Q&A

I just got my Sophie 16 days ago and we love her to bits! She's a very lovable, smart dog. She was born Nov 14/09, so she's just over 14 wks old. My only thing is though is that to me she really doesn't look like other maltichon's I've seen. The lady I got her from owns the mom which is a 12 lb pure breed bichon (has papers) and her friend's dog was the dad which is a 6lb maltese. I have no reason to believe she would lie but I wonder if the maltese has something else in him. There were 6 pups born, 3 with curly hair, 3 with straight hair. Sophie has straight hair (although it goes wavy when wet) and she currently weighs about 41/2 lbs. I would love any comments/thoughts on whether she looks like a maltichon. Also, she does shed a bit right now but they could be stress or the fact that she now goes outside and its cold here so maybe getting a thicker coat?? Comments??

I have a 4 month old maltichon and he weighs a little over 4 pounds. I also have a bichon frise. When I went to pick out my maltichon they all looked different, so it may just be that they are mixed between two breeds. I think some just take on different characteristics. Mine looks like a mini bichon right now, except he has straighter hair that my bichon. I hope this helps some.
