Hello Everyone I appreciate your help. I purchased Achilles and was told that he was a Maltese-Poodle. However, the more we go out people seem to have different ideas. Any help would be greatly appreciated. He is very loving and hardly ever barks and seems to be very smart. He gets along very well with every dog he has ever come into contact with regardless of size. Here are some pictures. Thanks

Hi, trojan81--welcome to the board.

I don't know what he is, but he's sure a cutie! I can see maltese/poodle...or maybe yorkie/bichon :shrug: What's important, though, is that your little sweetie is all dog! :dog: I love the way the guard hairs are coming in white through the apricot! :lovestruck: Very cute! :D

hmm, is he just a puppy, or full grown, he sure is cute, i can see the poodle in him, but he doesnt really look like a maltipoo, i kind of see maybe a golden doodle?

Basset Fauve de Bretagne came to mind in the last two pics. Possibly with poddle mixed in.

I appreciate your guys swift responses. keep em coming! Achilles was born June 6 2007, he is 15 lbs right now. His vet has told me that he is pretty much full grown. I hope that helps.

I agree with allymack, as I was checking out the photos I was thinking a bigger dog, like golde or lab. You may not know until the cutie is older - and may not then....no worries if you love him.

I can see him being a maltipoo. If you look at the pics from the Dog Breed Info site they seem to come in various shapes and sizes. :shrug: ...

Achilles certainly is cute though. :lovestruck:

I met a lady with a Maltese/Bichon X yesterday looked like a little stuffed dog-toy,he was all white and soooo cute,he tried to jump Bailey(Cocker),who is 5 times his size:laughing:
I don't think your pup looks anything like the little one we met,but he ceetainly is a cutie,looks really mischievious:dog:
