|This Growth chart below can help
determine the adult size by weight of the puppy
at different weeks. I usually like to do a weight
at 6, 8 and 10 weeks and do a compare.
The standard for Maltese is 4-7 pounds. They are a toy
size breed. There is no such thing as a teacup. Teacup
is a word used by some breeders to sell their dogs. Be
careful when buying a under size puppy, make sure it
is sound and healthy. Maltese is small size breed. If
one is being considered for a family pet with children I
always recommend going for a larger size.
