Maltese Poodle Mixes - Maltipoo

AKA: Maltese Poo, Malti-Poo, Multipoo, Maltepoo

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.

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)!

Maltese Poodle Personality

These dogs take on the temperament of both Poodles and Maltese. They are amusing, clever little dogs.

  • Highly intelligent
  • Easy to train
  • Train often to combat barking and boredom
  • Sometimes reserved with strangers
  • Good watchdogs

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.

Maltese Poodle Mix Appearance

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 wavy 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.
