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!
