    Since you guys have experience for various breeds, I was wondering if you could find what my Bella is mixed with. The shelter said poodle (which I can see) but what else do you guys see in her?

    She looks quite a bit like my cousin's Maltese puppy, but I'm sure members with more experience than I have will comment. Whatever she is, she's adorable. :)

    Thank you.:) I've never seen maltese puppies, just the grown ups so I can't really tell.

    She looks VERY maltese to me. I wouldnt be surprised if she was a purebred maltese

    Looking at some maltese puppy pics, I can see the similarties. I think it would show more as she grows if she does have maltese in her.

    looks very Maltese to me as well, but with pups it's always hard to tell, it's be easier once she's an adult and has her full body structure and coat.

    I agree with maltese or maybe maltese/poodle or maltese/bichon. Maltese mixes are pretty common these days. She's adorable and such a great find in a shelter. :)
