How Big/tall Do the Crossbreed of a Maltese and Papillon Get?

I really like papiteses/maltillons the crossbred of malteses and papillons well I was wondering how big/tall they get because I don’t want a dog that is to big or to small. Also do you know if they are good at jumping and how high could they jump!

If you are looking for a specific purpose for a dog (like jumping a specific height safely), you should get a dog bred for that specific purpose with a lineage that consistently was bred for that purpose.

If, on the other hand, you are considering two mix breed dogs, there is no guarantee that all anceters in the pedigree were of the size required in the standard in the first place–so it becomes a real crap shoot. The breed standard for a pure bred Papillon specifically allows an acceptable size of 8 inches to 11inches–with 12 as a disqualification. However if a 12 inch dog was bred to a 15 inch dog and then bred to a similarly out of standard maltese, the resulting offspring could be even larger than either parent when grown.

    With mixed breed dogs, you will NEVER get a 50/50 result, so it is hard to say how much of one genetic they’ll get, even if they came from the same litter. It just isn’t a reliable result. Your best bet is to buy an adult, or adopt one from the pound, there are tons of mutts in there that deserve a good home and you can pick the perfect size you want. It’s better than ending up with a dog that got too big or didn’t get big enough.

    As a side note, my mixed breed small dog can clear a 3 foot jump no problem, and get up on the bed, which is about a 4 foot jump. Just make sure the dog you get can handle it.

    Since its a mutt you have no "standard" size, looks, temperament, or any thing else. The puppy can take after either parent breed or a little of both. I have no clue as to how high they can jump.
