These dogs take on the temperament of both Silky Terriers and Maltese. They are spunky and cheerful little dogs.

Most are very intelligent and eager to learn; which makes them easy to train. Maltese Silky Terrier dogs also make good watch dogs, but are curious about everything and tend to be very active diggers.

They are great with children and other dogs, but tend to chase cats and other small pets because of their high prey drive. Most people find Maltese Silky Terrier puppies to have an energetic and sociable personality.

A Maltese Silky Terrier dog can have various mixtures of hair color, hair type, and size. Most will include some brown, black, tan, or silver.

Hair is usually long and silky. These dogs are prone to tangles and mats, therefore they need daily combing and brushing. A professional grooming every 4-8 weeks is ideal.

They are also nonshedding and most are hypoallergenic. Full grown Maltese Silky mixes can weigh anywhere from 6-12lbs.
