The Maltese Shih Tzu, also known as the Mal-Shi, Malti zu, and the Malt-Tzu, is a dog breed hybrid. One of the few “designer dogs” not originating with a Poodle, and therefore not one of the ubiquitous “Poo” or “Doodle” hybrids, the adaptable Maltese Shih Tzu is an adorable, sweet little guy with a long name. Created with the same goal as the Doodles — to be a small companion who doesn’t shed much and is therefore more appropriate for people with allergies — the Maltese Shih Tzu is a classic cross, a sweet lapdog who likes to play with the kids.
