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

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

Malchis are indoor animals. They should not be left outside too long especially in the winter months.
