From Dog Breed Info – The Maltese is spirited, lively and playful. Gentle, loving, trusting and devoted to its master. Highly intelligent. Good at learning tricks. Bold and quick to sound the alarm in case of suspicious noises. It is a classic companion dog: graceful and lovable. It does well with other non-canine animals and other dogs. Maltese love to play outdoors. Some like to jump in puddles. May be difficult to housebreak. If you feed them table scraps, they can become picky eaters.
One of the only negatives about these dogs is that they can develop Small Dog Syndrome meaning they tend to think they are head of the household. It’s important that you train and teach them early. Other than that this is a wonderful breed and we’re happy to share pictures of the Maltese in the pages to follow. If you have your own pics, videos, or stories to share be sure to submit them to us!
