    I am looking to bring a Maltipoo into our family bit I want to make sure that I'm getting a puppy from a good loving and reputable home.

    Can anyone who has a Maltipoo in the North West or surrounding areas make any recommendations please.

    Hi I have no idea about breeders near you but with crosses like this you need to make sure that both the bitch and dog have had the tests needed as the pups can get the problems from both breeds. A lot of research is needed into both the breeds.

    Why do you want this cross breed? Why not get a well bred Maltese or a well bred poodle instead of buying a pup from someone who is probably looking to make money by breeding a "poo"?
    Both have non-shedding coats, both are small, both are sweet natured but intelligent. Why not find a good breeder of one or the other, you will likely have much more luck than trying to find an ethical breeder of this particular crossbreed.

    Please be aware this is NOT a 'breed' of dog, it's a designer cross breed but nevertheless a mongrel! Yes you could be lucky & find one that is the Best of both breeds but equally you could be unlucky & get the Worst of both breeds ! If your just looking for a mongrel then have a look at a rescue dog, ok you may take your chance there too but at least you will have given a dog a loving home rather than encouraging people who are breeding crossbreeds just to make money by bringing even more dogs into the world, when there are already enough here looking for a good home. Please reconsider.
