The Maltese Chihuahua Mix – Introducing The Malchi is a breed of dog originating from Mexico. They are known as the Mexican Shepherd Dog or simply as “Chi” dogs. They have been bred for their size and physical characteristics since ancient times. Today they are one of the most popular breeds in the world.
In recent years, they have become very popular in the United States due to their small size (about 15 pounds) and their ability to live outdoors without problems. Their coat is short and silky smooth with a long undercoat which provides them protection against cold weather conditions. They are known for being loyal companions who love children and other animals, but do not usually tolerate strangers.
They are often referred to as the “little shepherd dog”. The Maltese is a medium sized dog, although some are larger than others. Males tend to weigh between 25 and 35 pounds while females range from 20 to 30 pounds. They reach sexual maturity at around 8 months old.
They attain sexual maturity at about 5 years of age. Their average lifespan is 12 to 15 years.
The Chihuahua is a breed of dog of the terrier dog type. It is one of the smallest dog breeds in the world. The Chihuahua is heavily associated with Mexico, and was originally from the state of Chihuahua. They get their name from the state, but the breed wasn’t initially from that area.
