"Highland Maltie" (Westie/Maltese)
There has been a large demand for "Designer Dogs." This is when you mix breed two different purbreds, also known as hybrids. Designer Dogs are one of a kind. Each dog is unique as they will have their own combination of characteristics of the Mother and Father. I breed the Wee-Chon, (Westie/Bichon), Maltichon (Bichon/Maltese), Highland Maltie (Westie/Maltese), and the Morkie (Yorkie/Maltese)
First let me say, I am not a puppy mill. All the puppies are raised right here in my home. The parents of the puppies are my own personal pets. I have been breeding for over 20 years. I love raising happy, healthy, loving puppies and sending them off to their new home where they will receive lots of love, and bring a lot of joy to their new families.
How a puppy is raised early on makes a big difference if what kind of adult dog it will be. Each puppy receives lot of love and attention daily. I pick them up and love them and get them used to the human touch, and that feeling of unconditional love. This socializes the puppy and gives them the socialization they need to be a happy addition to their new family.
I have been a dog lover for all of my life and have owned many different breeds. I wanted a dog that didn't shed and therefore good for people with allergies. I was told the Bichon and Maltese fit that criteria. However, I loved the look of the West Highland Terrier too. I couldn't decide for a long time, which one I wanted. I finally went the with Bichon. She turned out to be what I called, "my angel" dog. She was perfect. We went everywhere together. At night she would cuddle up right next to me. About a year later I rescued another Bichon. I still wondered what a little Maltese would be like and one day I was at a pet store and saw the cutest little Maltese puppy. So I couldn't resist. So now I had 3 little white dogs, but hey were all females.They were such great little dogs, my friends wanted puppies from them. So, I purchased a male Bichon and a male Maltese. So that's how I started breeding.
I want to talk about the difference between male and female pups. I know a lot of people lean towards females. I too was one of those people until I started breeding and wanted my own stud dogs. I found that males are just as sweet and lovable as the females. What most people are concerned about with males, is the "marking." The marking is caaused my the male hormones that are produced when the puppy is 7 months of age. The key is to get you male neutered before so hormones "kick" in. If you neurter after the hormones are already there, you dog will still think he is a "stud" even though he can't pregnate a female, he will display the behaviors.
Each breed as its own characteristics but how that puppy is raised is most
influential in how the puppy behaves. That is why I interact with my puppies, surrounding them my love and attention. But you must also know about the breed of puppy you are getting to know what characteristics it was bred to have. In case you don't know about these breeds, let me give you a brief history about the breeds.
First of all, they are similar in that they are all white. They are great family dogs and companions. They all require grooming as their hair can get easily matted. Westies can vary in their coat, from straight to wavy, and course to soft hair. I keep mine short as it makes the hair easier to maintain. Longer hair requires more brushing. Each breed has different types of hair.
The Bichon has curely hair. The Maltese is long silky hair. The Westie has a undercoat, which means IT SHEDS, where as the Bichon and Malese does not. I wouldn't suggest a Westie if you have respiratory or allergy problems. These 3 breeds also vary in "average" size.
Bichon Frise: Falls in the "Non-sporting" Catagory. Bichon ( bee-shawn) small white dog. Frise (free-say) means curly haired. They are similar to the poodle ( but don't mistake them for one as they well be greatly offended.) Their long hair is like a powder puff. They weigh 10-15lbs, and around 12 inches tall.
Temperment: This breed loves human company yet has a strong independent spirit. They are happy, friendly and lively and will enjoy as much exercise as their owner.
Maltese: Falls in the "Toy" Catagory. They come from the island of Malta, hence the name Maltese. They can weigh from 4-6 lbs, the toy Maltese, or can be a little larger 7-10lbs. This is the size Maltese I breed. I think the larger size makes a better family dog. The toy Maltese can be a little fragile for small children. Some people prefer this size but they are usually adults w/o children. They are usually 8-10 inches tall.
Temperment: Loving and loyal as well as tough. Makes a good watchdog. Our Maltese is great with kids and a wonderful part of our family.
West Highland Terrier:Falls in the "Terrier" catagory. The Westie is considered of one the most attractive of the Scottish terriers. The Westie is a hardy, tenacious dog. They were bred to hunt. They have a straight outter coat covering a short undercoat. They are about 11 inches tall and can weight 15-22lbs.
Maltichon: The most popular designer dog. This combination of the Maltese and Bichon Frise is a great little dog sharing the personality of the Bichon and Maltese. They can range in size from 8 to 14 lbs. They are hypoallergenic and do not shed, which is one reason they are so popular.
Wee- Chon: A mix between the West Highland Terrier and the Bichon Frise. The puppies can have like the Bichon, or the Westie. Ears seem to be dominate, as so far most of the pups have had the Westie ears. Some people feel they have the best world of these two breeds. Westies do have an undercoat and are not hypoallergenic the the Bichon doesn't shed and is hypoallergenic. Depending on the hair that the puppy has there should be little to no shedding.
There is a lot more information on my main website. Also you can read the testimonial page where there are e-mails from previous buyers.
For the following breeds are also on my main website.
YORKSHIRE TERRIER: Also falls under the "Terrier" catagory and can also fall in the "Toy" catagory. The origin assumed to be England. The breed as gotten smaller over the years thru selective breeding. Yorkies are a spirited dog who is not intimidated by larger dogs or house intruders, making a good guard dog as well as a loving pet. The coat is long, straight and silky. Height around 7-9 inches, Weight 7lbs. (can vary from 5-11lbs). Teacup Yorkies (under 4lbs)are cute, but they have a lot of health problems and they can not be used for breeding).
Dachshund: Dachshunds are interesting little dogs that have a lot of personality. They are loyal dogs with a nice long lifespan. The breed is not particularly active but enjoys walks and play time. Although they can be somewhat stubborn, generally they are gentle dogs and not extremely aggressive.
