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.

3/4 Maltese 1/4 Chihuahua
by: DSK Steph

Norman is adorable! I am the new owner of two 75% Maltese 25% Chihuahua puppies. Both boys, Timmy & Wally. They're only 8 weeks and 5 days old today (June 13, 2010). I'm so glad to have found someone else with the same mix. I'm excited to train them. I can't wait to see what they look like when they grow up. Thank you for sharing Norman! :)

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! :)

NEVER PAY FOR A PUPPY OR DOG! NEW
by: Anonymous

Never pay for a puppy or dog, unless you are paying a shelter or the humane society for their adoption fees. Too many adorable dogs need loving homes. We got our Malchi from a neglectful breeder that was disposing of all their dogs. After almost losing her because of malnutrition and then paying over $500.00 in vet. care costs and then later getting her spade so NOONE could EVER breed her, our Malchi is now healthy and and a happy member of our family. We adopted our other dog, a PomChi, from the humane society. Everyone should REFUSE to pay even $1 to a breeder. We have a pet overpopulation problem so why would ANYONE want to contribute to the problem and fund the people who perpetuate the problem?!

don't feel 'guilt' over anything that brings you joy...whether you 'pay' for it with dollars or time and energy - we all PAY - but what I wanted to emphasize in my comment is to get that baby checked for lyme disease based on the tick exposure ok? Good luck w/ that beauty - and do NOT make excuses on how you got your fur baby - it is what it is - God meant for you and that dog to be together - and that is THAT! xo

Breeder info...
by: Anonymous

Hi, all!

Chip came from a breeder out in OK. Her name is Jerrie, and she is wonderful, and I HIGHLY recommend her!
My vet was hugely impressed by how healthy, happy and well adjusted Chip is.
Jerrie's website is: www.easypuppyluv.com

There were 5 puppies in his litter, and there is 1 male and 1 female left as of today (8/26) She is asking $550 for the female and $500 for the male, and that includes shipping. The female is really tiny... still only 1.25 lbs as of last week. They are all supposed to stay under 4 lbs.

Please email me if you get one... we would love to be in touch with Chip's brothers and sisters!

Thanks, all!

We have a name!
by: Kelly

Well, our puppy is here, and we've named him "Chip". So far, he has been wonderful! He was in his crate for around 7 hours or more during his flight to get to us, and never went once in there. He seemed very fearful and afraid to move until we let him go in the grass. He went immediately, and then came out of his shell and started chasing us around. I guess he just really had to go! He slept all through the night on his first night home, and already "tells" us when he needs to go out.(He was 8 wks old yesterday.) He is a very happy, well adjusted puppy, and I would highly recommend his breeder. He has 2 brothers and 1 sister that are still available if anyone is interested. Just email me, and I can give you her info.

Malchi Puppy - Buddy

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.

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

Tilly is sad because she's away from her litter mates and mother. Rule of thumb is to let her whine. Like a human she needs to learn to self soothe. You are enabling the behavior. I have my Dean next to my bed, so he can see and smell my husband and I. We've only had him for 2 days and he's whining for around 5 minutes at bed time and after 3 am bathroom break. Take a look at the house training bible (gooogle it). It helps a lot! and get her trained by a professional trainer (petco is rougly $15 dollars a class) They'll tell you everything you need to know!

Tic-Tock
by: Kadi

I had the same problem... if it is still a problem, and you have yet to solve your problem, try this; get a old wind up battery clock... wind it up, place it inside a large sock, try the top of the sock in a knot, and place it in the kennel at night. The "tic-tock" reminds him of his mothers heart beat and settles his nerve, which helps him fall asleep.

Good Luck!

A place to sleep
by: Anonymous

Hi, my 3month old was difficult to leave at night but sleeping with any one of us in the family meant we were up every few hours playing with her...we found the solution for us was putting her in a baby port-a-cot - the collapsable ones you take out for baby sleeps...the first time we set her up in it with a cuddly blanked and some soft toys she slept throught the night without a whimper. We now put her in there if we go to work or go out or when we are just in need of a break from her constant play and she knows it is her time to have a rest and will often sleep for 4 or 5 ours in the day without any problem. We put her bed in one corner and a puppy pad down the other end in case she cant hang on but have had very few times when she's had to use it. Sometimes if we've had visitors or she's been for a long walk with lots of playing and she's tired she scratches on the side of the pen and asks to be put to bed! Worth a try if you have a space to set one up permanently for a while.
Good luck

Tilly
by: Anonymous

Hi, I am so happy you found the source of little Tilly's pain. As the others mentioned she was much too young to be taken from her mommie. Mommy hasn't had enough time to teach, nurture and groom her little ones to go out on their own.
I have Yorkies, Maltese and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. I also foster for several agencies so I am familiar with the emotional issues a pup sometimes develops having been removed from it's mother too soon. It could manifest itself in many ways so it would help to study up on pups removed from their moms too soon. There is a wealth of info in cyberspace. I would also be a cautious about taking her back to the breeder even for a couple weeks. If he/she wasn't concerned about releasing pup so early I would be concerned about the care little Tilly would receive. I am not accusing anyone but ethical breeders don't allow their pups adopted at six weeks and do background checks on who gets their puppies. I strongly recommend you have your little fella vet checked and explain circumstances to the vet so they will know to do a thorough exam. A good physical and blood test is probably all you need but it is definately a good idea. In these little breeds you may also have the vet do a bile acid test to check for liver shunt. It is a relatively simple test and not expensive. They just draw their blood when you bring them in (no feeding before they go in for about 12 hours) and then they feed them a high protein (usually AD- the dogs love it) and then recheck their blood a while later. That's all it takes to find a very prevalent (in these smaller breeds) and potentially fatal condition. I received a surrendered yorkie/norfolk terrier mix who was very ill. Turned out she had a liver shunt. Thank god it was operable. But I personnaly wouldn't purchase certain smaller breeds without the test. Early separation can also manifest itself with OCD. Yep! dogs get it. I am fostering one and I have to tell you he can be a handful.
Another significant problem that can be result is severe separation anxiety. As Tilly becomes accustomed to you she has transferred him maternal need to you. It is possible that as she becomes older she will develope separation anxiety if she is not taught at a very young age (ongoing) that she can survive when you are not home. It may seem cruel but you need to be her mommy and teach her to be independant/separated from you without fear. You need to do that now and on a continued basis. There are ways to make her feel comfortable and safe. Utilization of a crate is terrific for that. They learn to love their little dens. It is their safe home. Learn what a mommy dog would do and you need to do it starting yesterday. I am so happy you found that nasty burr. I hope you and Tilly have a long and happy life. Clearly she has a loving mommy who worries about her. Congradulations Mommy! If you would like any info exchange or advise you can email me at sinopa@comcast.net

Suggestions to help calm her
by: Anonymous

Good Morning there, I have some advice that might work. Since I do not know if she was just taken from her litter mates, I am going to answer with some assumptions. 1) assumed you just received her from her breeder and its her first time away from her litter mates. 2) assuming your crate training (if not please give strong consideration to doing so as it promotes a sense of security. Suggestions: 1) Put soft stuffed animals in her crate. This will give her the sense of litter mates to cuddle. Since they are used to sleeping with other warm bodies. They like to cuddle. You can put in a warm, water bottle as well and surround the stuff animals around it. You can also put rice in a sock and put it in the micro-wave. Be careful as sometimes they can be to hot 2) Use a soothing steady voice to calm her down. Only use one or two commands, as to not get her confused. For my chi I have used, "your ok, easy now" Very soothing and clam. If your pitch is high and voice sounds concerned then she will pick up on this energy and not calm down. 3) I love using Bach Flower Essences, easy to use put in water on directly on the base of their ears. www.bachremedies.com I suggest Rescue Remedy. Hope this helps, my chi went through this as well. Do not worry. If you need further help email me at www.doggiedriving.com All the Best, Melissa and Zeus

btw - can you change teh title to happy little tiny tot? I hope that she loves her new home and despite being let go early - if there is no bringing her back to be weaned properly - it is not too late to make sure she feels secure and the tips you got are perfect - hot water bottle and/or anything squishy that feels comfy to that tiny tot! Good Luck - I have a tiny 5 lb doggie who is sick right now and it is why I am up and will remain up all night to be sure seh does not get sick during the nite - sleep w/ 1 eye open time! :-)]

Tilly had a sticker under her arm pit......
by: Anonymous

Oh thank all of you for your comments...I have been rubbin on Tilley and cuddeling on her, only to cause her to cry more. Holding her close to me only caused her to cry and wimper. Then I set her on my chest and leaned her on her bottom to look in her face and soothe her. When I held her under her arm pit ...I felt a goat head sticker under her arm pit....!!!! It stuck me when I tried to get it out.
I got the sicker cut out of her hair...and cleaned the little sticks to her skin.. And guess what ...she is soooo happy...
She is playing and runnin around and happy, happy , happy. She is going on her puppy pad just fine and eating great now. The only time she wines is when I go up the stairs and she can't follow me (yet). I have to take her with me when I go.. She growls and plays with my light pick fluffy house slippers. I think she thinks they are her missing brothers. Oh I'm so glad. Tilly and I took a nice long 3 hour nap after I got the sticker out. Man we were both tired.

Poor Little Tyke; Poor You with No Sleep.
by: Anonymous

So did you meet Tilly's litter mates? How long
has she been weaned from her mother? When I bred
scotties, I NEVER allowed them to be taken before
8-10 weeks. It's imperative that the puppy be
with its Mom; otherwise it will have many problems later on. (Constant chewing, mouthing too hard, etc.) My Momma dog always taught the pups not to "mouth" too hard; she even had them pretty well housebroken by the time they went to their new homes. She would shoo them outside with her to relieve themsleves. They would follow her around and she would teach them how to be proper dogs. Who was Tilly's
breeder? Responsible breeders do NOT allow puppies to be sold too early.
If you can't get the breeder to take Tilly back for a week or two until she is ready for human socialization, then you could try
putting a windup alarm clock with her, along with a hotwater bottle wrapped in flannel...but
the best way for a puppy to feel warm and secure
is to snuggle up with you...however, at some point she's going to need to get used to sleeping in her crate...perhaps you can put her
with a soft stuffed animal...or a soft sock with your scent on it. I feel sorry that your little
Tilly didn't get to be with her Mom for a couple
more weeks. Good luck to both you and little Tilly.

Tilly -- can we help?
by: LuLu and LoLLy

Hi Tilly's human -- this is Cynthia Miller, I'm a human to 2 Maltese dogs and have had 2 others, as well as many puppies. Unfortunately, many people are now selling / giving away puppies much too young! Used to be 8 - 10 weeks (I always gave mine away at 10) ... and now it's down to 6. She just wasn't ready. I would seriously consider seeing if she can live with her biological mom and litter for another 2 weeks. It's like taking an 8 year old out of a human home versus an 18 year old, who's ready to go. Also, I would consider getting 2 puppies when you reunite with Tilly -- I've always had 2 and it makes a world of difference. I'm so sorry about this, I know it's heart-breaking. Come visit at http://www.luluandlolly.com if you want to "talk" some more about it -- you can email me through my website there -- really want to help if i can. We were fostering a puppy this weekend, it's so hard for these little critters! Cynthia Miller

HELP with Crying
by: Tracey

I got Cooper when he was only 5 weeks old. He was the old boy out of 6 with the runt being very weak. It was sad that his Momma didn't want him anymore, so we all felt the best thing to do at the time was to take him home early. Because he was so young, we took a towel, we call it his blankie now, and rubbed it on Momma to get her scent. It worked from the first night. I was able to wash it after about a week and he still uses it now. He loves his blankie. If you are in contact with the breeder you got him from, you may want to try this. It's worth a shot! Good Luck!

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.

Puppy name and Story
by: Courtnie Harrison

My Malchi's name is Marley and he is a six month and he is the real life version to the movie, "Marley & Me". If they needed a dog to base the personality for the dog in the movie, they might as well have based it off my puppy.

What I would do is look at your puppys personality and take it from there, Personality always gives you the name. Trust me.

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.

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

by Sandy
(Az)

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

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!

Bailey
by: Little Miss Muffit

Your Bailey sounds just like our Little Miss Muffit. She is a Maltese/Yorkie cross. But the personality of these Maltese crosses seems very similar. I've heard that Maltese can be anywhere from 7 to 12 lbs. My Morkie is about 7 lbs. at 10 months. She hasn't grown any more since she was 6 mos. old. She, too, still has problems with house training. We trained her to a cat box with newspapers at 8 wks. old. We have since added puppy pads to the box and around it as she sometimes is too lazy to get in the box. One day she will do everything just perfect, then the next day she squats "close, but no cigar!" She is a little devil when she wants to be! But we love her intelligence, spunk, cuddles, kisses, and adorableness so much, we put up with her occasional misses. These Maltese cross dogs are a joy!

Malchi Puppy - Sophie

by Destiny
(Laguna Niguel, CA 92677)




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)

Tot
by: Michael

I love my Malchi! His name is Tot (like tater tot), and he's so good. We got him, 2 hours after being at my house he went on the paper and still does to this day. I have a 2 year old chihuahua who isn't fond of other dogs, but he loves to play with Tot. The boys wrestle and snuggle and play tug-a-war. I have never ever seen my chihuahua so playful and fun. Tot does bite alot when it's bedtime, but I know it's from teething, but other than that he comes to work with me and sleeps on clients laps all day long (I work at a salon) and he's just very sweet and quick to learn and adapt to new situations. Great dog, great companion, perfect snuggle buddy, perfect brother, and smart.

Lots of fun
by: Fairy

Hi
I have a 12 wk old Malchi called Pablo. He weighs about 4 1bs but is a big ball of fluff. He chews a lot but is pacified most of the time with chew toys. Not fully potty trained yet but i've only had him a wk. He is so much fun and entertains himself by barking at our 14 yr old cat.

too cute!
by: phoebe

I just got a malchi yesterday! She's so tiny, so I named her tinkerbell. We call her tinky for short. I have 3 young boys, & they just adore her! We all do! My husband didn't want anymore dogs after our husky passed away, but he spoils her rotten, & she's great w/ my kids! She loves to play, & cuddle! Def. A great breed to buy for any fam. I've heard, like the maltese, they adapt to your lifestyle!

on your cute but naughty...if your puppy is only 5-6 weeks old it is teething...get it some chew toys and freeze them. it isnt old enough to be potty trained yet but work with it. either take it outside or the easier option, paper train to a litter box. keep in confined area and when pup goes to pee place on paper and use command words (go potty) and good puppy when done! give treats to reward.

Cute but naughty
by: Liza

HELP!! my malchi may look cute but when you get to close she barks and bites. She chews everything in the house and bites way to hard and she ignores it. She isn't potty trained and yet she's 5-6 weeks old. So now our new carpet is dirty. And she is spoiled by my parents. She even ate my eraser! She chews everything and we can't trust her. She messes up our house. I need tips and FAST! PLEASE HELP ME!

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.

My Malchi puppy Charly is a fun adventurous puppy with lots of personality. She loves to play with other dogs and cats. She likes attention and cuddling on HER time and is very active and loves playing outside. She is very social with the entire family unlike my other Chihuahuas. She's bouncy and cute and is always trying to play with everything and everyone. She is an amazing Maltese Chihuahua puppy with all the love in the world and everyone that meets her loves her spunky personality.

Malchi Puppy - Cali

by Tina
(Los Angeles, CA)



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.
