Maltipoo

Maltipoo pup’s are a special breed that people fall in love with.

The mix of a Maltese and Poodle is a sweet loving lap dog. These breeds should never be backyard pets . They should always be inside pets.

They thrive on human interaction and require affection daily. If you can’t commit to this then get a different breed. But if you can then Maltipoo will be a wonderful addition to your family.

They are known for being Hypo-allergenic and non shedding, and their small size is great for apartment and condo life. This breed is known by many names, such as Malte Poo, Malta Poo, Multa Poo, Moodle, Malti Doodle, Maltese Poodle, or even Malt Oodles. Unlike other Poodle mixes, the Maltipoo cross is made to create a distinct appearance, rather than to provide the Poodle’s hypoallergenic coat, and is good for allergy sufferers.

Size: The Maltipoo comes in a wide variety of sizes, but most weigh 5-15 lbs. A Maltipoo with more Maltese influence will have a domed skull, whereas a Maltipoo with a higher Poodle influence will have the long, narrow muzzle characteristic of Poodles.

Coat: The Maltipoo coat can range from the silky texture of the Maltese coat to the Poodle’s distinctive frizzy coat. It can be many colors including grey, black, white, and apricot. Most Maltipoos shed little to none and are a good match for allergy sufferers. Many Maltipoos are kept in a short ‘puppy cut’. Some Maltipoo owners choose a longer coat, with the hair tied in a bow above the eyes.

Character: The Maltipoo is an intelligent, loving dog. The mix of Maltese and Poodle usually produces a lively, playful dog devoted to its family. The Maltipoo loves to play or curl up on the couch for a nap, making them a snuggle cuddly pup. Malti Poos require frequent human companionship.

Temperament: The Maltipoo can get along well with dogs and other pets if socialized when young, but it is somewhat territorial.  Maltipoos may be wary of strangers and are highly protective of their family. Maltipoos get along very well with children.

Care: The Maltipoo sheds little or no hair. It requires monthly grooming and regular brushing to prevent tangling. The eyes and ears should also be cleaned regularly with stray hairs removed. Bathe only when necessary. Puppies should not be handled constantly as they need time to rest and relax.

Training: The Maltipoo is eager to learn and should not present many difficulties in training. Positive reinforcement is likely to be the most successful approach. This breed may take a while to house train. Like the Maltese, many Maltipoos are paper or box trained rather than ‘outdoor’ trained.

Activity: The Maltipoo can have most of its exercise needs met by indoor play and activities, but it also enjoys walks or playtime in the yard. The Maltipoo is an excellent breed for apartment life.
