About the Mal-Shi
The Mal-Shi is a hybrid dog that is made up of a combination of two different purebreeds. It's a cross between the Maltese and the Shih Tzu. We've found the best method for understanding the characteristics of the Mal-Shi is to read both of its ancestors descriptions taking note of their temperaments, size and general look.

This breed mats easily. Daily brushing is recommended. Most owners choose to use a slicker brush.
The Malshi enjoys space to run and play. If a yard is not available, leash walks may be required.
If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of DogProblems.com. 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.
