Maltese Papillon - Roxie Love

Roxie is the most amazing Maltese Papillon dog! She is so loyal and wonderful and full of energy all of the time. She will be 4 on the 22nd of February. I got her when she was 6 weeks old and have loved every second.

The only problem I have with this breed is the mixture between the Maltese coat and the Papillon coat. I owned a Papillon for 14 years and never had a matting issue but with Roxie it is horrible. I brush her all the time but it doesn't seem to help.

Any ideas? I wouldn't trade her for the world though!

Gave up!
by: Courtney

Went to a Puppy Cut and we love it! She now has wavy hair when it grows out and the only place she mats now is her ears! This is an awesome breed...I will say that we have a new puppy also named Madelyn (Maddie) who is a Westie-Poo. That is a great Breed as well. They get along well but Roxie gets very jealous and doesn't want to share mom! I got Roxie from a breeder who is no longer breeding. They retired but good luck!

I have a maltese and I keep her in a puppy cut. She doesn't have problems.

I see that you are from Wichita. Where did you find a Papitese in Wichita? I've been looking for one.

Roxie Love!
by: LuLu and LoLLy!

Dear Roxie Love, you are a Love indeed! We are pure Maltese and we wish we had tips for the tangled hair but we don't... all we know is that in the summer we love to get our hair shaved off it's so liberating! We always run and run and play and play for days afterward! Love, your Maltese dog PaLs, Lulu and LoLLy! http://www.luluandlolly.com

Conditioner
by: Anonymous

I use Pantene for curly hair shampoo and conditioner. Believe it or not it does not mat!!!. Also do not use collars on them unless you are going out. Have fun!

Puppy cut
by: Sue

I have a Maltese and a Maltese/Pappillon mix. Due to the type of fur(hair) of the "mix" or Papitese, I leave her coat long. I keep the Maltese in the puppy cut which does help. I brush both twice a day (min) with a wire brush and cut out the small patches that matt. Hope this helps.

Maltese Papillon - Sofie

Sofie's Magnificent Adventure

Sofie's Magnificent Adventure

Sofie is an almost four year old Maltese Papillon and the most wonderful dog. She loves to play and chew up her toys. She will line them all up on the bed and when I get home stand on her hind legs and present me with her toy. She is very loyal and just a little cuddle bug. She has the Maltese fur but the ears and face of a Papillon. She gets groomed in a puppy cut and then she really looks more like a pap except her ear hair is not as long as a pap. Her mother was the Maltese and her father was the Papillion. I have included a picture of my girl.

Papillion Maltese Mix - Bunny

by Sarah
(Arizona)


Bunny got her name not only for her oversized ears, but she bounces a lot. Whether she is running or she is dancing on her hinds, she has the most adorable bounce. Bunny is my heart and I am guilty of spoiling her a lot. She is just so cute!

Her mother was the Papillion and her father was a Maltese. She approximately 14 weeks and weighs 2lbs. She is a spunky, bouncy, cuddly dog that loves to run around the house playing with the other pets; a 7 year old Blue Pit Bull named Leylah and a Maine Coon Mix we call Joe.

Bunny is very smart, and often stubborn, and is doing very well in paper training, but does still have the occasional accident. Due to her size and the fact that there are a lot of predators, including birds of prey, where I live, we are just now venturing on the back patio. She has always been a very clean pup, which is good because she hates baths. She is bold and doesn't shy away from exploring. She loves shoes and socks, and is often found running through the house with someone's sock. She wakes me up each morning by pawing and licking my face, or if she fell asleep in the dog bed, she will whine until I wake up. Once in the bed, she loves to be cuddled up around my neck or in the crook of my arm. She loves toys, and even has her own toy box, which she empties regularly.

We just started to work on commands, but she gets so excited with treats that it is often hard to get her calm enough to pay attention.

As you can tell, she is loved. I don't think I ever want another breed!

Maltese Papillons - Tinkerbelle and Teddy Bear

by Sandra Osterby
(Hermon, ME)



Tink and Teddy are 12-year-old Maltese Papillions. My sister and her friend thought they would start a new breed. But she didn't count on the chaos 3 little pups would bring, so I took 2 of them and they have been with me ever since. Very different personalities. Tinkerbelle (pictured) is very possessive of me and jealous of other dogs including her brother. She is VERY smart - and very exuberant. Teddy is very shy and quiet - loving and adorable. He loves all people and all dogs but is kind of leery of his sister. They have been faithful companions through a lot over the last 12 years. My Maltese Papillions are my babies. I love them to pieces.

Moe

by Faith
(St Louis Missouri)


Hello, I'd like to tell you about Moe...his daddy is a Maltese, his mommy is a Papillon. He was born Nov 16, 2011 and I have had him for a week now. Previously I had a Maltese who recently passed away at the ripe age of almost 15 years old. I missed him so much that I went looking and fell in love with Moe. He has the markings of the Papillon and the hair of a Maltese so he doesn't bother my extreme allergies at all.

Moe has pretty much learned our home routine, every morning when I put my coat on to go to work he runs to one of my spare bedrooms..it is decorated with a lot of Elvis stuff. I had placed him in there the first morning he was to be left alone..and somehow he adopted that room to his. He sits in the middle of the floor and waits for me to give him his liver treat and stays in there all day. He has only messed in his room a couple of times. I put a puppy pee pad in there and he ripped it up, squished it into a rumpled ball and hid it behind the oak rocking chair...as if to say..."I don't pee in my room"...lol.

He is so much fun and a ball of energy. He hates a leash...he does however like the collar!!! Hopefully soon he will get the knack of going for a walk...

His favourite passtime is to be in the shower...yep he loves it...so we shower at night, because he doesn't seem to realize I don't have time to blow dry him in the mornings..yep he loves that also....he is such a good boy!!!

My Maltese Papillon cross is the most loving, adoring dog you could ever imagine. I had never heard of a Papillon until this little man was given to me. I also have a Spoodle pup. I am amazed daily at how they are so happy to lie close to each other, in bliss.

Do you know of any place around the Seattle WA
area that has any Maltese Papillon cross to adopt
or that has some for 250 to 300 dollars. We are just looking for a female pet. Our Maltipom just died and we really miss her.

Maltese Papillon - Daisy

by Rain
(Savannah, GA, USA)

I love my Maltese Papillon baby, Daisy! She sleeps next to my bed each night and she loves to play a lot AND cuddle, so it's the best of both worlds! She tends to be a little shy towards strangers, but she is very sweet. Her favorite treat is lettuce and she knows how to sit, speak, twirl, touch, and give me nuzzles! I would suggest this dog breed for anyone! She also is very patient with children and rarely ever snips! My Papitese has kind of long fur that is a vanilla color with sable-color patches. Her coat is soft and I rarely have to deep vacuum due to fur(:
