Is the Maltese / Poodle (Miniature) Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Maltipoo

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The Maltese / Miniature Poodle mix is an adorable choice that has become quite popular because both parent breeds have non-shedding coats. Owning one of these breeds, or the mix between them, can be an option for some people with allergies to consider.

Appearance / health:
Since it isn't a purebreed, there can be some variation in the appearance of the Maltipoo. You can expect a small, potentially long-lived dog in a choice of colors.

Behavior / temperament:
These cute, affectionate, and easy-to-handle little dogs can be good apartment pets.They may not like being home alone, which might make them a good choice for retirees.
