Squirtie the Highland Maltie at 3 years old—"Squirtie is a Maltese cross with a West Highland Terrier. She has a very curious nature and is always on the look out for who ever may walk past her home. She is very out going and a well balanced family companion as long as everything is going her way! Loves to sleep on the bed until we get in and then her time is spent underneath guarding us all night. We love her!!!"

Description

The Highland Maltie is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Maltese and the West Highland White Terrier (Westie). 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.

"This is Cali, otherwise known as Cali Jo and Boo Boo. Cali is a female West Highland White Terrier / Maltese mix. She has the Maltese coat and petite features, but has the ears, energy and curiosity of a Westie. She goes on walks and exerts a fair amount of energy playing with her best friend Ace (a Black Lab mix). Cali is 18 months old and weighs 10 pounds in this picture. She has always slept with her human mommy, usually under the covers."

"This is Tulah. She is a Westie / Maltese mix. She is a very sweet dog. She looks like a Mini Westie. She is 7 lbs. and is just as spunky as a terrier, but when it comes down to it she's just as loving as a Maltese. Definitely the best of the 2 breeds."
