Maltese Chihuahua Mix - Malchi

AKA: Maltichi, Mal-Chi, Malti-Chi

Chihuahua Maltese mix Malchi Maltese Chihuahua mix

The Maltese Chihuahua mix, or Malchi, is a cross between a Chihuahua
and a Maltese.

These hybrid dogs are recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club and can be registered on their website.

They are an adorable, little Maltese dog breed mix that comes in an array of colors and is growing in popularity because of their lively personality.

Read more about the Malchi below to see if this is the right Maltese mix for you.

Personality

These dogs take on the temperament of both Chihuahuas and Maltese. They are courageous, extremely lively little dogs.

They are also intelligent, but slightly difficult to train. You should socialize and train your Maltese Chihuahua mix to combat barking and jealousy. They are sometimes reserved with strangers and can be slightly dog-aggressive.

This dog does best with older, considerate children as they can snap at younger, teasing children. Most people find them to have a strong-willed, intensely loyal personality.

Appearance

Although most are white or cream, they can come in a variety of colors depending on the Chihuahua used to breed. Since Chihuahuas come in short-haired and long-haired varieties, their hair can be short and scruffy, or long and fluffy.

They may also be nonshedding dogs like a Maltese or shed like a Chihuahua. There is no guarantee of which. Even the same litter can have Malchi puppies with varying degrees of shedding.

They average 4-7 lbs fully grown, about 2-3 lbs smaller than a purebred Maltese.
