The Maltipoo is a popular designer breed that is a cross between a Maltese and a Poodle. They are known for their cute and fluffy appearance, with a soft and curly coat that does not shed much. Maltipoos come in a variety of colors, including white, cream, apricot, and black. They are typically small in size, weighing between 5 to 20 pounds, and standing about 8 to 14 inches tall.
Maltipoos are known for being affectionate and friendly, making them great companion dogs. They are intelligent and easy to train, and they love to play and cuddle. Maltipoos are also hypoallergenic, making them a good choice for people with allergies. They have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years and require regular grooming to keep their coat looking its best. Overall, the Maltipoo is a lovable and playful breed that makes a great addition to any family.
Designer breeds are hybrid dogs that are created by crossing two purebred dogs to achieve a desired combination of traits from both breeds. The "F" in F1, F2, F3, etc. refers to the generation of the cross, with F1 being the first generation, F2 being the second generation, and so on.
F1: An F1 hybrid is the first generation of the cross between two purebred dogs of different breeds. For example, a Goldendoodle (Golden Retriever x Poodle) is an F1 hybrid.
F2: An F2 hybrid is the result of breeding two F1 hybrids together. The puppies in this generation have more genetic variability than the F1s.
F3: An F3 hybrid is the result of breeding two F2 hybrids together. This generation has even greater genetic variability than the F2s.
Each generation of the hybrid cross can have different characteristics and traits, as the genes from the two parent breeds can be expressed in different combinations. It's important to note that designer breeds are not recognized by major kennel clubs and do not have established breed standards. As a result, there can be a lot of variation in appearance, size, and temperament even within the same generation of a designer breed.
If you suffer from allergies, we recommend a first or second-generation Maltipoo. Otherwise, come in person to spend 15-20 minutes with the multigeneration puppy to see if you feel any allergy reactions as some may have small traces of similar but different breeds.
