      About Mal-Shis

      Originally developed in the 1990's in Australia, the Mal-Shi is a cross between the Maltese and the Shih-Tzu. This is an easy, adorable breed that is ideal for a variety of lifestyles. Mal-Shis are easy to train, friendly, and happiest when by your side. They are outgoing, great with kids, and can also excel at therapy work because of their easy-going, delightful demeanor.

      Did You Know?

      While their parent breeds are quite yappy, most Mal-Shis don't bark very much, unless it's to alert a stranger coming to the door.

      Origin of the Mal-Shi

      This low-shedding companion dog has succeeded in the past decades despite not having a ""cute"" name like many designer dogs.
