If anyone has seen a crossbreed dog, the thought of adopting one would cross their mind. One of the most popular crossbreeds is the Malti-Poo. It is a cross between a Maltese and a Poodle. These small dogs with affectionate eyes are the happiness one needs in their life. They are so cute that many call them designer dogs.


The Mood-Enhancer Dog


Whether one is angry, sad, happy, or upset, dogs can love their owners unconditionally. The Malti-Poo will always be by their owner’s side and will follow them all the time when they are home. Psychologists believe that Malti-Poos can treat patients going through a stage of depression or anxiety. That is why they are also known as therapy dogs. Imagine having such a dog in the house. No one will have a dull moment from the time he/she arrives.

Malti-Poos become the best friend and a loving companion to their owner. They roam around the house without creating a nuisance.
