Mal-Shi Breed Appearance
The Mal-Shi is considered to be a toy-sized dog. He rarely gets over twelve pounds at maturity, and only stands about 10 inches high. Inheriting the luxurious locks of his parent breeds, the Mal-Shi will also have long, flowing, straight hair. It will be silky, and some Mal-Shis may have a slight wave, a nod to the Maltese parent breed (especially when cut short, the Maltese will have wavy hair). Generally, the Mal-Shi will be all white in color, or he may be white with tan markings on his body and ears. Of course, the Mal-Shi may be a variety of colors from black, brown, black and white, brown and white, and black and brown. This will depend on the dominant parent breed and its coloring.
