Is the Chihuahua / Maltese Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Malchi, Malachi

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 first generation Malchi is a cross between a pure Chihuahua and a pure Maltese, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This designer mix is intended to create a cute toy breed that's the right size for many families.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, in general the Malchi will be a cute litte "lapdog" sized mix.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, the Malchi's heritage means that it's likely to be a little dog with a large attitude that demands plenty of love and treats from its family. They will not be happy if neglected and ignored.
