Maltipoo – An Adorable Pet that Can Make Your Days Special
No matter whether you are fascinated about a large or small breed of dogs, you can’t say a ‘no’ to the Maltipoo dogs. If the breed seems unfamiliar to you, it can be because of the name. You must have seen this dog in your neighbor’s designer dog kennels or somewhere else carried by their parents and the feeling of love must be provoked in your mind.
If you are planning to get a Maltipoo at home, here, it is high time to learn more about the breed.
This is basically a manifestation of the American dream dog come to life. This is a mix of Maltese and Miniature of Toy Poodle. The breed is originated in America. It is not recognized by AKC yet. A cross of poodle and Maltese made the best of both the genes.
It is an excellent companion which is smart, charming and loving by nature. It looks adorable and by its looks and nature, it steals everyone’s heart. The breed may live up to 15 years.
It weighs from two to 15 pounds and it is only eight to 14 inches tall. Coats are generally long, straight or curly. You can get a wide array of variation in terms of its color including fawn, shades of brown, gray, peach, cream and white. Many of these dogs are bi-colored as well. Generally, they have dark eyes, but sometimes those are hazel or light brown as well. The tear staining changes the color of their coat on their face. Like the poodles, they have tear-stained eyes.
Due to the long coat, the dogs need to brush daily for keeping it tangle-free and without mats. Soft brushes need to be used for them. Often, their fur is clipped as well to keep them tidy and cool in the hot weather. Generally, clipping twice a year is enough for the dog. However, the head needs regular trimming for keeping it clean and soft. The groomers use mild shampoos to clean them and keep them fresh.
Food and Nutrition
As it is a small breed, the requirement of food is smaller than the other dogs. Even after they grow up, they need less food than the other dog breeds. Being an active dog, it needs regular activities. The activities need more calories. Hence, when it is a pup, it may need a little more food than usual. You have to keep in mind not to overfeed the dog to keep it healthy. For the food and other nutrition, you consult a vet and get a diet chart for it that may vary with age.
Like other dogs, Maltipoo also needs exercise to stay fit and healthy. It has medium to high energy so you can allot 30 minutes of walk per day. The mental stimulation is also provided with the exercise otherwise they can be bored and mischievous.
