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.

This quintessential companion dog, adores attention and loves to cuddle, and should never be forced to spend long periods alone, as it is prone to separation anxiety. Expect this puppy to be lively, inquisitive and eager to play. They make an exceptional family pet as they enjoy socialization and children.

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.

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 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.
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 were so exited to pick up Slugger (previously Chadwick). Everything went perfectly and we loved him from the moment we met him. We were provided with all instructions needed and everything went smoothly. I would recommend Premier Pups to anyone looking for a new puppy. They even called the next day to make sure everything was fine. They are professional, reliable and their puppies are adorable!
Marley became apart of our family last Fall and he has brought us (especially me) so much joy! He is a playful puppy but super smart!!! He loves to go for long walks...we walk 2 miles and he hangs in there like a trooper! I’m considering getting Marley a fury companion?? if so we will definitely get him/her from Premier Pups. Many thanks for such an awesome doggie!
We bought our puppy for our grandmother, he is an absolute DOLL!! So cute and friendly, good with dogs and kids :) Thank you Premier for such a wonderful dog! Would HIGHLY recommend Premier Pups to anybody looking for a new furry friend!!
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 ??
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!!!
