We do not breed pure Maltese dogs.
Height at the shoulder: 20-25 cm (8-10 in)
Maltese have a beautiful white coat.
The Maltese is very affectionate due to centuries of being
bred as a companion dog. They are intelligent, playful and a deeply devoted
companion that love to be held and cuddled. These cute little dogs also
have a lively side and are known for their occasional wild outbursts of
physical activity running around in circles at top speed with amazing agility.
Some have placed the Maltese's origin three thousand years
ago and Charles Darwin himself thought they originated at 6000 BC. These
beautiful little dogs can be seen in art dating back as far as 3,000 years.
The Maltese obtained their name from the Island of Malta where they originated.
