and couldn’t be happier! Sprinkles is a great addition to our family and is great with my children. The process of purchasing her from Premier Pups was amazing and we highly recommend buying a puppy from here. We were nervous about buying a puppy online and flying her to NJ but everything was fine. She was super clean and healthy! Thank you Premier Pups!
Kashmere was hand delivered to us right before Christmas and we had an incredible experience with premier pups both before and after sale. I contacted them after almost having fallen victim to breeding mills and explained my concerns etc and they were so professional and available to answer my questions and to help me with selecting Kashmere and the entire process. She is such a wonderful addition to our family. From when she first came to us she bonded, is playful and confident and you can tell that her first 8 weeks of life were nurturing. I honestly will not consider buying a puppy anywhere else. A puppy is a family member and aside from the economic costs, their are the social risks of introducing a bad situation to your family which we almost fell for. With premier pups, I know that I have a healthy puppy from responsibile breeders who looked out for her best interests and stand behind their guarantee. Thank you premier pups!
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!
We adopted Nico in May 2020 during the pandemic. Premier Pups drove him from Ohio to us in Massachusetts and we couldn’t of been happier with him. Any questions we had were quickly answered and they called to check on him a few days after he arrived. He loves to play and absolutely loves to be around people!
For years I have wanted a small puppy, but in the past I have been quick to buy and there were issues with the breeding which caused health issues. My first mistake was I should have done my research. So in late March of this year I set out to do just that. I did my research called local facilities and breeders and just wasn't impressed. I furthered my research and came across premier pups at first I was a little skeptical as I would have to pay in full and hope I like the puppy, I was also a little concerned since the puppy would be flown in. After reading reviews and doing my research I fell in love with premier pups. They answered any question I had even if I called 15X a day. As many know a lot of states have been in lockdown due to COVID-19 this worried me even more because I had already purchased her and was scared I wouldn't receive her, But Mike and Lacie went above and beyond and flew his own jet in to deliver our puppies. I would recommend premier pups especially if you have had a bad experience in the past with buying a puppy. Hands down best puppy facility ever, I will never buy from anyone except them! Thank you all for your hard work!
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!
This king has arrived and now is a part of a family! Leo (previously known as Cheerio) was received by two loved ones a few days ago. He is just amazing! We love him soo much! Leo is always ready to play, eat, and sleep, exactly like his new parents?? welcome to the family, Leo!
We adopted Odin a few weeks ago from Premier Pups. We started with a FaceTime Interview which was a wonderful way to view the puppies with out being onsite. Once we decided on proceeding with the adoption , we drove 400 miles to pick him up. The facility was clean and the staff onsite was so friendly and helpful. They made the process easy. They also helped us with tips to travel with the puppy and sent home a starter kit to help him transition. We would highly recommend premier pups to anyone who is looking to adopt that special puppy!
