Mal-Shi Puppies for Sale in Maryland

If you’re looking for an adorable companion dog that has tons of personality packed into a small body, the Mal-shi is a great option. This cross between the Maltese and the shih tzu breeds is only 10 to 20 inches tall and 5 to 15 pounds when fully grown. They usually have the soft and wavy Maltese coat that doesn’t shed and only needs to be clipped regularly for maintenance. Mal-shis are generally some combination of black and white, although it is possible to see brown or tan creep into their coats.

Breed Characteristics

Mal-shis are incredibly affectionate and playful. They make excellent companion pets and are always ready to put a smile on someone’s face, whether that’s their owner or a stranger on a walk. These dogs are smart and trainable, and using treats and positive reinforcement is a good way to get around their sometimes-stubborn side. Mal-shis don’t always understand they aren’t one of the big dogs and may need to be protected from roughhousing with larger breeds or small children. They are more energetic than their small size would indicate and need a daily walk to reduce problem behaviors like barking and chewing.
