Q. my 6 pound multipoo ate a small resin dog toy from china Should we be concerned?

A. Although they are quiet small, this might be too big to pass for a Maltese. i suggest you go to the vet today or tomorrow in order to check where it is (stomach, intestines) and decide the next step (probably surgery to remove it securely).
