The Moodle, aka Maltipoo, is a toy breed dog that comes from mixing Maltese and Miniature Poodle genetics. Their coat is usually a little scruffy and curly, but it is often fluffy and feels like wool. Moodle’s shed little to no hair, making them an ideal pet for people with allergies.
Due to amount of hair they have, Moodle’s need daily brushing and professional grooming every month and a half. Non-regular grooming can cause health problems for this breed. Moodle’s usually come in cream, white, silver, or a mixture of all.
Moodle’s usually only grow to about 20 cm and can weigh anywhere between 2 kg and 9 kg. Their average life expectancy is 12 to 15 years.

Moodle’s are known for being intelligent, loving, laid back dogs that like the occasional meet and greet with others. Their low energy levels cause them to take the relaxed approach with life and you can often find Moodle’s lying in the laps of their owners or going for short walks. That’s not to say that they don’t like playing! They love playing with their owners.
They are easy dogs to train because they are very intelligent which makes them a great dog for first time dog owners.
Moodle’s get along with children very well, however, children who play rough can easily cause physical injury to the Moodle because they are so small and fragile. The Moodle’s relaxed nature makes them an ideal companion to other animals in the household.

It is known that the Moodle was created by mixing Maltese dogs with Miniature or Toy Poodles. They were cross-bred to be a hypoallergenic dog; however, people have reported that this breed sheds some fur on occasion.
This breed is not officially counted as a true breed, but a club called the North American Maltipoo/Maltepoo Club & Registry was formed due to the love and popularity surrounding the dog.
Moodle’s don’t have deep historical roots themselves, however, it is recommended to look into Maltese and Poodle’s history to trace back their lineage.
