Can a Maltese be brown? Just like black mixed breed pups, brown Maltese are also a mix of this small breed and other types of dogs. Brown pups are typical results of crossbreeding between teacup breeds such as a Maltese and a Pomeranian, a Toy Poodle, or a Shih Tzu.
Why does my Maltese have brown hair? This is often due to exposure to natural sunlight. Even if a Maltese’s stomach is never facing the sun, a small amount of light is reflected from the ground; this hits the tummy and over the course of months or years can cause a color change. There may be grey, black, or brown spots.
How much is a brown Maltese? The average Maltese puppy costs about $600 to $2,000. The price is largely dependent on the puppy’s pedigree and the breeder’s experience. While these dogs don’t actually cost much to breed due to their small size, their high demand often drives up the price.
Is there such thing as a black Maltese? A purebred Maltese should ideally have only white fur as set by the American Kennel Club standards. Although it is possible for purebred Malteses to have tan or lemon-colored spots on their ears, they can never have dark streaks, let alone a full black coat color.
