Overview
The Mal-shi, also called the MalteTzu, is created by the crossing of two breeds: Maltese and Shih Tzu. They are commonly referred to as "designer dogs" and have become popular companions.
Character
Sturdy, well-built, and compact, the Mal-shi is agile and lively. They exhibit a keen expression and hardy appearance.

Does your Mal-Shi - Malshi bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The ideal Mal-shi is affectionate, loving, and devoted. They should be playful, spunky, and clever. They do best in a home with older, considerate children. They generally do well with dogs and non-canine pets. Mal-shi's are wary and suspicious of strangers and are quick to alert their family to visitors and out of the ordinary sounds.
Care
The Mal-shi requires daily brushing to prevent matting and tangling. Bathing should be done when necessary using a mild shampoo. The ears should be cleaned regularly to prevent infection. Dental hygiene is important to prevent early tooth loss. They may be prone to such health issues as slipped stifle, skin problems, eye and respiratory problems, and spinal disc disease.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The coat of the Mal-shi is typically long, straight, and dense. They may or may not have a double coat.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are recommended. The Mal-shi may be stubborn and difficult to housebreak. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Mal-Shi - Malshi puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Mal-shi is well suited for apartment living provided they are sufficiently exercised and mentally stimulated. They are able to meet the majority of their exercise needs indoors but enjoy securely leashed walks, family play sessions, and off-lead play time in a securely fenced yard. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Does anyone have any suggestions for tear stains on a Mal-Shi? I have a white with a little reddish color Mal-Shi and the tear stains are awful. I have tried so many things, but nothing seems to work. Any suggestions?

I have found that Angel Eyes works wonders for tear stains on our Malshi.

Tearplex is rated the highest on the Internet. http://tearplex.com/ It's safer than Angel Eyes. Angels Eyes has an antibiotic in it that dries the dog out. Not healthy.

When mixing breeds of dogs, there are risks to the health, temperament and overall structure of the dog. However, the mixture of different breeds of dogs does happen. With the specific mixture you are looking for, you may have a hard time. However, you can look at breed specific rescues, as they will take in their breed and their breed if it is mixed in with it.

What does not AKC recommended mean?

The American Kennel Club is for pure-bred dogs. They believe in well bred pure-bred dogs. Since the Mal-Shi is a mixed breed dog, the AKC cannot and will not recommend a mix breed dog to someone.

I want to get a Malshi, but I would like to know how tall they get?

The Maltese average height for a male is 8 - 10 inches and female at 8 - 9 inches. While the Shih Tzu's average height for a male and female is 11 inches at the shoulder. So a Malshi should be in between the two average heights.

Cocobug asked:
Do Malshis bark a lot? I know small dogs tend to be this way, but I live in an apartment where loud barking would not be a great option. I love this breed but do they bark a lot?

They are a super quiet breed, except when people are at the door. My Malshi is 2 and still has a hard time quieting down after your guests have entered.

My Malshi puppy is 1 1/2 years old and he is super quiet, unless there are people outside my house.
