Mal-Shi Puppies for Sale

All available puppies pictured below are here in Oxford, Massachusetts

The Malshi is a designer hybrid between a Maltese and a Shih Tzu. This is a hypoallergenic breed meaning it is low to non-shedding making it great for those with allergies.
Their coat should be soft and silky in texture. They require daily care and brushing to keep tangles and mats from forming. Some people choose to keep the dog in a shorter "puppy cut" making grooming easier but it still requires weeky brushing. Regular baths can help keep the coat silky and soft. 
Tearstain underneath the eyes is not uncommon in this breed. Regular cleaning of the eye and commcercial tear stain removers can help keep the staining to a minimum. 

These dogs are happy and intelligent making them easy to train. Malshis are affectionate companions who loves being with their family. 
It's not recommended for homes where the dog would be left alone for long periods at a time, since they can suffer from separation anxiety, like most companion breeds.
Minimal daily exercise is reccomended like a short walk around the block or a game of fetch. They love the outdoors. 

Malshis are a wonderful choice for elderly people and first-time owners. 

Malshis have an average life span of 12 to 14 years. They stand 10-13 inches tall and are 6-12lbs as an adult.
