Malti Pom - Maltipom Questions

I can't find much information on the internet but I will be breeding my Pomeranian bitch with a Maltese dog. Could I have some information on breeding them, how many puppies do they have? How much do they sell for in the UK? I can't find any for sale in the entire UK.

My Maltipom puppy will not eat his food, any recommendations?

Answer:
Any change in behavior, especially a dog or puppy not eating is a sign that it is time to go to the vet. A.S.A.P.

I have a question about the breed mix of a Maltese and Pomeranian. I heard somewhere that even if the puppy has brown coloring as a baby, the hair eventually grows and changes to white as the dog becomes an adult, leaving no more of the brown. Is this true?

Answer:
Every dog is different and some can have their fur grow out and they become all white. While others don't change color at all or even get darker.

My Maltipom does not want to eat. What is the best food for them?

Answer:
A grain-free, high quality puppy food is the best thing to feed your dog. Some brands to look at are Acana, Origjn, Taste of the Wild, Life Mates, Now and Go! They all have a 'small bites' to choose from as well.
