A popular designer toy dog, the Mal-Shi is a cross between the Maltese and Shi Tzu. Also known as the Malt-Tzu, the breed was designed to be a low-shedder and makes for a very popular companion pet as they are easy to train and a delight to have around. The Mal-Shi's coat is long, soft and silky with a bit of wave. Mal-Shis are usually white or white with tan markings but they can be a combination of other colors including black, brown, black and white, brown and white, and black and brown. The Mal-shi is an adaptable, intelligent dog. They are likely to be active and outgoing, if not downright boisterous, but occasionally you find the laid-back and quiet personality. Your Mal-Shi will need some exercise, like a daily walk or a spirited game of catch.
