All About Maltese dogs

maltese dogsMaltese dogs are hardy little companions with a luxurious, silky white coat. They are lively and playful, completely trusting and devoted to their master. Highly intelligent and good at learning tricks, as long as he feels that the reward is sufficient!!

all Maltese dogs love to play outdoors and are particularly fond of jumping into muddy puddles – a bath will then be essential. They can be intolerant and snappish with inconsiderate children and can be tricky to housebreak.

It is thought that the Crusaders first took these Maltese dogs to England when they were returning home from the Mediterranean. The breed became very popular with women, who often carried them in their sleeves and into their beds.
