User added info

As with all mixed breed dogs, a Malchi can look more like a Maltese or more like a Chihuahua. Some are a perfect mix between the two breeds and have the longer hair of the Maltese with the pointed ears of the Chihuahua. They are not quite as big as the Yorkie but more like the size of a small full grown Chihuahua. They are fragile and their bones may be broken easily.

The Malchi is known to have a gentle disposition but may be protective of family and often barks at strangers. The Malchi is an ideal family pet and desires love and affection. Given its desire to please and commitment to owners, its an ideal pet for seniors. This breed is intelligent and exceptionally sharp. Training is a breeze for most owners. This breed does require daily exercise, but is suited for apartment living. Some may describe this breed as a giant dog trapped in a small breeds body. The Malchi is full of heart, fearless, sassy yet strive to please their owners.

General Health

Some will have digestion and intestinal issues that require medium to high fiber diets. Others are prone to eye issues.

Cleaning of their teeth is important. Daily brushing should be done to avoid tarter and decay. Lack of cleaning will lead to extractions at a young age.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.
