The Maltese is one of the most ancient of the toy breeds with a history that can be traced back over two millennia. Despite their prominence throughout history, the exact origin of the Maltese dog is uncertain. Many believe the breed was developed in the Isle of Malta in the Mediterranean Sea from Spitz- or Spaniel-type dogs. Others believe they were developed in Italy, and still others believe that they came originally from Asia and had a part in developing many of the smaller Asian dogs. English breeders developed the Maltese as we know him now. Many of the Maltese in the United States today trace their heritage back to English imports during the early 1800’s. 

Appearance and Grooming

Their gorgeous coats are pure white, silky, and straight, reaching all the way to the ground. They don’t have an undercoat like most breeds so shedding is minimal. Because they lack this undercoat they are intolerant to many outside elements so be sure that it’s not too hot or too cold before taking them outdoors. Because of their pure white coat, staining can be very noticeable. Regular cleaning and brushing, especially around the eyes and feet can prevent discoloration and maintain a beautiful shine. Many owners put the hair on the top of their Maltese's head into a topknot to keep it away from the eyes. If you decide to do this, be sure to use coated bands that won't break the hair. Gum disease is prevalent in this breed so regular brushing of the teeth at least two or three times a week to remove tartar buildup and the bacteria is important. Daily brushing is even better if you want to prevent gum disease and bad breath.

Temperament

These dogs are gentle-mannered, affectionate and without fear. They are among the gentlest mannered of all little dogs, yet they are lively and playful as well as vigorous. Their trusting and tender personalities make them the perfect lap dog and cuddly companion.

Family and Companionship

These dogs thrive in a home with quiet older children or adults only who will treat him with the care they need. Due to their small frame it is not advisable to have them in the same home as small children as play can be too rough on such a delicate dog. They do get along quite well with other dogs and cats if they are socialized to them at an early age.

Exercise

Due to their small stature, these dogs don’t need much in the way of exercise. A brisk 20 to 30 minute walk each day and some moderate play indoors each day will be plenty to keep this dog happy and healthy.

Training and Socialization

These dogs are people-oriented, which makes training a fairly simple process. These dogs respond especially well to positive reinforcements such as treats, praise, and play. Like most every dog, the Maltese needs early socialization including exposure to many different people, sights, sounds, and experiences. Socialization helps ensure that your puppy grows up to be a well-rounded dog.

Frequently Asked Questions

The average lifespan is 12 to 15 years.

No. The Maltese sheds very little if at all. They are considered one of the best breeds for people who suffer from dog allergies.

Maltese’s are very small dogs who enjoy play, however, they are not often recommended with families that have small children as young children may not quite understand how to be gentle, especially if left unsupervised.

White. Thought they do have some tan or lemon markings around their ears the rest of their coat is fully White.

All dogs will face ailments as they grow older, just like humans. The most common health issues found in the Maltese are patellar luxation, progressive retinal atrophy (PRA), patent ductus arteriosus, portosystemic liver shunt, white dog shaker syndrome, and hypoglycemia.

Yes, the Maltese are highly intelligent. They love learning new skills and performing learned tricks, which makes training a pretty simple process.

This breed requires a minimal amount of exercise each day to remain fit and healthy. Short strolls either in a park or a yard are great for these pooches.

This depends on the look that you’re going for. If you prefer your Maltese to have a longer coat then you’ll need to brush your little one daily as well as wash their face to avoid tear staining around the eyes. If you are keeping your dog’s coat shorter, brushing every couple of days as well as cleaning of the face each day is sufficient. A weekly bath will also keep your Maltese’s coat clean and soft.

No. Unlike Poodle mixes, there is only one Maltese.

Like most small dogs, the Maltese is a spirited animal that tends to do things on their terms. The most effective way to train your Maltese is with proper socialization at an early age as well as practicing patience, consistency and most positive reinforcement. These dogs love to be told they did something well, so this is a big benefit in terms of training.

This breed was founded on the Mediterranean island of Malta and was developed to be the companion pet of wealthy, cultured families.

Halos are a part of the Maltese’s black points and are quite beautiful. Not all Maltese have these.

It's always best to feed a high quality dry dog food instead of wet canned food to help your dog maintain healthy gums and teeth. For optimal health, offer a formula with wholesome ingredients and all-natural preservatives (such as a vitamin blend and/or herbs). Avoid artificial preservatives when you can.

The Papillon and the Bichon Frise are both very similar to the Maltese breed.

Please be aware that there is no official separate breed called a “teacup Maltese.” This is a marketing and advertising ploy rather than a true recognized type of dog.

MALTESE


Date: 7/13/2020
Name: Leo (previously Lennox)
Breed: Maltese
Client: Favian Rios
Loc: East Hampton, Ny

We got Lennox (now Leo) on May 8, 2020 and we couldn't have been more happy to get him and have him be part of our family. He is a loving, intelligent, alert, brave, and active dog and we just love him so much. We had come across Premier Pups because a family friend had recommended them because it's where the adopted their toy poodle. We would look ever day through the website awaiting the dog for us, and then finally we found Lennox. We immidently reserved him and couldn't wait to meet him. We called Premier Pups to make sure we reserved him properly and that everything was okay. They help us every step of the way to fully adopting Leo and they were very kind. Days before Lennox's arrive we had received a text from one of the Premier Pups employees saying that Lennox was not able to fly due to Covid-19 and that they would be driving him for Ohio to my State. We were kind of skeptically at first but we knew it would all work out. They sent us many text updates on how far they were making the pick up process very easy. Then they texted us that they have arrived and we got to meet Leo for the very first time and took him home. I remember him being so tiny. We brought him home and he didn't seem at all scared and began to eat the dry food Premier Pups had provided. Lennox (now Leo) is 4 month old and is growing up to be a wonderful dog and we couldn't be happier with Premier Pups. We still look through the website to this day maybe in search for a new fur baby.

I purchased my Teacup Maltese from Premier Pups on 04/08/2016 and drove up to pick him up on 04/09/16. So I have only had him for 3 weeks, but he is adorable and so tiny. I really hope he stays that tiny, well he is 2lbs now and is suppose to be 4 - 5 lbs. I am having a few issues with the puppy pad training but I guess that is normal. So my over all experience with Premier Pups has been a good one. I know that it is a costly choice but as anything in life if you want the best you must pay for it. I love my baby boy.

My son purchased my little love for me for a Christmas present after I had lost my husband. Her name was Madison but she is now my little Tinkerbelle. Our “gotcha day” was December 2, 2017 and my little love just celebrated her 2nd birthday. She has been the perfect little companion for me. She goes absolutely everywhere I go, or I don’t go. Thank you for such a beautiful little girl to give me all her unconditional love. Proud momma, Kathy
