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 New Mexico?
New Mexico has some room to grow when it comes to its animal-friendly laws and accommodations. On the plus side, a few New Mexico cities are super dog-friendly, and the state is a great destination for visitors traveling with their pups.
Let’s look at a few studies into New Mexico’s dog-friendly rankings.
Animal advocacy group Pawsafe ranked New Mexico as the 35th most pet-friendly state of all 50 states. They examined several factors, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails. Unfortunately, they didn’t rank New Mexico very well for its animal welfare laws, which address things like animal abuse, neglect, or even fighting.
Another study by a safety review website, Safewise, actually ranked New Mexico last of all 50 states. The ranking has a lot to do with animal welfare laws and access to pet services.
Overall, we’re hopeful that New Mexico makes some improvements for its dogs and dog lovers!
