Let’s start with the obvious. The Maltese is a purebred dog and the Maltipoo is a hybrid dog. In order for a dog to be considered 'purebred' he must be a descendant of known purebreds of the same breed. Most purebred dogs are registered with a kennel club, but it is not required. The clubs were created to keep a guideline that dictates the expected size of the dog, coloring, ear set, tail set etc.. This helps keep a consistent appearance within the breed.
Because maltipoos are a hybrid between a poodle and a Maltese, your puppies weight can vary from 5 to 20 pounds with a height of 8 to 14 inches. The size will also depend on whether a poodle parent was a toy or miniature.
