General info

This cute little dog is a cross of a Maltese and a Toy or Miniature Poodle. Clever, playful, and affectionate, Maltipoos retain their puppy-like looks and behavior well into their teen years. The coat can be scruffy or curly and comes in a variety of colors, although it is most often white or cream. Because of their size and good nature, they make wonderful companion and family dogs, and can adapt themselves well in small places like apartments.
