What is a maltipoo and where did the name come from.
Maltipoo breeds are a cross between a Maltese and a poodle. The name for the breed has its origins in two words, “malti” which is short for Maltese, and “poo”, which stands for Poodle (Maltipoos look like they have black fur but it’s actually their natural color).
This popular dog breed also goes by other nicknames including malt-a-poo or ma-lt-poos among others.

Height Range of Male Malts/Poos:
Males can grow up to 15 inches tall while females reach 14 inches at most. Some maltipoos may be taller than typical dog breeds, but they are not too large or heavy.
Height Range of Female Malt/Poo:
Females can reach a height between 13 to 15 inches tall at most. They tend to stay smaller compared to their male counterparts. However, some females may grow up to 18 pounds in weight and still remain very playful dogs that don’t need extra exercise time (because this breed is so active).
Maltese Poodle mixes typically live 12–15 years on average. But the good news is that malti-poos have become more common as pets for many families all over the world today which means you will likely find other owners who share your love for this unique mix breed. You can also find forums, blogs and other social networking sites where you can meet these dogs owners for advice or tips on how to raise your maltipoo pup (a great way to make new friends).
How Much Do Malti-poos Cost:
Average price is around $400-$800 per puppy but prices vary depending on the breeder/seller.
Typical Height of a Full Grown Male Malts/Poos:
Males grow up to 15 inches tall at most. Females can reach 14–15 inches tall in height as well but are much smaller than their male counterparts; females only weigh between 11–18 pounds when fully grown (they’re like Toy Poodles so don’t expect them to be as big as a full-sized Golden Retriever).
