Maltipoo temperament

Affectionate and Loving: Maltese dogs were designed to be companions and will never tire of human company. They adore their humans and love to be the center of attention. The flip side? They can struggle with separation anxiety.

Sensitive: Maltipoos can be sensitive to changes in their environment or their owners’ emotions. They may require gentle handling and positive reinforcement during training.

Good with Children: Due to their small size and friendly nature, Maltipoos are generally good with children. However, as with any dog, interactions should be supervised, especially with younger kids.

Hypo-allergenic: With Maltese and Poodles both being low-shed and low-allergen breeds, Maltipoos are considered hypoallergenic dogs and one of the best options for people with allergies! However, allergen levels differ between dogs (even within a breed), and no dog is completely allergen-free. Please consult your healthcare provider before adopting a puppy if you have allergy concerns.

Apartment Friendly: Maltipoos vary in size (5-20 pounds), but even a large Maltipoo is small enough to live happily in a small house or apartment!

Easy to Train:
Because Maltipoos love their people so much, they are fairly easy to train. They are eager to please and do well with positive reinforcement. They are bright and catch on quickly. To them, training is all fun and games as long as there are people involved!

Although small, Maltese dogs can make good watchdogs. They are alert and aware of their surroundings and will let you know if anything is out of the ordinary. Consistent training can help keep nuisance barking to a minimum.

As always, individual dogs can vary in their personalities even within the same breed or crossbreed. Spending time with the puppy’s parents and engaging in proper socialization and training practices can contribute to raising a well-mannered and happy Maltipoo.

Maltipoo Breed history

Maltipoos are a cross between a Maltese and a Miniature Poodle or Toy Poodle. Here’s a bit of history on both breeds.

The Maltese breed has had a lengthy (and Mediterranean!) history. They have been around since the time of the ancient Egyptians making it one of the oldest toy breeds.

Nobody knows the exact origins of the breed. But some believe that it developed on the Isle of Malta, in the Mediterranean Sea, from Spaniel and Spitz breeds. Others say that it originated in Italy or Asia.

Wherever they originated, these winning canine aristocrats charmed human nobility the world over. They graced the laps of Egyptian pharaohs, Roman Emperors, and Greek Tribunes.

Later, they became the favorites of European nobles such as Good Queen Bess, Mary Queen of Scots, and Queen Victoria. They were also popular among French nobles.

In the 1870s, English breeders further developed the breed, and it became known in the United States. The American Kennel Club recognized it as a breed in 1888.

Although Poodles are the national dog of France, they originated in Germany, where they were bred and used as retrieving water dogs. At that time, the Poodle’s showy haircut was practical – it allowed the poodle to move about easily while hunting while still protecting certain parts of its body, such as the paws, chest, and head.

With its elegance and intelligence, the poodle became a popular breed among the French nobles and in other parts of Europe. Because of their trainable, attention-loving nature and showy looks, poodles were often used in the circus. They have also been used to hunt truffles ( underground mushrooms) with their long snouts.

The Standard Poodle can be downsized to the Miniature and the Toy Poodle. If they are well-bred, each breed is a replica of each other.

Today, the Miniature Poodle is the most popular size of poodle, and the three sizes together rank ninth in the breeds registered with AKC.

Maltipoos were bred in the last 10-20 to create a breed for allergy sufferers.

Maltipoo Average size

Maltipoos are 8-14 inches tall at the shoulder and can weigh anywhere from 5-20 pounds.

Average Maltipoo lifespan

A Maltipoo’s expected lifespan is 10-13 years.

Maltipoo body features

Maltipoos can be a variety of colors but are usually white, cream, or tan. They can have silky coats like a Maltese or curly coats like a poodle. 

They are known for their cute, round faces and bright, big black eyes that can melt the hardest of hearts.

grooming Your Maltipoo Puppy

Maltipoos will need to be brushed often – depending on your dog’s coat – it may need daily brushing. 

They will also need regular haircuts to prevent matting and tangles. Again, this will depend on your Maltipoo’s coat; a Maltipoo with a poodle-like coat will need a hair trim about every six weeks. 

Maltipoos are prone to getting tear stains around their eyes. These are not harmful, merely unattractive. Wipe their eyes with a damp cloth regularly to prevent the discharge from staining their coat.

Keeping Your Maltipoo Puppy Healthy

All dogs have the potential to develop health problems. Maltipoos are no exception. Here are a few of the things you should watch for:

  • “White Shaker Dog Syndrome” – Your dog starts shaking uncontrollably and may lack coordination and experience rapid eye movements. Common in white dogs.
  • Low blood sugar – symptoms may include weakness, confusion, or seizure-like episodes. This is especially common in puppies.
  • Portosystemic liver shunt – A liver problem to which Maltese are prone. It may require extensive surgery.
  • Luxating patellas – or slipping kneecaps; is common in small dogs. Watch for limping or skipping when your dog walks.
  • Epilepsy – this can be managed with medication but cannot be cured.

Like all dog breeds, they are susceptible to hip and elbow dysplasia, two of the most common health issues among dogs. Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the leg or hip becomes weakened, and it can result in arthritis or potential lameness if not addressed.

One of the best ways to prevent this is by keeping your dog from running too much on hard surfaces, especially when they are puppies.

Typical Maltipoo Allergens

Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells. Both animals and humans shed dead skin cells. Dander is attached to the hair that animals shed. 

Maltipoos were bred for allergy sufferers and are considered hypoallergenic. If you suffer from allergies and are looking for a pet, a Maltipoo is an excellent option for you to consider. 

However, there is no such thing as an entirely hypoallergenic dog; and different dogs have different amounts of allergens. 

If you or someone in your home has animal allergy concerns, please talk to your family doctor before adopting a puppy.

  • 1. Are Maltipoos yappy?
    Maltipoos can definitely turn out to be barkers if you don’t train them right. The good news is that with proper training you shouldn’t have problems with barking.
  • 2. Are Maltipoos hard to groom?
    Maltipoos have fluffy, wavy coats. They need daily brushing to prevent matting and tangling, and they will need a trip to the groomer once or twice a year for a trim. You’ll probably need to trim around her face more regularly. Maltipoos will take some grooming care, but overall it is not an unmanageable amount.
  • 3. Are Maltipoos truly hypoallergenic?
    Maltipoos are considered one of the best dogs for allergy sufferers as they shed very little and don’t tend to aggravate allergies. However, there is no such thing as a truly hypoallergenic dog, and if someone in your home has allergy concerns you should talk to your doctor.
  • 4. Can you leave a Maltipoo alone?
    Maltipoos are companion dogs and they thrive best when they are around their families. However, with good training, you can leave your Maltipoo alone for several hours at a time. If you go on a longer trip, it’s probably a good idea to get a dog sitter.
  • 5. Do Maltipoos snap?
    Maltipoos are not an aggressive breed, but keep in mind that all dogs have the potential for aggression. If your Maltipoo is well-trained and well-socialized you shouldn’t have problems with nipping and snapping.
  • 6. Are Maltipoos hard to potty train?
    Housetraining can be difficult with small breeds, but thankfully, Maltipoos are on the easier side of the spectrum when it comes to housetraining. With time and patience, you should be able to get it figured out.
  • 7. Are Maltipoos one-person dogs?
    Maltipoos make great family dogs! Some may choose one special person they like best, but this is not a standout characteristic of the breed.
  • 8. Can you keep a Maltipoo outside?
    Maltipoos are companion dogs and they are happiest when they live right with their family. You can put your Maltipoo outside for short periods of time, but they are not meant to be full-time outside dogs.
  • 9. Are Maltipoos high-energy?
    Maltipoos are not hyperactive, but they will need exercise. Daily play sessions or short walks are a must. The good news is that Maltipoos do not have excessive exercise needs—a 10-15 minute play session should do the trick.
  • 10. Are Maltipoos good with kids?
    Maltipoos have a good attitude about kids, but they are not recommended for households with very young children. That is because these dogs are small and fragile, and a young child could easily harm them with rough play. They thrive best in households with older children who know how to handle them.
