The Maltichon was developed by crossing the adored Maltese and the smart Bichon Frise. Both parent breeds originally belonged to the Bichon type of dog. The Bichon descended from a Poodle and a Barbet (water spaniel) and were used as sailing dogs. They have a long history of making great companions and have remained a sought-after dog breed for generations.
