The playful, friendly Mauxie is a relatively new designer hybrid that recently emerged during the 21st century. The Mauxie is currently registered with the American Canine Hybrid Club, the Designer Breed Registry, the Designer Dogs Kennel Club, Dog Registry of America and the International Designer Canine Registry. This is a new hybrid and its history and origins remain unknown, however, it can be speculated that the purpose of their creation is for their beautiful aesthetics and companionship.The Maltese is an affectionate little dog that is actually considered an ancient breed since archaeological and genetic findings trace it back to Malta over 6000 to 8000 years ago. These breeds are believed to have originated in Malta, although they have been depicted in various archaeological findings across Egypt, Greece, and Rome. As these breeds are ancient it is difficult to figure out their ancestry; however, breeders believe that the Maltese may have descended from the Spitz and other Spaniel breeds. The strong-willed Dachshund can be traced back to the 15th century where they were used mainly to hunt and drive badgers, foxes and wild boars out of hiding. Over decades, breeders began outcrossing the Dachshund with various small Pinscher and Pointer breeds in order to generate a fearless, long dog that would be able to dig through dens in order to hunt prey.
