My Maltese/Shih-Tzu is more Maltese than Shih-Tzu... Owner said these pups all take after the dad who was a maltese. Both parents were small... We got her at 7 weeks at 1 lb.5 ozs
She is now 14 weeks and weighs 3 lbs 7ozs. I am thinking she will probably be around 6-7 lbs. The perfect size for us.

She is so smart and learned to sit and stay and "wait" and "No-no" (all in a normal voice- no raised voice) at 8 weeks.

She is so eager to please and loves to play... She is actually one of the best dogs we have ever had and we have had many in our 50 years of marriage.

She has the black and white coloring with only one black eye (and one white) and is so adorable. Coat and face is just like the Maltese.

The Maltese breed has always been my favorite but our last baby girl was a Maltese-Shih-Tzu and lived 18 years so we had to go with this mix. Is there anything more adorable? I think not!

Hello Everyone.
Love this web site! Dory Glory has recently been spayed and did ok except no one tells you how very constipated they often are after surgery. I guess I should have known. it took daily pumpkin and daily small amounts of mineral oil for her to "go" and that was after almost 4 days. I would know now to start the pumpkin and very small amounts (tiny drizzles) of mineral oil right away. She would not drink water and I had to "push" that with a syringe also which helped.
She is now at 6.4 lbs at almost 6 months...
Thought that might be helpful for some in estimating weight. She was 1 lb 5 ozs at 7 weeks... She is still the sweetest and most adorable pup we have ever had and our delight!
Thank you Maltese Maniac for allowing me to share this info. I learned so much from her recent spay that we were not told. The internet is a wonderful source of information. Love to all...
