A Maltipoo is a cross between a Maltese and Miniature Poodle.
The Maltese is a very intelligent dog. They are well mannered, very affectionate and are small in size, usually weighing less than 7 pounds.
The Miniature Poodle stands 15 inches or less at the shoulders and is also a very intelligent dog. Poodles have been known to excel in obedience training.
The benefit of crossing these two dogs are that you get the best of both breeds rolled into one. Grooming is much simpler being that the coat of the Maltipoos will be fluffy, with minimal matting and easier to groom. The Maltipoos will weigh approximately 5-10 pounds.
