Default Is this a Maltese?

Hello all, just joined the forum and would like to ask for an expert opinion if the dog we have bought is actually a Maltese as advertised. His name is Walter and he has a distinctive pink nose and lips and his face looks more pointed than pictures of other Maltese we have seen.

To me, he also looks as though he is a Poodle with some Malt in him. Good Luck with your new pup!

I agree. He looks more Poodle to me than Maltese. He's also got quite an overbite!

Thank you all for the kind words.

We had guessed that he has some poodle in him. It's no big deal what he is. He has such a laid back temperament and is great to have around. He wasn't just smiling for his picture, he's smiling 24/7. Even when he's sleeping lol.

Yeah, I would have to agree. He is certainly not full Maltese.

However, he is clearly a Breaking Bad fan
