Description: A Malti-Pom is a hybrid that is a cross-breed of a Maltese and a Pomeranian and may demonstrate any combination of traits from those two breeds. Hybrids have become very popular in the past few years. They play a big role in the current designer dog trend. The experimentation of these hybrid or designer dogs has not been recognized by the American Kennel Club or Canadian Kennel Club. The key to cross breeding to purebred dogs is what is called hybrid vigor, the breeding resulting in a healthier dog with superior genetic constitution can come from dogs purebred for so long that they have common genetic disorders. The Malti Pom is an active little dog bred from Maltese and Pomeranian. There are great with children, friendly to animals and trainable. They like new things and are curious and playful. They are small dogs, little enough to be carried at times. They love trips in the car and rolling in the mud. But they are also fine with being dressed up fancy and groomed to the hilt.
