For the most part, they are very laid back, easy to get along with dog. But with that being said, training a Maltipoo is not always an easy task.
Maltipoos come in three sizes: teacup Maltipoos/teacup Maltepoos (also known as tiny Maltipoos), tiny toy Maltipoos, and toy Maltipoos. They can be found in a variety of colors, though light colors are more common. Their coat is either curly, straight or a combination of both.

Maltipoos can make great therapy dogs and have an uncanny instinct to gravitate towards an ill or needy person, whether that be a child or an adult. Maltipoos are also great with kids, and are an excellent choice for a retired person.
