Brown maltipoos are sometimes referred to as "chocolates" and "toffees" due to their color. No official colors exist, since the dog is not officially recognized as a separate breed, but a popular color for maltipoos is apricot. The dog's fur can be soft or coarse and wiry because of the different traits of the dogs used in breeding. They shed very little but still may cause allergies in some people.

These dogs are easy to train and are quick learners. They bark to alert their owners, but they may need to be trained to discern appropriate circumstances for barking. They typically get along well with other dogs.

Maltipoos live about 12 to 16 years. They are typically a cross between a Maltese and either a toy poodle or a miniature poodle.
