A Moodle is a crossbreed between a Maltese and a Miniature Poodle. This breed is also known as the ‘Maltipoo’.

These dogs are becoming increasingly popular as house pets, due to their manageable temperament, small size and a wide variety of colour combinations.

They are also great dogs for people who suffer from allergies, as they do not shed much.

Moodle Temperament & Size

Moodles are very small dogs that have a really low fur shedding rate, making them highly manageable and suitable as households dogs. They are also nearly hypoallergenic, meaning that they are a great match for people with allergy issues.

The Moodle is generally regarded as a friendly dog, who likes companionship and human interactions.

Moodle Life Span & Health Problems

Moodles have a lifespan ranging from 12 to 15 years.

They are often prone to problems that affect their parent breeds, including heart disease and retinal atrophy.

Moodles can also suffer from Legg-Calve-Perthes disease, which causes the blood supply to fail to reach the head or leg bone sufficiently. This will cause the head and legs to shrink.
