These dogs take on the temperament of both Cairn Terriers and Maltese. They are spirited, restless little dogs.
Maltese Cairns are also easy to train and love to show off by doing tricks. You need to give them lots of attention and training though, since they can become destructive and noisy if left alone too long.
This dog does great with children as they are naturally patient and very playful.
Most people find them to be loveable and loyal; while also being merry and mischievous.

A Maltese Cairn Terrier mix comes in various colors such as red, brindle, black, sand and various shades of gray.
Hair usually includes a shaggy outer coat with a soft, downy undercoat. Therefore,
they need to be brushed several times a week and trimmed monthly to keep their coat from getting matted.
Most are also nonshedding and hypoallergenic. Full grown Malticairns average 10-14 lbs, about 4-6 lbs larger than a purebred Maltese.
