He is super soft and cuddley! but prince... Ugh! lol

  • I used to have a maltese and he was precious, but not very good at training. He would run out the door every time someone came in our out. That is how he died. He ran out and got hit by a car. Now I have a chihuahua and a Pomeranian. I sooooo adore them. They are more mindful and train easier. They stay in when I tell them to. lol

  • Six weeks is too young.

    I hope you didn't pay too much for your MUTT.

  • sorry never heard of them before. I asume its a maltese poodle. Can I ask if you bought it? I remember when I was younger when a maltipoo was a mutt and would be free, but I hear of people gushing how they saved a ton of money and only paid $300 for thier mixed "poo"
    but I bet its cute
