    The best advice that I ever got for our Malti-Shi was to use a non-metal bowl for serving water! Don’t use Angel Eyes.. I did that then ended up having to go to the Vet with health issues!

    I rescued my mix breed shih tzu/Maltese and this dog and I are close. I have one problem whenever he sees another dog, large or small he becomes pscho and I have tried everything I can think of to stop this behavior. Any suggestions?

    I just bought a 10 week old Mal-Shi and i don’t know if this is normal but we have caught her eating her poo.we have had her about a month now and seems to be doing better..{at least while we are watching her)She also has a VERY MEAN attitude showing her teeth and wanting to eat us up if she don’t get her way..I have never had a dog act like this. Wondering if her brain got messed up when they were cross breeding We paid $700.00 for this cute little bad attitude poop eater.

      My Mal-Shi was like this the first few months when i brought him home! Very dominant attitude, high energy and would eat his poop too. Don’t be discouraged, try to clean up any surprises before she can eat them and be patient with her. Do not let her scare you and make sure to crate her and give her time outs when she misbehaves. It took my dog a year to warm up to me but now we are best friends!

      My Shih Tzu was still eating his poop every time he got a chance until he died last year at 15. The breeder of our Mal-Shi says all little dogs do it. Our pocket Yorkie doesn’t, and never has (He’s 7). So gross!

    How do I keep my 3 mo Malshi eyes from staining…I’ve got her on some angel powder in her food once a day and have angel eye wipes nothing seems to work.

      Hi Debbie,
      You need to follow a proper face grooming regimen to get rid of tear stains on your dog. Here are some tips:
      • Cleanse her eyes using a vet-approved canine eye-wash.
      • Use a cotton ball moistened with the eye-wash to rub around her eye area.
      • Wash the hair on her muzzle with dry shampoo and a damp washcloth. Once you have finished washing, comb and blow-dry her coat.
      • Trim the fur around her eyes to avoid irritation, which may induce tears.

        I had a pure white bichon with constant tear staining. I also used angel eyes which helped but someone told me to give her only filtered water not tap water and sure enough that alone was the solution. Hope it works for you.

        I have a malti tzu and a Bochon. I changed their diet and I haven’t had this problem anymore.
