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 Washington?

Very!! Washington is consistently ranked quite high in lists of the most pet-friendly states – thanks to its pet-friendly restaurants, parks, and wonderful outdoors scene.


In fact, Safewise ranked Washington as the most pet-friendly state in the country. There are several important factors behind Washington’s rating but the strongest is the high number of pet-friendly rentals. Washington ranks second among all states with 55% of rentals accepting pets.

Is Seattle a good place for pet ownership?

WalletHub analyzed the 100 largest cities in the United States to find the most pet-friendly city. Their research looked at a variety of factors, with their primary focus on pet budget, health and wellness, and outdoor pet-friendly activities.


In the study, Wallethub graded Seattle as the 17th most pet-friendly city. The city performed well for pet health and wellness, and outdoor pet-friendliness, ranking 18th and 11th respectively. Pet care is more expensive in Seattle, so the city ended up in 70th place for pet budget. The study also found Seattle to have the highest number of dog-friendly restaurants per capita.


A study from the Trust for Public Land (TPL) showed that Seattle has the 20th highest number of dog parks per capita, with two dog parks per 100,000 residents.
