Papitese Characteristics

The Papitese, or Maltillon, is a perky, adorable designer hybrid mix between the Papillion and the Maltese. These two highly social companion dogs combine to make a popular house pet. They're also a great candidate for apartment living due to their size and low exercise needs. The Papitese has a cheerful face and playful manner that's eager to please and be loved.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability

Standing between 8-10 inches and weighing between 6-10 pounds, the Papitese is truly a small dog. It is important to teach children how to play with such a breed appropriately in order to prevent potential injuries to the dog. However, what these dogs lack in size, they make up for in spirit and personality and will return all the love you give ten-fold.  
 
The Maltese heritage typically makes the Papitese hypoallergenic, but these dogs still shed a little bit and will require regular brushing and grooming to keep stray hair at a minimum around the house. These dogs are most popular in black or white coats but can be found with light brown markings as well.
 
Like other small dogs, the Papitese might think it’s big enough to pick a fight with a big dog. Early socialization will help – and you should introduce your pup to larger dogs under supervision. 
 
Overall, the Papitese is extremely intelligent, affectionate, and even acrobatic! They are wonderful companions for almost any size and type of family.
 

How dog-friendly is Idaho?

We have to be honest that Idaho has some areas to improve in its dog-friendly status. But not to worry, the state does have some great highlights! It’s a stellar travel destination for people who travel with their pets and has some very dog-friendly cities. 


Overall, the two leading studies rank Idaho as 36th and 47th for pet-friendliness. Since there are only 50 states, this isn’t the best. The studies compare states by their adherence to important factors like pet-friendly accommodations, access to pet services, animal cruelty laws, and even pet-friendly outdoor space. 


Pawsafe, an animal welfare site, ranks Idaho 47th. Idaho lags behind other states mainly because of its lax animal cruelty laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Safewise, a safety review site, ranked Idaho a little bit higher as the 36th most pet-friendly state in the country. Combining these two studies together puts Idaho towards the middle of the pack of pet-friendly states.
