Maltese Teacup Traits

  • Fragile - since teacup Maltese dogs are bred to be tiny, they are also very fragile and can be easily hurt or even killed.
  • Poor Health - common issues with Maltese teacup puppies are crowded teeth, fragile bones, low blood sugar, and weak internal organs.
  • Toy Maltese puppies
  • Difficult to Potty Train - Maltese tiny teacups come with an even tinier bladder. The smaller the dog, the harder they are to potty train.
  • Picky Eater - many Maltese teacups have digestive and breathing problems that make them very sensitive to the food they eat.
  • Expensive - teacup Maltese are usually hundreds of dollars more than an equally cute and healthier standard sized Maltese.
