Behavior

  • Temperament

    Malti-Shi puppies are affectionate, smart, happy, and loving pets that love being with their families. Because of their extroverted and social nature, this breed can be prone to separation anxiety, which should be dealt with early on. The Malti-Shi is also able to adapt to an active or quiet lifestyle—although it requires some daily exercise.
