Maltipom - Maltese Pomeranian

AKA: Malti-Pom, Pomanees

The Maltipom, also called a Pomanees, is a cross between a Pomeranian and 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 Maltese Pomeranian mix owners, these dogs have an affectionate personality and beautiful coloring. 

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 Pomeranian Personality

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

  • Highly intelligent
  • Easy to train
  • Needs socialization to combat barking and boredom
  • Reserved with strangers
  • 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.

Pomeranian Maltese Mix Appearance

If you like a wide variety of colors, than this dog might be right for you! Pomeranians 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.

They are also non-shedding and most are hypoallergenic. Fully grown, Maltese Pomeranian mixes average 6-9 lbs, about the same size as a purebred Maltese.
