Pekingese Maltese Mix - Pek-A-Tese

AKA: Maltese Pekingese Hybrid

The Pekingese Maltese mix, also called a Pek-A-Tese, is a cross between a Pekingese and a Maltese.

They are one of the relatively unknown Maltese mixes, but are becoming more popular because of their loyalty and courageousness.

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 Pekingese Mix Personality

These dogs take on the temperament of both Pekingese and Maltese. They are loyal and protective little dogs.

  • Very opinionated
  • Difficult to train
  • Low energy, perfect for apartment life
  • Difficult to housebreak
  • Very affectionate
  • Good watchdogs

These dogs do fine with children and other dogs as long as they are properly socialized when they are puppies. Most people find them to have a courageous and affectionate personality.

Pekingese Maltese Appearance

This Maltese mix can come in a wide variety of colors, but are usually gold and white or black and white. Some are even pure white.

Hair is usually thick, long and straight. Therefore, they need daily combing and brushings. Some shed lightly, while others do not shed at all and are hypoallergenic dogs.

Full grown Pek-A-Tese can weigh anywhere from 7-12lbs, which is a few pounds heavier than a purebred Maltese.
