Maltese Shih Tzu - George

by Kelly Young
(Victoria, BC Canada)



My Maltese Shih Tzu George is awesome. He was born Feb 11 2010 and came into my life on May 9th 2010. He is the sweetest little one you could ever meet. He had pretty intense separation anxiety for the first couple of months, but has gotten better now that I have returned to work.

To house break my Maltese Shih Tzu took about 2 months fully before he stopped using the pee pad. He is stubborn with sitting and sometimes pulls on the leash, and while I basically let him get away with murder, he knows when he is in the wrong.

George is my love, my life, my friend, my family. He is simply awesome.

Maltese Shih Tzu Brothers - Rusty and Wolfie

by Chancey Maire
(Glennville, GA)

Wolfie (L) and Rusty (R)

Wolfie (L) and Rusty (R)

Rusty and Wolfie are Maltese Shih Tzu brothers (hard to believe by the photo). They were born in the same litter from the same mom and dad.

I always wanted a little dog, so when my husband and I got married in August of 04 he told me I could have one for Christmas. In October his sisters friend from work announced that his mothers Shih Tzu had puppies with the neighbors Maltese. I was over joyed that he gave us the pick of the litter.

When we got there and was walking up to the kennel Rusty's head popped up. I fell in love without looking at the others. He was cute and my husband swore he was cross-eyed. I loved him none the less. His sister picked out Wolfie, she said he looked like a wolf pup. Six months later she decided she didn't want to keep Wolfie and since he spent so much time with my Rusty my husband adopted him into our family. So we then had two Maltese Shih Tzu puppies.

Rusty's hair gets medium long and I have to keep it cut short due to the shedding (my husband hates that I give him a mowhawk) and Wolfie's hair stays the same length and isn't long but both of their tails curl over their backs.Those two are spunky and love being held. Wolfie can sit up on his hind legs and beg. Rusty is so laid back you wouldn't know he was in the house if you didn't see him sitting in front of the TV. They like to sleep in the bed with me but are big bed hogs. They know when I say "time for bed" that means to go to their bed and go to sleep.

They are cute and one of the loves in my life. I don't know for a fact if they are a Malshi but I would like to know why Wolfie looks nothing like his brother?

Maltese Shih Tzu - Mia

Maltese Shitzu Mia at 13 weeks old!!

Mia is a 4 month old Maltese Shih Tzu or Malshi and is completely house trained. She can sit pretty, give a paw and lay down.

She is excellent with children and is a little mother hen to my 8 month old son. She loves to chase birds and her best friend is our 6 year old Yellow Lab Gunther.

The Malshi breed is truly a wonderful mix. They are loving, kind, genuine and caring. If you are looking for a small dog, they are the one to buy.

Maltese Shih Tzu - Lucky

by Kristina
(Australia)

My Maltese Shih Tzu Lucky was my soul! Whenever my family and I would go outside he would run up to us and start jumping up on us like crazy! He would never give down to a game of fetch and would always jump on the swing next to you and let you pat him.

On October the 2nd his behavior started to change. My Maltese Shih Tzu wasn't eating, hardly drinking, wouldn't run and could hardly jump on the swing. I was worried and asked my parents to take him to the vet for a check up but knowing then it would be expensive. I went on all the websites trying to find out what it is and it kept coming up as something bad or fatal.

We took photos of him all day and then on the 4th of October 2010 he died. It was early in the morning and my dad took My Maltese Shih Tzu away. He wouldn't tell me where and they took his kennel etc. It was breaking my heart every minute and we still don't know what caused it. He will forever be in our hearts! My Lucky.

Sorry for your loss
by: Ana

Some times you can get free or cheaper veterinary check ups at shelters. Please look into that in your area, should a similar situation ever arise in the future.

Sorry you lost your puppy! :(

I am so sorry for your loss
by: Maltese Mommy

I am so sorry for your loss.

"Lucky" is a great name for your little one, because there is no doubt that he was lucky to have an owner like you who loved him so much.

I know you miss him a lot. I hope your happy memories of this great pet will keep you smiling and that you will happily share stories about Lucky for years to come.

You are in my prayers!

Maltese Shih Tzu - April

by Maria Magdalena
(Singapore)

Pretty babe

Pretty babe

"She's truly one of a kind", all my friends would say about my Maltese Shih Tzu. She has a pair of alert and bright cherry eyes, which seemed to stare right into your eyes. Weighing only 2.5 kg and she's 7 years old tomorrow, but her gut is definitely Doberman size. My Maltese Shih Tzu is protective towards my two little niece and nephew when we are outside, she would bark at people getting near them. While most dogs toned down after spaying, I find her behavior goes back to puppy-hood, as feisty and curious as one. She loves running on the grass and would always run to form a number 8. Strangers would always stop to give her a pat and in her good mood, she will reply by kissing them, at other times, she would snap, too =(. She's a blessing, although she could be a package of chaos and cuteness all in one.

Maltese Shih Tzu - Bentlee

by Natasha Blount
(Brooklyn NY, United States)

Bentlee

Bentlee

My Maltese Shih Tzu Bentlee isn't your average dog he thinks he's human, just like us he does not like rain, puddles getting his hair wet and dirty, and a very picky eater. Instead of him barking at me to let me know he has to use the bathroom, he sits on the floor and make this strange growling noise but it sounds like hes talking in the sense. My dog is a very loveable dog, no one can resist coming in and acknowledging the KING before they speak to his owner the QUEEN, because if they dont and he disagrees with their actions he will let them know asap. I love having a Malshi he is very easy to train and his maintenance isnt at all to much for me to handle. But what he does that annoys me a little bit is hes always in my laundry bags messing with my underwear, and inside of my new clothing shopping bags taking stuff out as if he has a real motive behind his actions. I love being the owner of my Maltese Shih Tzu Mr. Bentlee.

Maltese Shih Tzu - Willow Grace

by Rose
(Ohio)

Willow Grace

Willow Grace

My Willow Grace is the smartest, sweetest, lovable Maltese Shih Tzu in the world, at least to me. She's has a great personality. She never meets a stranger. She just loves everyone she meets. She loves showing off.

She knows all the basic commands stay, sit, lay down, heel, come and fetch. She knows the names to all of her toys and she will fetch them on command. She loves dressing up, bath time and being groomed. She needs and wants alot of attention, and of course she gets it.

The Maltese Shih Tzu mix needs and takes extra care then others. Please be aware that they are very high maintenance animal. If you don't have the time to keep them groomed, or interact with them 90% of your time, please consider a different breed.

Willow does have one issue, that she as some difficulty with - potty training. Willow does great when kept on feeding and potty schedule but there have been times completely my fault there have been oops! ACCIDENTS. I just clean it up and go on.

Willow brings out the best in me. My Maltese Shih Tzu is truly a blessing a pure joy to have around She's my shine shine.

TO KAREN
by: willow's mom

KAREN ABOUT YOUR LITTLE ONE POOPING IN THE CRATE. ALTHOUGH I HAVE NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM WITH WILLOW, I HAVE SOME HELPFUL HINTS. ONE- MAYBE THE CRATE IS TO BIG MAKE IT JUST BIG ENOUGH THAT SHE CAN TURN AROUND IN IT. TWO- DO NOT PUT FOOD IN THE CRATE. THIRD-MAYBE YOU NEED TO TAKE HER OUT 1 HOUR AFTER SHE EATS. THREE- WHEN SHE GOES OUT TELL HER TO HURRY. KEEP SAYING LETS PEE,PEE HURRY-MAKE HER POTTY TIME LIMITED. IF YOU TAKE HER OUT FOR LONG PERIODS ,SHE MIGHT THINK THIS IS PLAYING TIME. AS SOON AS SHE DOES HER BUSINESS,PRAISE HER, THEN TAKE HER BACK IN SIDE AS SOON AS SHE POTTIES. HOPE THIS HELPS SOME. LET ME KNOW HOW ITS GOING. ANOTHER THING BE PATIENT.
GOOD LUCK

So cute!
by: Anonymous

Willow is absolutely adorable! My Morkie Belle has about the same markings. I thought having a tiny little girl would be so fun to put ribbons and bows in her hair. Well, Belle is tiny at 7 pounds but the longest she has kept a bow or barrett is about 15 seconds. I don't have the patients to let her hair on top grow long enough I guess. She is going to the groomer Saturday for the first time (she is 8 mos.) we will see what luck she has. Have fun with your beautiful baby, I think they were bred for us "puppy mommies" to love!

She's just too cute with her topknot!

Willow is really cute. My malti-poo Zoe is all white and also wants to be with someone every minute. Luckily our female golden Holly acts as her "Nanny." Our little one only weighs 6 pounds and we liter box trained her. She never has accidents.

WHAT A BABY GIRL!
by: Anonymous

She looks alot like my Zoe (11 mos old) but Zoe is all white. Your description of Willow Grace is very much the same also. I had Willow picked out as a name but went with Zoe after everyone loved that name for her. How do you keep her eyes from tearing? I do have a small problem with Zoe's eyes from staining. I use Angel Eyes (the powder applied around the eyes) which has helped and she does drink distilled water. Your Willow is doll baby!

Hello from Pippin
by: Pippin

Hello lulu and lolly

You are gorgeous! I hardly bark at anything unless they are close to my house. My favourite food is smackos popcorn. When I am really good I get a lot! My owner spoils me rotten...
This year I am having my 2nd birthday. Last year I had a party and I had 4 friends over and had a special doggie cake made for me. I did't like wearing the party hat much so I played with it until it tore!
Bye for now

Hello LuLu!
by: LuLu and LoLLy!

Dear LuLu, Hi! We are two Maltese dogs, and one of us is named LuLU too! We are LuLu and LoLLy! Anyway, we bark at the wind and noises because we have super sensitive smarter-than-human-ears and we can hear things they can't! And also, in terms of that walking into walls thing, maybe you should have the V-E-T look at you to see if there is something a little wrong with your vision or something because one of our pack members had some problems and she was doing the same thing! Love, your Maltese dog PaLs, LuLu and LoLLy! http://www.luluandlolly.com

Maltese Shih Tzu - Koa


My Maltese Shih Tzu Koa is now 2+ years old and 12-1/2 lbs. He's still super cute and loves his many dog and people friends. Although, he's more reserved with strangers and new dogs, once he gets to know them, he's super friendly.

He loves to play, but is a real couch potato in the hot afternoons. My Maltese Shih Tzu sleeps upside down on the sofa all the time. He's a addicted to face and feet licking, so I get a facial every day (dog tongues are great for exfoliating) ;P

Maltese Shih Tzu Cross - Mitzee

by Mare
(Philadelphia, PA USA)


Our little 4 1/2 year old Maltese Shih Tzu cross Mitzee is not so little, weighing in at 17.5 lbs. She lives with an older Pekingese brother, who is 9 1/2. Mitzee is the cutest little dog, children love her, they think she is a stuffed animal, because she just hangs there like one, when she is being held. She loves to walk on our tredmill, takes long walks with her Mommy (the Pekingese just wants to smell on wallks, so they usually go separate). She loves the Daddy of the house, and follows him around, whichever room he is in, yes even to bed :) She is a great entertainer. Say the word 'squirrel', 'cat' or 'bird' and she is right at our door, ready to protect. Our Maltese Shih Tzu cross knows many tricks, and she talks to you alot. She can say "I love you", and whenever we come home, she yells at us for about 5 minutes. She lights up the whole house, and we are blessed to have our Malshi dog!
