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 Kansas?

Kansas is a great state for dog lovers. The “sunflower state” compares well to other states for things like animal welfare regulations, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.


We looked at two important studies ranking each of the states by these pet-friendly factors. The first study was conducted by Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group. In their study, Kansas is ranked as the 11th most pet-friendly state. The state scored very well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


The other study was conducted by Safewise, a consumer review site for safety across the country. In their study, Kansas is ranked as the 12th most pet-friendly state in the country!  


Combining these two studies places Kansas towards the front of the pack of pet-friendly states.
