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.

Temperament

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.

Family and Companionship

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.

Exercise

Though designed for indoor life, your new puppy will still need daily exercise to stay healthy, happy and out of mischief. The have lots of energy and if not burned in a constructive manor can result in destructive behavior. Taking short walks and both indoor and outdoor play sessions are perfect for this small pup. 

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.

Name: Chex / Odin
Breed: Maltipoo
Client: Amy Del Muro
Loc: St Charles

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!

Name: Wrigley (formerly Wade)
Breed: Maltipoo
Client: Sheldon Gremillion
Loc: Baton Rouge, LA

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!

Name: Lexie (previously Carmen)
Breed: Maltipoo
Client: Tanisha Collazo
Loc: Bronx, N.Y.

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!!

Name: Marli (previously 'Rita')
Breed: Maltipoo
Client: Troy and Kelley Woods
Loc: Washington, D.C.

I have to say, when we first started looking for a puppy for our family I didn't know how extensive and exhausting it would be. We found some puppies but always felt unsettled with either the breeder or company. I came across Premier Pups in my search, but initially bypassed due to the the distance. However, after seeing an amazing review on YouTube and then looking at all of the other reviews online, I started to get 'that feeling' of excitement. I then looked for a dog on their site and came upon 'Rita' the maltipoo. She was so unique looking for her mix, and I just knew she was the one. Even though it was above our price point, Premier Pups made this decision easy! The were prompt in answering questions, helped us with selection and gave us the assurance that we were looking for. Even when we decided to have her shipped, she was flown in, in style. From the time of her preparation and departure to when she arrived with all of her supplies and info, I can not tell you how 5 star the experience felt.. We are beyond pleased and know she was EXACTLY for us... We have recommended everyone to Premier Pups! Just amazing!

Name: Was alpine now Winston
Breed: Maltipoo
Client: Sydney Davis
Loc: Irvine, CA

I adopted Alpine (now Winston) three weeks ago from premier pups and I couldn’t be happier! This is my very first dog and I had no idea what to expect but thrilled I went with premier pups. They checked in with us multiple times after he arrived to us and got back to me within seconds if I had any questions. Which was so comforting to me with my first fur baby! We went to the vet a week after he came home to us and the vet said how happy, energetic, and extremely healthy he was! He is just the cutest, sweetest, funniest little guy I’ve ever met and I can’t imagine my life without him. If you are debating on getting a dog from premier pups, this is your sign! Do it, do it now! You won’t regret it, I know I didn’t!!

Name: Nube (birth name Adolfo)
Breed: Maltipoo
Client: Rosa Fermin
Loc: NY

I was hesitant to buy a puppy but after failing to get a foster dog for months I decided to make the risky decision to purchase online. We got Nube right after we were quarantined for COVID-19 and it has been the best decision I’ve made. Staying home with him has made our relationship extremely special, the process of getting him was easy and with a lot of communication. The next day I got him I took him to the vet He kept scratching his ears snd shaking his head and was informed he had an ear infection, I immediately got in contact with premier pups and they apologized and reimbursed what I had spent at the vet’s office. I have recommended so many people to buy from this site and whoever has bought from them are just as pleased as I am. If I ever decide to buy another adorable puppy I know exactly the place to go!!
