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.
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.
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.
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.
The coat of the Mal-shi is typically long, straight, and dense. They may or may not have a double coat.
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.
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.

I have Mal-Shi - Malshi puppies for sale! See My Profile
I am a very small in-home breeder and all of my dogs are very well cared for and are very social and well adjusted. Each of my dogs is treated monthly for heartworm and flea control. My vet comes to my home yearly to provide rabies vaccinations and all other immunizations needed. My dogs are free to come in and out as they please thru their doggie doors. They all have their special toys and enjoy their sweaters in the winter. Their environment is a constant 76 degrees and their areas are cleaned daily. My dogs and puppies are never caged unless it is to go to the vet or airport. All my dogs and puppies are very social and love attention. All puppies come with a full health cert/vet exam, current immunizations, de-worming according to vet schedule and each comes with a little blanket with mom and sibling's scent to help with the transition. All will come with a Eukanbua puppy kit and a small bag of Iams puppy food. I charge a flat rate of $250.00 for shipping. I offer a full health guarantee on all of my pups. I have never had any complaints and I invite all my customers to view the testimonial page of my website. These are real customers that have provided real testimonies. I encourage anyone buying a puppy from me to visit me and see where the dogs and puppies are being raised but I also know this is not possible for all and I will work with you any way I can to ensure you have as much information as possible before purchasing a puppy from me. Please feel free to visit my website at, my email address is, and my home phone is 254-646-3375 and my cell is 817-964-8874. Please feel free to call or email if you have any questions or concerns.

Anonymous asked:
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. It's safer than Angel Eyes. Angels Eyes has an antibiotic in it that dries the dog out. Not healthy.

Is there a triple mix meaning a Maltese, Yorkie, Shih Tzu mix?

1 Comment


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.

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

1 Comment


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.
