Maltipoo

Customer service and communication were both great. The puppy arrived in good condition/health with all necessary documents. The first free vet appointment was a plus. And the app helped to keep track of the dog's arrival.

Maltipoo Characteristics

There’s no other way to say it – Maltipoos are the cutest. They are a popular crossbreed of the Maltese and Poodle, which gives them a fuzzy fluffy coat and adorable big eyes. Maltipoos are a smaller dog and shed infrequently. They have high energy levels and require moderate exercise to stay healthy. They are a fun-loving, affectionate breed perfect as companions for new pet owners, young families, and empty nesters.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Accommodating

As a crossbreed between a Maltese and Poodle, Maltipoos can come in a wide variety of colors, including black, gray, red, cream, white, fawn, apricot, chocolate, gold, and even yellow.

Maltipoos are fun-loving dogs with a lot of active energy. They love going for walks, playing games, and generally running around the house. They prefer being indoors with their humans and don’t need a big outdoor space to be happy.

Being companion dogs, Maltipoos need lots of human companionship. They may develop separation anxiety when you leave them alone too long or when they don’t get enough attention.

They're relatively easy to train, but you will need to be patient. Maltipoos are intelligent and learn quickly, yet they can react sensitively to overly-aggressive behavior. Be kind and gentle with all your pups!

A healthy amount of positive reinforcement and treats will help create a smooth training process and a wonderful companion. Being so affectionate makes Maltipoos a perfect choice for new pet owners. They are also popular among empty nesters. They love nothing more than snuggling with you on the couch.

Maltipoos are one of the smaller dog breeds. They can grow to weigh up to 20 pounds and 8 to 14 inches in height. Maltipoos are generally healthy and enjoy a typical lifespan of 10 to 13 years.

How dog-friendly is Iowa?

Iowa is a dog-friendly travel destination and has a lot of dog-lovers. But a few issues cause the state to rank rather poorly for dog-friendliness, particularly its lax animal welfare laws. 


We investigated two big studies ranking all 50 states by important pet-friendliness factors. The studies looked at things like pet-friendly accommodations, pet care and services, the number of dog parks or outdoor space, and animal welfare laws. 


The first study, by animal safety group Pawsafe, ranked Iowa as the 41st most pet-friendly state. The second study, by consumer safety group Safewise, ranked it as the 43rd most pet-friendly state in the country. The state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Combining these two studies together shows Iowa towards the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.
