Everything You Need to Know About Maltese Puppies

At Princess Puppies, we have just had a litter of Maltese puppies that are for sale on our website and going fast! We know these little guys and girls can melt your heart, but there are a few things to keep in mind before adopting a Maltese puppy for the first time – so we put together this quick guide to help you decide if this dog is right for you.

Maltese Dogs Live a Long Time

Most Maltese dogs live well over a decade – 15 or more years is not unheard of at all. If you adopt one of our cute little Maltese puppies for sale, you’re making a long commitment.

Maltese Puppies Love People

If you are expecting to get a cute little dog that will mostly just hang out while you go about your life, think again. Maltese dogs are not yappy or loud by any means, but they do very much like to be with you. They have plenty of energy and they are very sweet. This means that they want to spend time with you and that they love to be at the very center of whatever is happening in the home.

Maltese Puppies Need Supervision

Perhaps because they are just so friendly, Maltese dogs don’t seem to know the meaning of the word fear. If they get out into the yard off the leash, they are very likely to go exploring. The problem is that they are so small, they are good targets for larger dogs, wild coyotes, and so on. Keep an eye on your brave little pooch!

You Do Have to Groom Them

Many people love the idea of a Maltese because they are hypoallergenic. But that doesn’t mean they are a low maintenance dog when it comes to grooming. They have a long coat that needs to be brushed every day to keep it free of tangles, and they’ll also need regular trims. Their hair is very silky, which means it knots very easily.

Exercise is a Must

Finally, while Maltese are very good lap dogs, they do also need exercise. They need at least a walk every day, and probably also some time to run around a safe outdoor space to get rid of the energy they always have stored up.

If all of this sounds like a dog that would fit right into your daily life, please take a look at our Maltese puppies for sale!

    My baby Liberty is almost 1. I bought her last October and she has been the light of my life. Her personality is so sweet and she is spoiled rotten. Princess Puppies was very accommodating when I inquired about their puppies and meeting me on my time schedule. I could not be a happier fur mom. Liberty Pearl 7-4-17.

    We purchased “Jessie” almost 3 years ago. We named her Charley. She is the sweetest, FUNNIEST little Pom-a-Poo! She loves people and everyone loves her. She’s smart and is the apple of our eye. When we lost our poodle of 18 years, we were heartbroken. Charley has filled our home with laughter and love. Thank you, Princess Puppies and Brittany for raising such wonderful friends! ❤️ Tracy
