A Mal-Shi is a hybrid that is a cross-breed of a Maltese and a Shih Tzu and may demonstrate any combination of traits from those two breeds. The experimentation of these hybrid or designer dogs has not been recognized by the American Kennel Club or Canadian Kennel Club. The key to cross breeding to purebred dogs is what is called hybrid vigor, the breeding resulting in a healthier dog with superior genetic constitution can come from dogs purebred for so long that they have common genetic disorders. Therefore, be sure to choose reliable Mal-Shi breeders when buying Mal-Shi puppies.
