AKA: Maltillon

Papitese Papillon Maltese Papitese puppies

The Papitese, or Maltese Papillon mix, is a cross between a Papillon dog
and a Maltese dog.

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

They are one of the rarest Maltese mixes, but are becoming more popular because of their strong loyalty and affectionate personality.

A Papillon Maltese mix takes on the temperament of both Papillons and Maltese. They are gentle, responsive, and very sociable little dogs.

Papitese are also highly intelligent and easy to obedience train. Be sensitive while training though, because harsh words can easily upset them. They love to be around people, dogs, cats and any other pets.

They are alert watch dogs, but welcoming to most strangers. Most people find Papitese puppies to have a cheerful, affectionate, and loyal personality.

These Maltese Papillon dogs come in almost any color, including cream, gold, white, silver, blue, and black. Most are parti (two colors) or tricolor (three colors).

Hair is usually wavy, soft, and double-coated; with both an outer and undercoat. They may also be nonshedding like a Maltese or shed very lightly like a Papillon. Although some do shed, they are almost always hypo allergenic.

Full grown Papillon Maltese average 9-12 lbs, about 3-4 lbs larger than a purebred Maltese.
