We’ve Got Precious Maltipoo Puppies
Maltipoo puppies are a new designer dog that beautifully blends the Maltese and the Miniature Poodle.
They are gentle natured, and friendly dogs – not to mention they’re downright cute! Want to learn more? We’ve put together some helpful and interesting facts about Maltipoo puppies.
There are two important things worth mentioning about the beautiful coats of Maltipoo puppies. Firstly, they don’t shed or produce as much dander and most dogs. Both the Maltese and Poodle share this trait, so it’s only logical that this dog would be as close as they come to be a hypoallergenic dog. Secondly, the Maltipoo puppies will require consistent, regular grooming and a great deal of maintenance. The Poodle’s coat is naturally curly, and the Maltese’s coat is naturally wavy. Even though it’s pleasing to look at and play in their hair, this combination is rather difficult to maintain without professional grooming.
This breed is surprising because you really don’t know what you’re going to get – besides a cute, loving ball of fun. There are some Maltipoo puppies that look mostly like a Maltese. There are some Maltipoo puppies that have really curly hair and resemble Poodles more than anything else. This all really depends on their parents. Their colors will vary as well, but their sizes will be about the same. Full grown Maltipoo puppies weigh anywhere between 5 and 15 pounds, with a lifespan of 12 years.
As we’ve previously mentioned, the Maltipoo puppy is a crossbreed between the Maltese and Poodle, so trying to predict and standardize their personality and temperaments can be tricky. Research has shown that, in general, they are friendly, loyal, and energetic dogs. Both the Maltese and Poodle generally display those characteristics, so responsible and reputable breeders have the opportunity to mix a delightful breed if done correctly.
