Thread: What breed is he?

  1. #1

    Default What breed is he?

    Hi All,

    I acquired Archie a couple of years ago from a lady who said he was a maltese.. however i'm not too sure he is..atleast fully anyway.
    When he has a short haircut you can see spots all over.. but these aren't nearly as obvious when his fur is longer. (They are on his fur though not just skin)

    Any ideas? I am not a breed connoisseur so thought i'd ask around He is around 4kgs

    Definitely not full Maltese. Maltese only come in pure white.

    My guess is Maltese X Shih Tzu... but there's no way to know, especially with these little fluffy mixes.

    Because of the black markings on your pup – Yes, you are correct in thinking he is not a purebred !

    Maltese always come in just white – as ‘maddogdodge' said – but can have slight lemon markings – but that is it !

    LOL – I did discount the dirt on his nose – even though it was black !

    Does it really matter ?

    As far as the crosses involved with your pup – my best guess would be Chihuahua first and then maybe Chinese Crested – only because of the skin spots and colouring.

    Please don’t bother wasting your money getting a DNA Test done. The test probably would come back to say that a BC was involved in that breeding of your pup !
