Scrub the Mauxie

Scrub at 5 months old

Scrub at 5 months old

Scrub is a 6 month old Mauxie. He is the sweetest dog I've ever owned! He has such a calm temperament and a sweet personality. He is not loud and is very good with children. He digs blankets and his bed, and chews rawhide bones, but is not destructive with anything around the house.

He loves to have his belly rubbed and to play with his stuffed animals. He's not much of a guard dog because he would rather lick you than bark at you and he is friendly with all strangers.

I couldn't ask for a nicer pet. He lives in a small apartment and runs laps around the house when he is hyper. He is a very good apartment dog. If all Mauxies are like Scrub, I would recommend them to anyone.

Punchek or Crazy Girl

Our little Mauxie girl is a bundle of energy and has never met a person she didn't want to greet and lick. She loves to play with our cat and sometimes even wins the wrestling matches.

Our Maltese Dachshund mix is such a blessing to our life and so much fun to spend time taking for walks and playing.

My Mauxie - Champ

by Gaby Larkin
(Lindenhurst, NY)

The Best Dog Ever!

The Best Dog Ever!

My Mauxie's name is Champ. He is now 3 years old and weighs 12 pounds.

He has so much personality and he's loved more and more each day. He likes to bark at people/dogs that walk by but his bark is bigger than his bite. He loves plenty of attention and he is always entertaining us at home.

Would recommend this mix to anyone. He is like our little baby and he is no trouble at all.

Best of Luck

Champ looks just like my Buddy did NEW
by: Joe

Champ is very beautiful and looks like my Mauxie did. Unfortunately my Buddy just passed away and I would like to buy another Mauxie since Buddy was such a wonderful companion. I am having such a hard time finding one and was wondering if you could tell me where you purchased yours since I also live on Long Island.

Mauxie
by: Anonymous

I have two Mauxies! They were a total accident. My sister rescued a Maltese and her Daschaund was in heat... the rest is history! They are amazing dogs, very smart. I would recommend getting some training because of their curious nature. I have never been a happier pet owner!

She's a little terror, but my Mauxie so full of love that it's hard to stay mad at her! Her hair has changed from dark browns and black to lighter browns and cream, and my Mauxies hair grows fairly quickly. She's a great little dog, but patience is required!

Mauxie Update - Gracie Lou

by Susan Ford
(Amarillo, Texas)

Gracie Lou Freebush Ford - Miss Behavin

Gracie Lou Freebush Ford - Miss Behavin

I first posted a picture of my Mauxie puppy Gracie Lou for Valentine’s Day 2008. This is an updated picture at 2 years old. I call her Miss Behavin for this picture, because you can really tell she must be in trouble! Actually, she had just come home from the groomers and was rolling all over the couch and created such static electricity, she turned out like this.

Since I posted such a sweet picture the first time, I thought everyone would enjoy seeing the “other side” of a Mauxie! She is such a little clown and is still the love of our lives. She is so smart and her vocabulary recognition is unbelievable. We have to be careful of what we say sometimes. Of course her recognition is very selective. Sometimes she decides to go totally deaf and not hear a word we say.

During this first 2 year period, Gracie changed in looks 4 times, totally different each time. At birth till 8 weeks or so, she was very dark brown and slick haired and went to the multi-colored curly hair at 10 weeks or so (like her first picture). At about a year, her hair was long and straight and had a lot of white and blond and her face looked square (weird). She looked like a little old man. By 2 her face elongated and she is mostly white. Mauxies are really like a box of chocolates in one little package. You never know what you’ll get (for sure).

When I posted her first picture, I mentioned the trouble with her one leg/foot where the bones were not growing at the same rate and she had a limp when she’d first wake up from sleeping. We worked with our vet and he recommended we hang on till she was 1 year 2 months old, at which time her bone growth should slow/stop and we’d see how she was doing. If the limp worsened or she appeared to be in any pain, we’d have to do something else. Fortunately, she quit limping entirely and she holds her foot straight when she walks. I think we were very fortunate indeed.

I can’t express how much we love our Mauxie Gracie Lou and recommend this mixed breed for anyone!

Mauxie Lovers Unite!

The mauxies I've seen did lighten up. I too would love to have a discussion board of some type and would even share email addresses, if I knew how to do it. I know Maltese Maniac has to be extremely careful for security reasons. Any idea how Mauxie lovers could "connect"?

I'm smiling hugely as I see this photo of your Gracie in motion. It's great to get an idea of what my little Chica will look like when she gets older. Do most Mauxies lighten up as they get older?

Why not start a discussion board? As a new owner, I'd love to connect with other Mauxie mommas and daddies.

Our Mauxie, Gracie, is the greatest dog ever! She is about 2-1/2 yrs. old and is so sweet. She is very laid back and friendly. She has never snapped at a baby or child not matter how many times they pull on her ears or poke her in the eyes. She loves to lick, especially anytime she can get you in the face :-) We are so glad we got our Mauxie when we did!

Such a Cute Little Girl!
by: Anonymous

Gracie is sooooooo cute! She really does look so much like our Gracie Lou. Her beard is a little darker, but that's about it. We have her with the same haircut that you are showing. It just doesn't look like it in her static hair picture. lol We leave Gracie with the full run of the house when we are gone. She doesn't get into any trouble that we can tell. However, my husband and I are both retired now and she is not alone very long. We've gone shopping for about 4 hours... at the longest and she's okay. She's very excited when we get home. Sometimes she gets so excited she has a little trouble breathing (snorty/gaspy sounding) that just lasts a few seconds, if I just pick her up and tell her softly to quiet down. That's about the only problem we have. Thanks for sharing your picture too!

She is the BEST dog I've ever had. She loves other dogs. Aside from being an alarm barker (we're working on that), she's no trouble at all. Very affectionate, sweet natured, obedient.

I got her from a woman in Shoreline, Wash. She was born Nov. 25, 2006. If anybody else got one of her litter mates, I'd love to meet you!

Mauxie - George

by Carol
(Longford, Tasmania, Australia)

George

George

George was given to us last week, he is 10 months old and we were told he is a Mauxie. I would say from his coloring and appearance that the Dachshund is the strong gene and not the Maltese. I had not heard of Mauxie's before so i did not know what to expect. George is so sweet, he is lovable and a little mischievous he plays with our 2 yr old Labradoodle and they have loads of fun together.

I am wondering if he will change in looks or coloring as he grows older and when will he stop growing?

George
by: Little Miss Muffit

George totally fits this little dog--really a cutie. Muffit is a Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie). She was brown and blackish when born with white toes. I took her home just shy of 8 wks. and she was already lightening up to brown and gold. By the time she was three to six months old, she was cream with gold. And at just past a year whe is cream with just a touch of gold to her ears. She now looks more like a Westie as her ears stand up. With mixes you never know what you'll get. But if George is this color at 10 mos., I doubt he will change too much. If he does, it will be a lighter shade. Muffit weighs 7 lbs. and seems to be fully grown. These Maltese crosses make the best ever pets.

Mauxie - Sylvester

by Eric
(Southeastern Pennsylvania)

Full Shag mode

Full Shag mode

Sylvester was a Christmas gift for the family from our late Nanny. Our Mauxie has a very calm temperament and was easy to train. Housebreaking was very easy as he learns very quickly. When our daughters were younger they would dress him up and take him for rides in their stroller. He never "complained" but took it with grace.

Many people we know use Sylvester as the standard as they search for their own dog. He shares the house with two cats, and knows his place. Our black cat is the "queen" and likes to tease the our Mauxie, as he is afraid of her. But when it's nap time the dog and two cats are often found curled up on our bed together.

Rex is a 2 month old female Mauxie, her father was a Maltese and her mother was a toy Dachshund. She is one out of a litter of 5. She is very hyper yet loving and understanding. Our Maltese Dachshund mix is doing well with potty training, and is super smart. She started answering to her name in just a day! We are thinking our Mauxie could have long hair but still not sure, she is white with some brown spots (her mother was brown).
