What Is a Lhasa Apso and Maltese Mix?

A Lhaso Apso and Maltese mix is the offspring that results from the mating of these two types of purebred dogs. The offspring of a Lhaso Apso and a Maltese is a crossbreed that is commonly known as a Lhatese.

Like its parents, the Lhatese is a small dog that typically weighs between 7 to 13 pounds. The dog has thick hair and needs regular grooming. If grooming is not done every day, the coat may start to become tangled. The color of the coat can vary greatly, and common colors include white, brown and black. Lhatese dogs are energetic and enjoy regular exercise and playing with their owners.
