Hi, mammyrose, and welcome! Congratulations on the new baby you're about to get. You may want to start a fresh post, letting us know, so that more members can see it. I can't wait to see pictures of Chloe!

Aww he is so snuggly looking there is more of him to give cuddles to!! I don't think it really matters I bet he has the personality of a Maltese. Think he might be a mixed breed but he is super cute and looks Maltese

Show breeders will only breed dogs that conform to the standard, but even generations of dogs that conform to the standard will throw many pups that do not. If those pups are bred we see greater deviation from the standard.

Yet, they can be healthy, beautiful little love bugs. Paddington is a love bug. He is probably pure Malt...just from home breeders who loved their kids, but didn't feel the need to conform to the standard.

Bottom line....he is your baby...he is adorable...you will love him, have him neutered and give him a good life.

I'd love to know which popular champions were 10 lbs!

There are always puppies though that don't conform with the standard, even if the parents did.

Personally, I'd be more inclined to place a dog because it was too small than too big. dcm, do you show your dogs? I'd love to see pics of them!
I'd rather not say publicly as most of the breeders are still active and I don't need any flack with them. I know how they get

I have a very good friend with 4 champions from breeders you'd recognize.... the dam of one of her champions (was a champion) and she was 9 lbs. The dog owned by my friend was only 4 lbs. but his mom was bigger, nonetheless.

I've had Malts for 35 years...showed on a limited basis until cancer struck. Just never got back into it. However, I now have a beautiful little boy I may consider showing if I can find the time. Have had a lot of personal life changes in the recent past.

There is no size dis-qualification for this breed. Some champions are under the 4 lbs. and many are over the 7 which is below and above the *preferred size* but are/were still championed.

Many show breeders just don't tell all. Sorry, but that's the truth. They practice good p.r.

Paddington is a cutie!
I'm no expert, not even close, but I think he's probably mixed because 23 lbs is pretty big.

You definitely know a lot about the breed! Is that the little boy in your signature? He's a cutie!! Was he one that you bred?

personally, I like them a little bigger and will be more apt to keep a bigger one than a smaller pup! I wouldn't keep a big boy for show though unless he was exceptional (and by big, i mean 7 + lbs)
