These dogs take on the temperament of both Westies and Maltese. They are lively, friendly, and very self-assured.

Most are very intelligent, which makes them to train. These dogs are spunky and they need at least one daily walk. This will combat behavior problems such as compulsive digging, as most terriers love this activity.

They are great travel dogs and make an excellent watchdog. Maltese Westie puppies and dogs get along with most strangers, children, and other dogs. Most people find them to have a lively and robust personality.

Since both the West Highland Terrier and the Maltese are white, this hybrid dog is also always white. Their straight coat may be rough and they may also have an undercoat like most West Highland terriers have.

Their hair grows continuously like human hair. Therefore, they need consistant grooming by either brushing regularly or keeping a short puppy cut.

These dogs are also nonshedding and most are hypoallergenic. Full grown Highland Malties can weigh anywhere from 11-16lbs.
