Malchi Puppy - Norman

by Rachel
(Indiana, USA)


Norman is our family's Malchi puppy, though he is not half and half; he is 3/4 Maltese and 1/4 Chihuahua, so he is much fluffier and weighs slightly more than a "true" Malchi.

He is a very loyal, intelligent dog, and it didn't take us long to housebreak him, or teach him fun tricks, like playing dead. He responds very positively to attention, but hates being left alone if he knows there are people to play with in the house!

Our Malchi puppy is currently 13 months old, and does not shed much.

Malchi Puppy - Duncan

by Aileen
(Texas)

Duncan :)

Duncan :)

This is my new Malchi puppy, Duncan. I got him last month, but he is 7 months old. Born on 12/28/09. I bought him from a groomer who got him and his sister from a breeder. The groomer kept his sister.

When I first got him, he was scared and quiet. I noticed that he had ticks. We pulled a total of 12 ticks from him. The groomer found ticks on his sister as well.

Now, Duncan is extremely lively. He looks like a Maltese and most of his tendencies are Maltese. But sometimes he jumps around like a Chihuahua, but he doesn't yelp like one, which I am extremely grateful for. He is very strong minded and it is hard to train him, but then again, I've never had to train a puppy before. He loves dogs, but is hesitant towards humans. I believe it is because of the conditions that the "breeder" put him in. But he warmed up to me and he loves to play. He lets me brush him now, except for his face. I'm slowly trying to get him to be okay with that. Some days are good, but most are a struggle. He loves chewing. That's his big thing. We've gone through so many toys and paper and now cables....

I would LOVE to have another Malchi like Duncan, but I don't want to pay for one. Part of me feels like paying for a puppy is selfish of the person trying to "give him to a good home". But I understand some parts of it. I think my negative feeling comes from my experience with Duncan's breeder.

I love my boy Duncan! :)

I just got my little Malchi puppy. He is 11 weeks old and he is so adorable. He is cuddly and playful at the same time. He is a bit timid because he is so small he doesn't like to walk on the floor, my Malchi would rather be carried!

Malchi Puppy - Buddy

by Valerie
(Staen Island NY)

I got my Malchi puppy 2 weeks ago, he is 5 mos. old. He is just wonderful. He is bright and play full and loves to cuddle, and enjoys walks. Still housebreaking but getting there.

He is a scraggly looking boy, pink nose, white with tan ears and touches of tan on his back. His hair is long and getting longer daily! My Malchi does shed, but he gets daily brushing that he enjoys. I just love him and would recommend this Maltese mix for any one.

New Malchi Puppy - Tilly

by Alice

Help I miss my mommy!

Help I miss my mommy!

Help, help, help! I just got my Malchi puppy Tilly yesterday. She won't quit crying... On my goodness. I have been up since 2am. I hold her, she cries. It's so sad. I wrap her up in a blanket, she cries. She will finely go to sleep in about an hour. After she eats and uses puppy pad and cries for and hour. She gets tired and goes to sleep. I try to nap while she is napping.

How could a little dog that fits in my hand make so much NOISE? She misses her brothers and sisters and her mommy. But what do I do? She was 6 weeks old yesterday 4-13-09

Here is our new little Malchi puppy. We have just had him for two days and has been alot of fun and seems to be fitting right in. He is going to bed in his kennel around 11pm and waking up around 7am with no night time crying!

He loves to chase his tail and play with his toys and seems to be getting the hang of going on the puppy paper and outside. Only two "accidents". We are lucky to have him as part of our family.

Malchi Puppy - Lace

by Brittany
(Kamloops, BC, Canada)




We brought our Malchi puppy Lace home two weeks ago at 7 weeks (we thought she was 8 weeks but when we found out her actual birthdate we realized she was only 7 weeks). She is the second canine addition to our family as we also have a four year old Maltese Chihuahua Shih tzu named Chantilly. We weren't actually planning on getting another dog, my younger brother friend's dogs had puppies and he ended up babysitting them for a weekend. When my brother went to go feed the dogs and check on the puppies one evening he asked if my mother and I would come and help. Both my mother and I fell in love instantly. I asked jokingly if we could keep one and to my suprise my mom agreed. My brother's friend ended giving one for free.

The mother is a long haired Chihuahua named Chloe, and the father is a Maltese named Bently. There were four puppies in the litter. One black male that they were planning to keep and had named Elvis (the obvious alpha of the litter), a brown male (my mother and I called Brutus), and two white females, one was the only Chihuahua looking one of the litter and the other was our little Lace (the runt).

Lace is a handful. When we first brought her home Chantilly was afraid of her, now they play all the time. Lace is starting to show a little attitide at times, growlong and snapping when she doesn't want to be picked up but we are quick to reprimand her for it and she normally stops after a firm "NO" but it is one of the areas we need to work on. The housebreaking is getting there but we still have lots of accidents. Our Malchi is adorable, loving and extremely payful.

Malchi Puppy - Leia

by Mike and Kim

Leia at 8 weeks

Leia at 8 weeks

Leia is an 8 month old Malchi puppy and what a princess she is! She became the alpha dog in our house in a matter of a couple weeks and is very intelligent; She is a proud graduate of puppy obedience class.

She is getting a bit of a protective/jealous streak but we are working on correcting that behavior. We do have 2 other neutered male dogs in our home that are older and they have all become good friends, however, Leia was only 6 1/2 weeks only when she was introduced into our home.

She weighs in at 8 1/2 lbs right now but her mom (a Maltese) was a little large for the breed. Leia and her sister looked very, very different when we chose her. She had the classic Maltese appearance while her sister had the Chihuahua look. We love our little angel and look forward to many years with her!!!

Malchi Puppy - Angel

Angel's First Day Home

Angel's First Day Home

We just got our Malchi puppy Angel as an early Christmas present last week. She is 6 weeks old. I cannot believe how tiny she is. So far she has been able to come with us everywhere and she does really good.

She loves my 7 year old son and they play together great. My son has been getting up two hours before school just to play with her. She does get up a lot at night, but that is expected of a puppy.

We are so Happy with our Malchi and she is the perfect addition to our family. I have never known a dog with such a large personality at such a young age, especially one that is so tiny.

Malchi Puppy - Carmen

She don't like pictures.....

She don't like pictures.....

Well after some research, I learned that she is definitely a Malchi. We found her on the streets trying to keep up with the neighborhood strays when she was just a puppy, We guess she must have been about a month old.

She has since not left my side, she has a underbite. Which makes her one of a kind. Just can't help but smile when you look at her, many people think shes smiling back at them...haha

We have had our Malchi puppy for 5 months now. She super active, loves to travel, and chasing Geese.

Malchi Puppy - Ginger

by Barbara G.
(Unionville, VA)

She fits in a play puppy purse!

She fits in a play puppy purse!

Ginger is a lively little 10 week old Malchi puppy weighing in at 2.6 pounds, who plays hard and loves to cuddle just as much. She looks much more Chihuahua than Maltese, but there are some definite Maltese characteristics as well.

She's so far very quiet, doesn't make a peep unless you try to crate her and then she cries for awhile, but will settle down if she can watch television from the crate. My Mal-chi thinks she's a big dog and will run after a cat or a Husky and not think twice about the potential danger, so she has to be watched carefully around other animals.

While she tends to prefer me (Mom) most, she is definitely very accepting of the entire family and will sometimes choose my 7 year old daughter as who she wants to be with over me, and will kiss all the boys just as well. I would say my Malchi is the perfect family dog for anyone with children old enough to respect her delicate build. She has been a pure joy in the time we have had her, but we are having a little trouble with potty training, but I'm sure she'll come around in time.

Malchi Puppy - Bailey

by Laura
(Melbourne, Victoria, Australia)

I got my Malchi puppy Bailey about a month ago when he was only a tiny 8 week old and weighed about 2.5 pounds. But in the last month he has almost doubled his size to 5 pounds!! He is meant to be a 50/50 Maltese cross long haired Chihuahua but I think he will end up bigger. Can anyone tell me what age their Malchi roughly stopped growing and does anyone know how big Malchis can get?

He is a real cutie and very playful, loves running around outside and adores all of the attention he gets from strangers!! He is having some difficulty becoming house trained though and he is starting to bite people's hands and ankles which we are trying to nip in the bud! But overall, he's a really great, adorable dog. Does anyone have any tips on training Malchis?

He has already brought us so much enjoyment and I would really strongly recommend this breed to anyone as with a Malchi you have the best of both worlds- an adorable fluffy lapdog that still loves to go for walks and run around.

Thanks so much for any advice!

Sophie is a Malchi puppy that was born on 1/1/11. I just got her last week and she is already the love of my life she goes everywhere with me... LITERALLY!! she is about 3 months old and weighs 1.5 lbs and im wondering if this is a normal weight because it seems very small for a 3 month pup but I wouldnt really know. She has the best personality she never makes a peep I've heard her bark once haha and when she plays she prances around like a horse its adorable. She loves to sleep on her back but wrapped around my neck its hilarious. I am so lucky to have her she really is an amazing dog.

Malchi Puppy - MAXIMUS

by Caroline
(Florida)

Maximus modeling for me <3

Maximus modeling for me <3

I THINK I HAVE THE CUTEST MALCHI PUPPY EVER! (I'm sure every owner says that about their own puppy haha) Maximus is currently 12 wks old. I bought him from a breeder when he was 8 wks. At 8 wks he was 1.4 lbs and currently weighs 2.4lbs.

He is the smartest little dog. They say that big dogs are usually easier to train because of their big brain, but Maltese Chihuahua mixes are sure smart and fast learners.

Max is a Maltese and long hair Chihuahua mix (so he is really fluffy... yet he does not shed) Max can be stubborn at times, but he knows when he can pull it off and when he can't.

He is so loving, he licks everyone he sees (little kisses). He loves people, he has not shown any aggressiveness towards anyone .. yet (hopefully none). He just barked today for the first time! I crate train him and he loves his home. Even when the crate is open, he loves to go in and snuggle with his teddy bears and toys.

If you are thinking about getting a mix... GET A MALTICHI!! they are smart, loyal and so friendly (that is...if you get lucky)

Malchi Puppy - Bruiser

by Jordan
(Lake Oswego, OR)

My Malchi puppy is perfect. He sleeps in with me until I decide to wake up, cuddles with me when I want to be lazy and plays with me whenever we feel like being energetic.(which is often!) I've never met a dog with a bigger or better personality! He howls, cries, talks and squeals like a little bunny. His fur is so soft and he doesn't even shed. My parents have long haired Chihuahua's and my pup has all the best traits from them. Even though I got him at 7 weeks (at only 1.1lbs) he has still slept with me since day one. He uses his wee-wee pad often, but because he is still so young (9.5 weeks) he has the occasional mistake. Bruiser has converted "small dog haters" into small dog lovers. Bruiser gives me kisses in the middle of the night it makes my heart melt! Expect a little puppy with a big heart, big energetic personality, and the sweetest face. All I know is if your Malchi is anything like mine you won't be disappointed.

Cali is the cutest Malchi puppy ever... she has been a great addition to our family. She was so easy to potty train, and has NEVER had one accident. She is 12 weeks now and at the chewing stage, but we are working on it and she seems to be getting it. Our Malchi puppy loves to cuddle and play. She loves the dog park and playing with all the bigger dogs. She loves her purse and goes mostly everywhere with us. I would NOT trade her for the world and so glad we found her. Our Maltese Chihuahua really is the BEST puppy ever.
