Maltipoo Dogs 101 Maltese Poodle Designer Dog Mix

Often called “the cutest dog ever”, the
Maltipoo is an affectionate designer dog. A mix of a Poodle and a Maltese, he is friendly
and outgoing, believing that everyone he meets is his best friend. People can’t resist his soft coat and spunky
attitude. A Maltipoo is a gorgeous dog for anyone who
wants a fun and friendly companion. And, he’s great for those living in an apartment
or a condo. Hi, Welcome to Animal Facts, today we look
at the delightful, designer dog, the Maltipoo. Let’s get started. But before we start, take a moment to like
and subsribe for more fun, fauna facts. Let us know about your doggy in the comments
below. 10. Originating in the US, the Maltipoo was created
to be a small and affectionate companion dog. He was bred to be a wonderful pet that would
fit into any family’s lifestyle. The plan was to develop a dog that was hypoallergenic,
low-shedding and highly trainable. The original breeders hit their mark. Clever, playful, and affectionate, Maltipoos
retain their puppy-like looks and behavior well into their teen years. As a hybrid breed, his name is not quite standardized
yet, although most call him Maltipoo. Malt-A-Poo is the 2nd most common name for
this dog. This is used by the American Canine Hybrid
Club and also by the Designer Breed Registry. The names of Moodle, Maltese-Poodle, Malt-oodles
and MaltiPoodle have all but disappeared and are not used by the majority of breeders,
who are striving for a more standardized name. 9. He’s a people pleaser and the Maltipoo tends
to enjoy going for walks and playing with balls and toys, both indoors and out. If you train a Maltipoo with positive reinforcement
techniques, showing him what you like by rewarding him with praise, play, and treats, he’s
likely to learn quickly and will enjoy showing off the tricks he knows. He also tends to be easy to potty train. 8. The combination of a purebred Maltese and
Poodle has brought about a wonderful generation of non-shedding and hypoallergenic dogs. However, this does not mean that dog lovers
with severe allergies should run out and buy one. All it means is that those who suffer from
allergies may not react as badly to him as to others dogs. Allergy sufferers should spend time with a
Maltipoo dog before adopting. 7. The Maltipoo is a delightful looking little
dog. His head is nicely proportioned with the rest
of his body. He has dark, round eyes and short muzzle nicely
finished off with a dark nose and dark colored, tight lips. His ears are set high and wide apart, falling
forwards when alert or excited, but hanging down to the side when he is relaxed. 6. Maltipoos can have the tight curly coat of
the poodle or the long, wavy coat of the Maltese or anything in between. They can come in a variety of colors, some
examples are black, blue, gray, red and silver, but white and apricot remain among the most
popular. 5. Why would someone choose a designer dog over
a purebred dog? First, crossbreeding tends to produce a middle-of-the-road
temperament that often fits better into the average household than the more “extreme”
temperaments of many purebred dogs. Next, crossbreeds (assuming those breeds are
not similar to each other) tend to be at lower risk of genetic disease than purebreds., since
they don’t inherit two copies of defective genes from their parents. This is especially true of first generation
designer dog that is purposely bred rather than randomly mixed. 4. A Maltipoo has an average lifespan of 12 years
so don’t worry about being outlived by your pet. With a proper care and careful maintenance
of the dog’s health, you can expect your pet’s lifespan to extend to 14 to 16 years. 3. Unlike pure breeds, the Maltipoo has no proper
weight range. Nevertheless, the unofficial weight range
is 5 to 20 pounds though there are some dogs that are an exception to the rule. 2. Maltipoos are fond of doing exercise, playing
and walking outdoors. However, your pet is mostly an indoor pet
and it may not tolerate being outside for extended periods of time. Since it is not a large dog, you need to keep
an eye on him when going outside. 1. The Maltipoo is best suited to families where
the children are slightly older because he can be a little snappy around younger children
that might play a little too roughly with him. If well socialized from a young enough age,
the Maltipoo generally gets along with other dogs and with the family cat. However, they would not think twice about
chasing off any other cats they come across. Want more fun, fauna facts? Go ahead and smash that subscribe button and

    Hey any maltipoo owners out ther I was wondering if you had any insights on the breed. I am looking to get one and just trying to do the best research. I already have one dog(Maltese) do they generally get along with other dogs, how much exercise do they need, do they bark a lot etc. also I know there is no specific weight range but on average what is the size of your maltipoo because 20 pounds is not a good size for my living situation. Thanks for any responses I get it is really helpful

    I love my Maltioo, Toby. He is a good, well- behaved pet. He was easy to potty train. He is trained to let me know when He needed to go outside. He will come to me and then walk away, and come back…repeating this until I take him out. He is also trained to potty on a poo-pad when I am not at home. He is very protective of me. If anyone comes near me, or to the front door, he will bark… He has 3 small doggie beds: one on the sofa, one on the floor in my office, and another one at the foot of my bed. He wants to be wherever I am. I feed him 2 X's a day, I cook his meals. The recipe is very easy and simple: In a medium size sauce pan, I add 1 can of mixed vegetables, I large can of white chicken breast meat, (both are undrained), to this add 3/4 cup of any kind of uncooked rice. Stir this together, and cook on medium heat until rice is completely cooked and the vegetables are soft, stirring frequently. If needed you can add some chicken stock or water and cook until the veggies are soft an tender, stir frequently.
    Allow to cool. I put into small serving zip lock bags and freeze them… I can leave him to go the grocery store, and when I get back home? he is right where you left him.Maltipoos are great house doggies.

    I have a Maltese terrier. I live in an apartment. Lately, I have been wanting a second pup to the family. since Maltese pups have a bit of a problem with potty training from my experience and the internet. I wanted a dog that was easier to potty train and got along with other dogs. (my dog is a bit on the aggressive side) So far this looks like the best option yet. If any of you guys know a better breed I would be happy if you would help.

    My multipoo is about the size of a miniature schnauzer. He is super fun, but due to us poorly potty training him, he has to wear a diaper that covers his…thing…
    We got him when my sisters were pretty young but he has never snapped at any younger children. He has a white coloring with peach-ish spots that aren’t very noticeable until you’re around him more often. He gets along great with my over-grown miniature schnauzer, has made friends with a miniature pinschure (sorry I’m not the best at spelling), and even tries to become friends with my rag doll cat!
    The only time he is aggressive is when my mini schnauzer is barking at people and other dogs, and even then he’s just trying to act all cool by barking but eventually just hides in a bush. He’s not the fittest but he definitely is not chubby. He has a ton of fur that has a weird mixture of straight and curly.
    He honestly is the best friend I could ever ask for ♥️
    I do recommend this breed to people who are looking for a playful yet lazy pup to have around the house

    I have 3 maltipoos, 2 females & 1 male. Best dogs ever.. cuddly, playful, but they do tend to be barkers & will chase squirrels in the yard. Great with kids !! They all have very different personalities, even though the females are sisters. One is shy & bashful, the other very outgoing & loves everyone & everything in the world! The male is a rescue who had been on the streets for several years.. he is very layed back and just grateful to have a home! Very well behaved!! There are many maltipoos that need to be rescued.. please give them a chance!! 🐶🐶🐶

  24. Crystalfire says:

    These dogs are amazing. I have one. She’s an angel, plain and simple. They are well proportioned and are generally pretty fast runners. She has never had health issues so far. Also, I’ve noticed that she will match my mood. She is all for laying on the couch watching tv, or running around outside with me. They are beautiful dogs and are not bred to have health issues. Such as pugs who are terribly bred and end up costing you thousands in vet bills. If you are getting one and already have a large dog, be sure that the large dog is gentle. My maltipoo can get hurt pretty easily. Also, they have a HIGH prey drive. She gets along perfectly fine with my cat, but when she sees a bunny it’s full hunter-mode activated

  29. Christine Fussell says:

    I have had maltipoos for the last 8 yrs. after my first I just wanted more and more and would never think of getting another breed. We now have three maltipoos and they are truly the best dogs ever. They are great with our children, a breeze to potty train (every one of them we have had), they are playful but know when it’s time to chill, The are extremely loyal and all three are my best friends. We have a little girl who is tiny and two males who are average in size. I would say a small medium size (maybe 15-17 pounds). The only time they bark is when they are doing there job or when we are playing with them but quickly stop when told to. I could go on and on about how great our three babies are…but if your watching this video, chances are…you already know! Maltipoos will always be in our lives. If there’s any questions I can help anyone out with, please don’t be afraid to contact me at [email protected] LIVE THE MALTIPOO’S!
