Maltese Poodle mixes, also called Maltipoos, are a cross between a Miniature or Toy
Poodle & a Maltese.
These mixed breed dogs are often given specific names, but keep in mind that they are not a separate dog breed.
According to Maltipoo owners, these dogs have very high intelligence and they are recognized as being non shedding dogs. Read more about this Maltese mix below.
Please do not purchase these dogs from a breeder. There is no need to create more mutts when plenty are available for adoption. If you discover a Maltese mix that would fit well with your family, you can easily adopt one at a Maltese Dog Rescue instead (and for a lot less money)!
These dogs take on the temperament of both Poodles and Maltese. They are amusing, clever little dogs.
Malti-poos are also highly intelligent and easy to train. You should socialize and train them to combat barking and boredom. They are sometimes reserved with strangers and can serve as a good watchdog.
This dog does best with older, considerate children as they can be high-strung and timid.
Most people find them to have a people pleasing and carefree personality.

If you like a wide variety of colors, than a Maltese Poodle mix might be right for you! Poodles come in many colors such as apricot, cream, black, white, and brown. When you mix this with a white Maltese, you get varying shades and patches of color. With so much variety, you'll be sure to find a color and style that suits you.
Hair is usually straight and grows continuously like human hair. Therefore, they need consistent grooming by either brushing regularly or keeping a short puppy cut.
These dogs are also non-shedding and most are hypoallergenic. Full grown Malti-Poos average 6-9 lbs, about the same size as a purebred Maltese.
