The maltipoo is a small or toy dog, since many specimens do not exceed 2-3 kilograms in weight. Its weight and size basically depend on the size of its parents and the predominant genetics in the puppy. The Maltioo is an intelligent, affectionate, and fun-loving dog that generally gets along well with everyone it meets. Maltipoos enjoy spending their days sitting on their owners’ laps or walking alongside them. They are excellent alarm dogs, but don’t count on them to provide any protection.
