Often called ?the cutest dog ever?, the Maltipoo (also called Maltepoo) is cross between a Toy or Miniature Poodle and a Maltese.
Adult Maltipoos have a lifespan of around 12 years and weigh in at around 10 lbs. So, they are practically lap dogs.
Here are a few characteristics of the Maltipoo temperament that you should know if you are considering taking the plunge.
*Friendly and Good-natured
The Maltipoo tends to be very friendly to both humans and other animals. This makes visits by friends to your apartment relatively stress-free events.
Like a number of other small dogs, the Maltipoo is constantly on the move. Maltipoo puppies can be quite a handful, but even adults retain a number of the puppy characteristics (that most find adorable), one of which is the proclivity to activity.
While Maltipoos are ?apartment? or indoor dogs, the typical Maltipoo does very well with regular walks.
In fact, in the absence of the mental and physical stimulation that is part and parcel of a trip around the neighborhood you could well find that your Maltipoo resorts to ?bad behavior? ? whining, barking and chewing ? in an attempt to get rid of his excess energy.
*Intelligent and Amusing
If you are in need for a pick me up, your Maltipoo is just what the doctor ordered. When you look square into the eyes of one, you just know that he is an intelligent clown. You will be smiling within minutes of entering the front door after a hard day?s work. Maltipoos love to mock play around you.
Their high intelligence makes them amenable to early house training, but like with other intelligent breeds, they do require their quota of mental stimulation. You really do need to be on the ball with house training because this is not a breed that can be left in a crate while you are out working long hours.
