Papitese - Maltese Papillon Mix

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.
