Mal-Shi Puppies for Sale in Florida

A cross between the Maltese and the shih tzu, the Mal-shi is also sometimes called Malt-tzu or Malti-tzu. While they aren’t considered a standard breed, they are recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club and the Designer Dogs Kennel Club. Their size depends heavily on the parents, but they usually fall between 10 and 20 inches tall and 5 and 15 pounds. Their coats generally have the texture of the Maltese with the coloring of the shih tzu, and they need to be brushed and clipped regularly to avoid tangles.

Breed Characteristics

Mal-shis get their playful personality from both parents and are known for their social, affectionate natures. They are very adaptable dogs and do just as well in a family with children as they do in a home with one person. Mal-shis are excellent companion dogs for the elderly and can be trained to provide emotional support to their owners. While they do have a decent energy level, their small size means keeping them active is as easy as letting them out into a fenced yard or playing a short game of fetch in the house.
