Shih Tzu Maltese Mix - Penny

My Penny

My Penny

Penny is a Shih Tzu Maltese mix and my perfect puppy. She is 13 months old and very little, she only weighs about 4 pounds! She loves to play tug of war and she does what we call "puppy races." She runs around in circles in the living room until she tires herself out.

She is great with little kids. My 8, 3, and 1 1/2 year old niece and nephews love to play with her and she plays really well with them. Penny is very affectionate too. She loves to lay down on my lap and gives lots of puppy kisses. At night, she cuddles up with me on my bed and sleeps with me until morning. My Maltese Shitzu puppy sees me as her mommy. If there is a loud noise or something that scares her she will run to me instead of anyone else, she will always choose my lap over any others.

Our Mastiff (Beasley) loves her. He just follows her around the house. She teases him though. It's so funny to watch them play together because she isn't even as big as his head!

Shih Tzu Maltese Mix - Buhba Bear

by PAMELA STIEREN
(STERLING, NEBRASKA)

We picked our Shih Tzu Maltese mix out at 4 weeks. When we took him home at 12 weeks he looked like a "real" black and white stuffed toy. He was the only boy in a litter of 6 and weighs in at a whopping 2 lb. I held almost all of the puppies. He was the only one who licked my hand.

When we first got him home he was extremely calm and quiet, not like a normal puppy. We worried there might be something wrong with him; but that quickly changed.

My Maltese Shih Tzu mix has a period of playfulness (playing with his toys and of course our shoes.) I put my shoes on the couch last night so he wouldn't chew on them. When he noticed them he started barking at them as if they were a stranger. When I put them on the floor he stopped barking; then started again when I put them back on the couch. (really funny).

He especially likes my granddaughter's balls and chases them all over the house. After he has played for several minutes he crashes and sleeps for awhile, then the cycle starts over again.

He is doing fair on housebreaking. Still has some accidents, but at least now they are usually by the door and almost always because I missed his hourly time outside.

At first, he hated being kenneled which I do a couple hours a day, but now he doesn't seem to mind. It was so funny yesterday to see him try to get into his kennel with his favorite toy (froggy). He tried repeatedly but froggy and he wouldn't fit through the door at the same time.

He loves to jump and I caught him climbing my step ladder the other day. I'm sure it won't be long before he is jumping up on everything.

My Shih Tzu Maltese is really alot of fun and keeps me real busy. He fills a place in my heart I didn't even realize was empty.

Shih Tzu Maltese Mix - Toby

Our Shih Tzu Maltese mix is almost two and is very much a part of our family. He is spunky at times but also loves to take long naps on the back of the sofa after playing. He often "grooms" himself like a cat would by washing his face with his paws. Toby is very lovable and is a real licker when he's happy! Our Shih Tzu Maltese even lets our 10 month old grandson pull on his hair without getting upset. He LOVES his squeaky toys and was easy to potty train by rewarding him with treats each time he went outside. Sometimes he "asks" to go out just so he can get a treat!! If my husband or I is sitting down, Toby is always on top of our lap. He is truly a LAPDOG. Good thing is not too big... about 10 lbs.

Shih Tzu Maltese Mix - Lilly

by Liz
(MI, US)

I've had my Shih Tzu Maltese mix Lilly for four years now and she is quick learning and extremely friendly, she can sit, lay down, play dead, paw shake, pound it, and park it, she can dance and speak, and has outsmarted an animal cage trap. She snorts like a pig when she eats and she loves food, she likes to visit our neighbors, and during the summer time we let her run to their door where she paws at the door till Mr. Hood or Mrs. Hood hears her to let her in. My Shih Tzu Maltese mix loves jumping in the snow, and when you pick one of her ears up that side of her mouth snarls up but even though it bother her shell let you do it. She is white and light brown and is extremely adorable.

Luna is a spunky and sweet black Maltese Shitzu. She loves to play and gets shy around new people and things. She is only four months old and already is almost potty trained. She is the nicest puppy and the perfect size.

We have trained her to sit, lay down, and she can do this cute 360 flip that shes been doing since she was younger. She has the cutest lips and big beautiful eyes. She is pure black and some brown hair is growing in.

She's my first puppy and I could not be happier. My Maltese Shitzu mix Luna is perfect.

Rajah is a very loving, playful and alert Shih Tzu Maltese mix! He loves to sing to reggae music (LOL)! He is extremely affectionate and can be a little spoiled at times. He is very alert (nosey)! He does not miss anything! He can be stubborn at times and a little hard headed. My Shih Tzu Maltese mix is very attached and makes friends with people and other dogs and cats very easily. If he does not like you, something is wrong!

Shih Tzu Maltese Mix - Jake

by Lisa
(Charlotte,NC)

My Maltese Shitzu Jake is a great joy. He is almost 3 months old and is clever, fun and also laid back. He has been pretty easy to potty train - makes minimal errors in his cage and or the house and sleeps though the night w/out any accidents.

Sometimes Jake likes to lay on your chest and chill out and other times he is so playful it is hard to keep with him. He follows you everywhere and loves to chew on his toys.

I just love him!

Cindy is our 8 year old Shih tzu Maltese mix and has the best temperament of any dog we had had. She loves all other dogs, plays with our cat, and just loves our 6 grandchildren. All our grandchildren are under 7 with the youngest being 2 year old twins and Cindy loves them all. They can play with her, dress her up, pinch her bones, anything, and she just wags her tail.

She goes to the toilet on command and sleeps soundly in her own bed at night and does not wake until we wake her up.

Our Shih tzu Maltese is well known in our neighborhood and all the children pat her. She is the best companion!

Where my lunch???

Where my lunch???

Our Shih Tzu Maltese mix Bella is the cutest sweetest dog I've ever had. She white with grey tipped ears and weighs in at 10 lbs. Bella does not have a mean bone in her whole body. Bella is so playful and sweet She is also the best watch dog nothing gets past her. We're down in South Fl. where you can take your fur baby most anywhere you go. Our Shih Tzu Maltese mix has a pink stroller so we take her to the Malls and shopping most of the time. More people fuss over her than any baby in their strollers.

I hate the purebred snobs that look down on our little mixes. She has the best of both breeds and is just beautiful!!!

Shih Tzu Maltese Mix - Lucy

Is Lucy a Shih Tzu Maltese Mix?

Is Lucy a Shih Tzu Maltese Mix?

My dog Lucy was a rescue. The Rescue group said she is a Shih Tzu. I'm not so sure. After looking at some of the pictures on this website I'm beginning to think she is a Malshi. She looks a lot like a dog named Millie featured on your site.

Lucy is very smart but stubborn. She is almost a year old ( they believe). She puts everything in her mouth and chews. I had to dog proof the house but she still finds things to chew. Her most recent victim was a Star Wars Wookie. She loves to play especially with squeaky toys.

My biggest challenge is stopping her from chewing on my fingers. She doesn't bite hard or break the skin but she gnaws and licks. She thinks playtime is 24/7.

Is Lucy a Malshi? Look at her pictures and tell me what you think?
