The entire experience was great! This is our 1st time going through a service like this and I was skeptical, but the entire process was so smooth. I loved the customer service from the team (Stromi), the continual updates via the app and most important finding our new family member that we are already so in love with!
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.
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 Michigan?
With its beautiful lakeside beaches and pet-friendly attractions, Michigan rates as quite a friendly state for our four-legged friends!
A study by animal safety site Pawsafe ranked Michigan as the 13th most pet-friendly state. Even better, the state ranked number three for dog-friendly attractions and activities. Pawsafe ranks states by evaluating the various dog parks, nature walks, local attractions, beaches, breweries, wineries, and shopping centers open to pets.
Safewise, another reputable site for animal safety, conducted a similar study in which Michigan was ranked as the 33rd most pet-friendly state. In the study, the state receives strong marks for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
Both studies evaluated states for factors like availability of pet care and services, animal protection laws, and pet-friendly activities.
