Malti-Poo puppies are full of energy, curiosity and oh, so playful! Also known as Malt-A-Poo, Malt A Poo, Maltipoo, Maltepoo, depending on which registry you use, these little guys make great pets for singles, families and people of all ages.
Their size is determined by the parents. Most Maltese weight between 4 and 7 pounds according to the standard and a toy poodle’s ideal weight is between 6 and 10 pounds, although the standard only specifies height requirements. Some teacup toy poodles are even smaller, making the Malti-poo puppy very small.
Due to their small size, these dogs do great in small areas such as apartments or small condos. The puppies weight and size can fall somewhere between both parents. This is considered a hybrid or mix between a Maltese and a Poodle. Unless the poodle is white, you are unlikely to get puppies that are pure white as the one in this video.
These dogs are generally very fluffy, have either curly or wavy hair and shed little to none. They are an ideal solution for anyone with allergies because both poodles and maltese rarely shed and are mostly hypoallergenic.
They are extremely playful and will keep you entertained for hours. Except for the very smallest Malti-poo, they generally do very well with children. Supervision is always encouraged when dealing with young children and puppies.
