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.
