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: 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: Barley
Breed: Maltipoo
Client: Deanna Herold
Loc: Worthington, Ohio

Barley is our first dog ever and he has been one of the best decisions we have ever made. He is almost 7 months old and we still can't get enough of him. He has been healthy and adjusted well to a household with two crazy kids. Ryan was so helpful when we first brought Barley home as he wasn't really eating. Slowly but surely following Ryan's advice Barley got back on track, however we do feed him mostly fresh meat and apples!! Very spoiled!!! Loved working with Premier Pups and would do it again in a heartbeat!! Thank you!!

Breed: Maltipoo
Client: Kiley Johnson
Loc: Venice, Florida

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!

Name: Lily - Used to Sugar
Breed: Maltipoo
Client: Carmelita Foster
Loc: Fort Washington MD

I purchased Sugar, now Lily, over three years ago. The experience was great and easy. Amazing customer service. Lily is sweetest dog ever , when she was received and even now, she stopped strangers in their tracks wanting to pet and okay with her because she was so adorably small. She was 15 oz when purchased and now he is 4lbs. I’m looking to purchase another puppy and immediately came back to premier pup, then suddenly realized I never provided a review of my great experience.

Loc: Westwood, MA

Yesterday was the one year anniversary when Sugar (formerly Fallon) came into our lives. And we couldn’t be happier. After doing a great deal of research on the breed we wanted (Maltipoo) my wife and I searched for the best place to find one. We came upon Premier Pups and were overjoyed. PP was very professional and extremely helpful and informative in explaining the process. We picked up our Sugar at the airport in Boston and our lives have never been the same since. She is the most loving and friendly puppy that we have ever seen…and smart too. We will be forever grateful we found you.

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!
