All About Maltese dogs
Maltese 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.
