please help im trying to figure out what dog is this. the guy who i bought it from claims its a Maltese.. but i know Maltese are pure white. this one looks more of a mix i just need a little help on figuring out what its mixed with by the way chowder is still a puppy :P and he is 7weeks old
Honestly the greeders are mixing so many different breeds now, there is no telling what you little guy is. He may or may not have any Maltese in him. Off the top of my head, I would he was any combination of Maltese, Poodle, Shih Tzu, Japanese Chin, Havanese and/or Pekingnese. I recently saw a Havanese/Poodle mix puppy that looked very similar to you pup. He is darling and I'm sure you enjoy him.
He looks like a mix, maybe some Shih-tzu. Did you see both parents? What does your vet say about the puppy, he or she would be able to tell you more about the possible breeds than we can see with 2 pictures.
Cute puppy. Be sure to get him neutered before he starts lifting his leg in the house. Usually about 6 months, but again, consult your vet.
