User added info

Maltipoms are a mix between a Maltese and a Pomeranian. The ears are the size of a Maltese but they stand up like a Pomeranian. The hair is smooth like a Pomeranian but long like a Maltese. These dogs average 5-8 pounds full grown. They do come in a variety of colors from cream, black, black and white, brown and then solid white.

Character


Pomeranian's are territorial and one owner whereas Maltese are easy going and love everyone in the family. The mix is quite wonderful because they are very loving to everyone but they do have a favorite human. They share with other dogs and wait their turn if it's feeding time. Some may attempt to become the alpha dog, depending on the mix of dogs in the home.

Maintenance


They do not shed much except in the spring. The coat is easily maintainable because of the Pomeranians influence. The coat grows long but is thinner than that of a Maltese. It is easy to comb through. The hair on their spiky ears grows especially long and for many that is the appeal of this breed.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of DogProblems.com. Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.
