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.

I currently have a 8 year old female Boxer that is so so special to me and we are looking at adding a Malshi female puppy to our family. We live in an apt. Is that too much for both Boxer and Malshi puppy or could this be a functional household???? Can Malshi be taught to go outside to go to bathroom?? Crate training work????

The mix-breed dog known as the Malshi can be crate trained and can be house trained. However, they are a very small dog. And Boxers are known for having a high prey drive. They are also known for their energy level. I would be concerned with the two dogs playing as the Boxer could accidentally hurt the Malshi as a puppy or even as an adult.

The Boxer breed is a 7/10 on the dog training intelligence scale, while the Maltese and the Shih Tzu are both 5/10's. So what that means for train-ability is that it will take longer for you to train a Malshi (Maltese/Shih Tzu cross). Crate training is a great way to house train a puppy, no matter what breed. As for you leaving, a young puppy will need to be let out every 2 - 3 hours. So if you plan on having to be gone longer than three hours; make sure you've exercised your puppy well before you leave so that he/she sleeps while you are gone. A young puppy should be able to hold it 4 - 5 hours while sleeping, and 2 - 3 hours while awake.

Do the Mal-Shi puppies get along with my grown cat/house pet? Would my cat feel abundant due to a dog coming in our home?

If your cat has never lived with a dog before, then it is going to take some time for your cat to adjust to a dog living in the house. A puppy, growing up with a cat will learn very quickly how to adhere to the cats rules of the house; so you don't have to worry about that. Make sure that your home have plenty of high up spaces for your cat to hide/retreat too when the puppy gets to be too much. As well as make sure the litter box is somewhere the puppy can not get too so that your cat can do his/her business in peace.

Do Malshi's live a long life span?

The average life span of the Maltese breed is 12 - 15 years, while the average life span of the Shih Tzu breed is 10 - 16 years. So you can estimate that a Malshi should live an average of 11 - 15 years.

Can you breed two Mal-shi's to produce the same breed as opposed to breeding a Maltese and Shi-Tzu?

The puppies would still be considered Mal-Shi's, but they would have Double in the front of the name to specify that they come from two mixed breed dogs. So the puppies would be called Double Mal-Shi's.

Anonymous

Just like with the Labradoodle cross, if you breed two Mal-shi's together, then they would be considered 2nd generation Mal-Shi's, not 1st generation.
