The Maltichon is a crossbreed of a Bichon Frise and Maltese. They look like soft fluffy cotton balls and are rapidly gaining popularity due to their looks and compatibility with other pets. The Maltichon makes a good watchdog and companion and because of their handy size and good behavior, they make ideal family pets that are very compatible with apartment living.

“Bichon frise” literally translates to “curly lap dog,” which is certainly an accurate description of these little white dogs! Made popular by their use as circus dogs, Bichons love attention and excel in learning and performing tricks. Bichons are lively, cheerful and unconditionally devoted to their owners. They also tend to be more allergy friendly, because they are non-shedding and have hair instead of fur. Bichons are playful and affectionate, are great with children and usually weigh 10-15 lbs. as adults.
One of the oldest of the European toy breeds, the Maltese has been a lap dog to royalty for centuries. This all-white dog has silky hair instead of fur, often making it more tolerable for those who are allergic. Maltese love to be pampered, cuddled and held, and typically form strong attachments. They are gentle and affectionate, and are easy to train, especially when training is started early. Maltese have a medium energy level and do well indoors or in Small Living Spaces. This breed is known to be by their owners’ sides at all times, and is sure to charm anyone they meet!
