A cross between the Maltese and the Shih Tzu, the Mal-Shi is a happy and intelligent breed. They love their families and get along well with children of all ages as well as other dogs and even cats. The Mal-Shi is an extroverted breed and can be quite gutsy. With the high-strung tendencies of a Maltese and the aloofness of the Shih Tzu, the Mal-Shi is an outgoing and friendly dog. Their intelligence makes them easy to train but they can be a bit bratty if pampered too much, so early training and socialization is necessary. They are a moderately active breed but can adapt well to any living situation, making the Mal-Shi a great addition to any family.
