Maintenance


Most Mauxies will need to visit the groomer about every six weeks and need bathing every three weeks. They do not need excessive brushing as their fur is soft and rarely mats.

Mauxies have medium to long fur, but they are not dense like long coats of Maltese. They require daily grooming because they can trap waste in their fur. If they are left uncombed, they will develop mats that can lead to discomfort. It is extremely important that Mauxies should get proper brushing every day along with professional grooming for every 6 to 12 week. While bathing should be done only after the pup gets dirty. Teeth and ears require regular cleaning to avoid bad smell, and it prevents infection or disease. Nails require trimming in every 6 to 12 weeks.

Does this breed shed? Does the Mauxie breed bark or whine?

My mauxie sheds very little. If he is brushed once a week, the hair comes out in the brush and I never find any on the furniture or floor. He is an alert barker.. if he hears voices outside or if the doorbell rings, he will bark. But it's not an excessive bark and as soon as the door is answered he will stop. He doesn't whine or howl at all. He is really the sweetest, most well behaved dog I have ever had. He is good with kids - but not a huge fan of the cats in the neighborhood. I'm sure if he grew up with one he would be fine. I would recommend a mauxie to anyone.
