No, maltese are fairly common these days. They've become a favorite for petstores, puppymillers and unethical breeders known as "Back Yard Breeders" (BYB).

Your pups will be cute, but certainly nothing rare or extraordinarily special.

Not rare at all. In fact, neither are your puppies. TONS of unethical people create mixes like you have.

Yah I see alot of malt's. What are rare is the ones that are very well bred from good breeders. Most of them are from BYB breeders that breed health problem prone dogs.

I would not consider a maltese a rare breed. A mix of a maltese is even less rare.

Wouldn't say rare. I myself have only met three in my life time but most people wouldn't have a hard time pointing one out in a line up.
