The Maltipoo is a winning combination of a Maltese and a toy Poodle. The Maltese are gentle and quiet with soft fluffy white hair. They love to be beside their humans and follow them around the house and yard, watching the activity. Poodles were originally bred to be working dogs. Because of this, they are fast learners and want to please their owners. Poodles love to snuggle close and be the center of attention.
The Maltipoo hybrid inherits positive qualities from each parent breed. Due to their sweet disposition and nearly hypoallergenic coat, Maltipoos are growing in popularity. They are gentle, playful, affectionate, and highly intelligent. Maltipoos are patient, kind companions for everyone, young or old. They will fit right into almost any home, whether it is a busy family circus or a table for one. A Maltipoo won’t get bigger than 20 pounds. Easy to train and love, Maltipoos are an excellent choice for a first-time dog owner or long-time animal lover.
