Confused Wondering if my baby girl is a maltese!

When we first got her, the people we got her from told us she was a maltese. Recently, I started doing a bit more research on this breed and I read that they normally only exist in white or with patches of brown.

Lucky is black and white. She looks like a maltese. Could she possibly be a mix?
Here she is! Don't mind me, haha.

I wish I were more of an expert -- from what I know, she would have to be a mix, I don't think purebred maltese can have black spots? But I will tell you that for what it's worth (not much I'm sure) I was humming to myself and stopped to say out loud, to no one, "oh my goodness she's so cute" when I saw those pictures.

Aw, thank you so much! She's the light of my day, haha.
Maltese or not makes no difference to me, I was just curious because I wanted to match up her personality traits with the ones generalized by the Maltese breed.
Thanks for your answer!

Looks to me like she is part Maltese & part Shih Tzu.

What ever breed she is, she is one adorable little girl!!! And yes, I too think that she looks as though she is part Maltese and Shih Tzu. I especially love the middle picture of her!! Good luck with her.

The hair around the face has a maltese-like lay, the tail look maltese. You can definitely see the shih-tzu in her face (eyes and nose and mouth), but the coloring patters looks very havanese to me. She looks adornable.

She is very very cute. Her mommy was probably a Malt and her daddy was ???? How big is she? I think she looks very much like a Havanese.

I am of the totally non expert opinion that she is havanese and maltese. That face is far too cute to have any trace of shih tzu.
