Maltese Quick Facts
- Maltese dogs originated in Malta, which is a small island in Italy, which is where they get their name.
- These pups were the creme de la creme of dog breeds, so they were commonly associated with opulence and sophistication. In fact, it’s been reported that Maltese puppies for sale were valued at the equivalence of $2,000 in the 1500’s!
- They are considered to be hypoallergenic, so they make great dogs for people with allergies.
- Many Maltese puppies for sale are purchased with the intent of becoming therapy dogs. They excel at being pet companions and providing emotional support.
- Maltese dogs are infamous for being picky eaters. Perhaps this dates back to the time when they were fed with silver spoons!

Maltese Puppy Personalities
As we previously mentioned, Maltese puppies are typically playful, gentle, loving, and energetic. They are also really obedient and quite intelligent. Their playfulness extends into their adult years so it’s not just a puppy thing! They adore humans and like to be very close to them, underfoot actually and in your arms or lap. Because of their neediness, they are prone to separation anxiety. You can help to avoid this, however, with crate training very early on when you bring home your Maltese puppies for sale.
Maltese dogs are typically great family dogs and are good with older children. Be mindful of them around smaller children as they can sometimes be a bit snappy and nippy. Early socialization will “nip” this in the bud!
Since they are such people pleasers, you’ll find that Maltese puppies can be trained fairly well and pick up new tricks rather easily. House training them will take a bit more patience on your end, but as we said crate training can help with separation anxiety but very well with house training them, too.
