If you are in contact with his breeder you should let her know of the problem.
Children should not pick up this breed.
I think the Maltese Yorkie mix is a delightful blend of adorableness, a great personality and a coat that is relatively easy to manage.

A Maltese is always solid white, or white with light tan or lemon shadings on his ears.
