Maltese Mixed Breeds

 Maltese dogs are very one of the most friendly and dependent pups that are always great to have around!

They are one of the oldest breeds in the world today. In the past, the Maltese were known as wealth and luxury pups! Maltese were the cuddle fur ball of choice Marie Antoinette and Elizabeth Taylor.

It’s also believed that ancient Greeks worshiped the Maltese, as they’ve even been depicted in famous paintings through time.

Today, many different Maltese mixed breeds roam the earth. Below are some of the most common breeds of Maltese that we know today!

1. Maltipoo (Maltese/poodle)

Malteagles are great to have around anyone! They are kid-friendly and are affectionate little pups! Though they are a little challenging to train because they do tend to be stubborn.!

6. Maltichon (Bichon/Maltese)

The Maltichon are one of the most fearless creatures yet very gentle with their family. They are one of the most common Maltese mixes and are great therapy dogs! Be sure to use that as an excuse to get one 😉

7. MaltiPug (Maltese/Pug)

Unlike some of their counterparts, Maltipugs seem to have long hair that are a great suit for hair commercials – just look at that shine!

Speaking of long hair, these rock stars love to play and party! This little Pomeranian mixed breed in particular loves to travel the outdoors.
