8 pound Maltese
by: Susan

Your little girl is on the high end of the weight for Maltese but as long as she gets plenty of exercise she is fine. There is a difference between over-weight and just big, My male Maltese is 9+ pounds at almost a year. It seems somewhere along the line Maltese are getting a bit bigger. Depends on their breeding and genetics. People that want the little tiny ones are having to pay really top dollar to get them. I prefer my baby the way he is as I don't have to worry quite so much about him getting hurt. Enjoy her and don't worry about her size unless she gets "over-weight".

Look at those spots!

My baby is 9wks now and is about .89 lbs.(yeah, not even a pound yet) she's a Maltichi.

I might just be confused, but the chart was ???? for me.

However, if I do the doubling thing, then I think she will be just under the 4lb mark.

She is pretty tiny now, so no telling.
Teakah and my Irish Wolfhound are getting to be good friends now, along with our Schnausador.

We're still guessing on how the fur will turn out, but she's a real cutie.

Molly

At 5 1/2 weeks, my Maltese puppy Molly weighs 24oz. According to the Maltese puppy weight chart she will probably be around 6lbs when fully grown. This is the perfect size for a Maltese!

Is Maltese Underweight - Tucker

After adopting Tucker and taking him to the vet for a check up he weighs 8lbs. According to what I've read, that is about all he should weigh full grown however, he is very skinny and I can feel his ribs. I thought he was underweight but now I'm not sure.

Puppy Weight Chart - Bitsy

by Bitsys Mom

Bitsy - 9 wk Morkie

Bitsy - 9 wk Morkie

My very small Morkie puppy was finally able to leave her mom and come home!I must say, she's adorable! Probably the cutest puppy I've ever had and so well behaved - such a great personality. She's 9-10 wks old and weighs 20oz (1.4 lbs). Her mother was a 4lb Maltese and dad was a 3lb Yorkie - both great quality. She was the smallest in the litter.

The breeder told me she'll stay under 4lbs. According to your puppy weight chart and others - she should be about 3.5 lbs.

Here's a picture of Bitsy... :)

Maltese Weight - Lucy

by Jessi
(New Jersey)

Lucy is 11.5 lbs... I thought (and still think) she is perfect, but when I took my Maltese to the vet he told me "she lost her bikini waist" then went on to tell me how much a pound or two impacts a dog as small as her. I felt so bad because I had no clue. I thought my Maltese's weight was fine!

Lucy's Mom NEW
by: Anonymous

My female Maltese is around 8 lbs. She is almost 11 months. I got her at 11 weeks and the Vet said it depends on her parents. She doesn't eat a lot but I don't know about her parents. To me she is perfect. She was 2.2 lbs when I got her....I was so afraid she would get under my feet.

Bikini Waist?! lol
by: Jeri

I think it's hard to know how much a dog should weigh. My sister has a german shepherd and she always asked her vet if he was overweight...to which the vet replied.....No, he's fine. That is until he starting having hip problems at age 6...then the vet said he needs to loose 30 lbs. I think that is terrible....I mean, he didn't gain those lbs. overnight and she DID always asked about the dogs weight too. Negligence on the vets part...don't you think? Is Lucy a pure bred Maltese or mixed? Just wondering, cause my Ollie is half Maltese and half Shih tzu which makes for a larger dog than a pure Maltese. Still, I sometimes wonder if he's too big too. Though I give him what the package says......1 cup per day (half in the morning and half late afternoon. I think it may depend on how much activity they get don't you? Ollie has his bursts in the house....and very active when he gets to go out...but the rest of the time he's a couch potato..lol He weighs 16 lbs.....half of which is fur I think:) Age is a factor too, I think. How old is Lucy? Ollie is 18 months old. Anyway, good luck with Lucy! I'd love to see her picture too!

Maltese Puppy Niko

by Claudette
(Ontario Canada)



My puppy Niko is now 8 months and weigh 10.5 lbs. At 6 months old he already weighted 8.5 lb. When I bought him I was sure I would have a small little Maltese between 5 to 6 lbs... what a surprise today to see my little puppy is over 10 pounds. But hey, we love him to pieces, he is adorable and so sweet and smart and very cuddly... so now his weight does not matter to me anymore!!!

Love weight and tear stain
by: Claudette

Hi, long time since I wrote anything, my puppy is now 18 months old and at his maximum 13 pounds, he is a pleasure to have around, as for the tear stain, no need for anything cause he is doing really great with no stain...
Tomorrow June 7th, I will be taking NIko to the HILLTOP K-9 Agility class...he will enjoy doing all the running, he is very obedient and loves other dogs, I know he will love the activities, he is full of energy and that will do him good. Too bad we cannot add more photos on with our comments cause I would love to show you how my Niko has grown...
Thanks for the advice on the antibiotic for tear stain, I was told it is not good to let them on the pills too long, not sure if it is true...

Love weight and tear stains
by: Donna

Hi my Lily is over 10 lbs too. You are right, it does not matter at all. She did have tear stains. Our vet suggested antibiotics. The tear stains never came back. You may want to ask you vet about this.

About little Niko
by: Claudette

Hi again,
Well, I wish we could add more photos on this post...My little Niko is now 11 months and weighs 11.5 pounds, yes, a huge surprise but let me tell you he is worth the 11.5 pounds, he learns so much and so fast, our house would be so sad without his presence around...He is so lovable and friendly and loves everybody, we could not have asked for a better dog...he loves to be on my lap, watches television with me and loves to watch videos, sometimes we think he understand everything......ha.

Every morning and night Niko and I have our bonding moments which is while practicing his little tricks we do the brushing and eyes, ears and teeth clean, he never try to stop me...must say I have started with him when he was a tiny little puppy so now he is accustomed to it...Of course the fact that they love attention makes the grooming so much better.....
Thanks for listening and hope you enjoy your little Maltese as much as I enjoy mine....I would love to add photos so anyone knows how we can do that"???

apple cider vinegar
by: Claudette

Thank you so much re: apple cider vinegar, I appreciate that you took the time to let us know Maltese Lovers about how to use it as well...I will definitely give it a try, the only way to find out if it will work for my little Niko.
Do enjoy your little puppy as I do love mine as well....they are so loving and adorable.
Have a good Fall Seasons.

Tear stain
by: Alesa Cicilia

I bought my little Lexi at 8 weeks and she already had terrible tear stains (honestly brick red tear stains) and I was reading up on how to get rid of them I was browsing through different forums and I read to add 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to the drinking water which I did and in less than a month the new hair was growing out with no tear stains and now her face is completely white no tear stains at all.
now I only add the vinegar once every week or when I do remember for maintenance so it don't recur but what the Braggs apple cider vinegar does is balance the PH level in the dog killing the bacteria and preventing the tear stains.
now Lexi is 5 months and 2 weeks and two days.

Maltese Puppy Niko.
by: Claudette

Just a little update, my little Niko has not gain anymore weight since I changed his food from Chicken to a company ACANA, great food they have for dogs that have chicken allergies, I choosed the pork & buttersquash, no grain, no corn nor soya...it's been 4 weeks now and he stayed at his 10.5 lbs since the day I did the change...At 9 months in two days he is such a loving and cuddly puppy and friendly and fearless of any dogs, he tease them to play which worry me some cause we don't always know how the other dog will react....he loves attention, lets me brush him and cut his hair without any fuss...Wish I could add mores photos on this message. Anyway, take care and keep loving your sweet loving pet.

Re: Too cute for words......
by: Claudette

I have to say thank you for your kind words re: my little Niko...at the same time I wanted to tell the lady that was asking about Tear staining, I believe lots and maybe I should say most Maltese owner could relate to the problem of Tears staining...not so pleasant but if this could help you I found a wonderful product call EYE ENVY, I use it on my Niko every morning and night when doing his regular brushing, I call it doing "our bonding", haha...
Anyway, the product is expensive but very good and it works as you see Niko's eyes....gradually it gets lighter and lighter to a point where I could be a whole week without using it....then during his bath time I also use a product from SPA TROPICAL for stear stain, I apply it on the stain with a tiny tootbrush, I delicately apply it and leave on 4 minutes while I shampoo him....and it works wonders...Good luck, I have no doubt it will work, just patience is all you need with the product...

Gorgeous Maltese
by: Ava

Your not so little Maltese is absolutely gorgeous!! Such a lovely face, perfect pure white colour and an excellent coat. You may have wanted him smaller but I think his size is ideal. We have a Maltese girl and she is just under 5lbs and I always worry about how fragile she is. Don't Maltese have just the best personalities??!!

Too cute for words

What a BEAUTIFUL Maltese. Her body conformation is unbelievable. LOVE her short stocky look, adorable face and beautiful coat. LOVE the way you have her cut. Too cute. I have 4.5 mo. old Morkie, mostly white with tan ears and some tan spots. Coat is not too thick right but hoping that it will thicken when he matures.

What a PRECIOUS dog!!! I have a 4.5 mo. old Morkie parti-color. Mostly white with tan ears and some tan spots on his body. I LOVE the coat on your Niko. My Toby's hair is not too thick right now. I am so hoping that his coat turns out similar to your Niko. Mom is a Maltese and Dad is a Yorkie but I do not have any pics. He is wonderful regardless of his coat. I am having a problem with eye staining and am working on that. Have you encountered that problem?

Gizmo is very funny, and loving but has mood swings and sometimes eats his poop...

He is 5 months old now and I really do not want him to grow anymore :-(
