Crested Malt
(Crestese) (Chinese Crestese) (Crested Maltese)

Chinese Crested / Maltese Hybrid Dogs


The Crested Malt is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Chinese Crested and the Maltese. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Recognized Names:
American Canine Hybrid Club = Crested Malt
Designer Dogs Kennel Club = Crested Malt
International Designer Canine Registry® = Crested Maltese


This is Rocky Balboa, a black-and-white tuxedo pattern Chinese Crested powder puff / Maltese mix (Crested Malt) at 11 months old and about 11 pounds. "He is SO playful and SO affectionate, and is the happiest when he's cuddling up against you or on top of you!! He got his name because when I first saw him, he was standing on his hind legs pumping his front paws at the other dogs and everyone around...hence the white paws were his boxing gloves. He still does this everywhere he goes and gives quite a performance for everyone!"

Not only is he the cutest little thing, but he has the best personality. He blended immediately with his new family of 2 Greyhounds, a Golden Retriever mix and a terrier mix. He weighs in at just under 6 pounds now and is anticipated to mature to about 7 pounds."
