The Maltese display a graceful and regal demeanor, exuding great joy and delight.
This endearing breed is bright, loving, and a deeply devoted companion. The Maltese is gentle, trusting, and obedient.
The Maltese loves to be social, so a play date at the park is always welcomed.
Crate training is recommended as the Maltese may be difficult to housebreak.
The Maltese have an elegant mantle of long, silky hair. Their coat requires daily brushing and combing to prevent matting and their eyes need daily cleaning to prevent staining.
They do not do well in very hot climates or damp conditions.
