Its important to remember with any designer cross-breed, that temperaments and personality will vary from puppy to puppy, due to a number of factors, environment and parents temperaments. However, Maltipoos are generally well-known for their fun-loving ways. They are also very intelligent, so training them is a fairly easy task! It is for this reason that they make lovely pets for first time owners. Additionally, they absolutely adore 'hoomans' and love nothing more than spending their day by their owners side, whether it's accompanying you to the shops, or cuddling up on your lap. They are also very alert by nature, and make excellent watchdogs. Overall, they are gorgeous and loving family pets that have the potential to provide you with years of joy and happiness!

A relatively new 'designer' cross breed, the Maltipoo is thought to have been developed over the last ten or twenty years. They were created as a response to 'hoomans' wanting a dog that was more unique than other breeds, possessing distinctive physical characteristics. The Maltipoo is a cross between a Maltese and a Toy or Miniature Poodle and it's also claimed, although not proved, that cross breeds are hypo-allergenic and prone to fewer health issues. However, as a new breed, pups will vary from litter to litter with very different physical and mental traits. For example, some may look more Maltese like in physical appearance, whereas others maybe more playful, in likeness to their parent, the Poodle.
