Behaviour and Personality

Malchis are affectionate towards their owners, and their eagerness to please makes them easy to train. They are wary of strangers and tend to bark at them. Since Malchis are smaller dogs, they do better as indoor pets, especially during the winter season. They do well in apartments, and a daily walk is usually enough to exercise their legs.
