These dogs take on the temperament of both Dachshunds and Maltese. They are lively, affectionate, and bold little dogs.
Maltese Dachshund dogs are very curious and sometimes can become mischievous; which can make them difficult to train.
You should socialize and train them to combat compulsive barking and digging. They are great travel dogs
and make a good watchdog.
These dogs do best with older, considerate children as they are moderately
protective and sometimes quick to bite. Most people find them to have a willful and clownish personality.

If you like a wide variety of colors and a unique shape, than this Maltese mix might be right for you!
Dachshunds may be solid-colored tan or yellow or bi-colored deep black, brown, or gray with areas of bright chestnut.
There are also piebald, speckle-streaked, or harlequin varieties.
When you mix this with a white Maltese, you get varying shades and
patches of color. You might say that they are like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get.
Hair is usually straight and long. Therefore, they need daily combing and brushings. Some will shed, while others will not.
Since Dachshunds come in many sizes (Toy, Miniature, and Normal), full grown Dachshund Maltese mixes can weigh anywhere from 6-15lbs.
