Maltipoos vary in size and weight from 8 to 14 inches tall and from 5 to 20 lbs., according to Dogtime. These dogs are a mixture of the purebred poodle and the purebred Maltese, which is why their size and weight varies as much as it does.
The Maltipoo is not considered a dog breed by the American Kennel Club and is considered a "hybrid" or "designer" dog. These dogs are typically playful, fun, energetic, ornery and can be hypoallergenic. However, it is important to note that all dogs produce dander that can cause allergic reactions in many people who are allergic to dogs, so the Maltipoo's coat texture will not help in this instance. It is recommended that all people considering adopting a hypoallergenic dog first get tested to see if a hypoallergenic dog will truly alleviate their allergy symptoms.
