Is He a Malchi?
We were wondering and wondering what breed our sweet rescue pup was... we were told Chihuahua and terrier mix, but he sure looks like Maltese Chihuahua mix. We've had our little guy for 3.5 months and he's pure JOY!
He's a snuggler, loves to run in circles in the backyard, he is very protective and leary of strangers and will bark at airplanes and bicyclists to "scare" them off...(he thinks he's scaring them away!) He loves to sleep on top of our chest or belly, he get sooooo excited to go on a car ride and does really well on a leash for a walk.
He is a 8 lb. pup who thinks he's a fearless 80 pounder, ha! We just adore this bundle of love...
Is Rocky a Malchi?
Rocky the Boy
:) *SIGH ahhh a pet owners dream come true. I actually think I found out what kind of dog Rocky is... a Malchi. I got Rocky about 8 months ago. He was given to us in an emergency situation. The only information the owner gave us was that he was a Chihuahua mix. I haven't had the money to go out and get a dog DNA test but I constantly looked up info on different breeds.
It never crossed my mind that he could possibly be a Malchi until I was at an flea market and seen a handful of Maltese and made the comparisons. When I came home I told my sister that I thought he could be mixed with maltese, however I didnt know much at all about malchi's. I looked it up and came across several malchi's that looked so similiar it brought small tears of joy to my eyes. I felt like my search was over and little Rocky was finally classified! Even if he turns out not to be a Malchi I wont forget the feeling of seeing other beautiful dogs like him. Rocky is so sweet he is extremely close to me. When I'm sad or sick he gets really close to my face and rub his head across my cheeks and chin :)
He is extremely smart!! He trys to say I love you if I say it to him first. (Search Rocky says I love you on youtube to see him try) He likes to sit on my shoulder for some reason or on my chest. He is always underneath me and gets extremely excited to see each and every time I step in the house. If I pucker my lips he jumps up and kisses me. He is a little standofish to strangers. He barks more so at males for some reason. I cant get him to be friendly to other dogs at all! He is ok with little puppies. He doesn't bark at kids or babies. He lovescar rides and is very picky about what he eats. He loves to be silly. Like he will roll around in clothes and covers and kick them up while rolling in circles. He likes to walk around with clothes on his head LOL!
He also likes to mess up his hair if you brush it down. The pic I posted isnt the best but it captures him as the messy rockstar that he is. I love him to death!!! Do you think he is a Malchi? Pleaseee let me know?

Buffy the Maltese Chihuahua cross?
I have a 3 and a half year old pet dog, she was sold to me as a Maltese Chihuahua cross, but she doesn't fit the looks description on this website. She is definitely a Chihuahua cross, but she has shortish smooth hair.
I think that she could be a Chihuahua, Maltese cross Chihuahua, if any 1 could help I would greatly appreciate it.
Is Harley a Malchi?
I have seen a few photos of Malchi's and I am certain that my Harley is one of them, despite being told that she is a Shitzu x Maltese!!! Are you able to confirm?
She is the nicest, sweetest and happiest dog! She is a treasure to be around.
Is Dixie a Malchi?
I'm with Yolo County SPCA (CA), trying to figure out the breed mix, maybe Malchi, of my sweet little foster dog Dixie. 4.4 pounds, about 3 years old. She's fluffy here after a bath. Our intake put her down as terrier but I don't think so, with her size and pointed little muzzle. Think she's a Malchi?
