The Maltese is a small breed of toy dog that descends from other dog species originating in the Central Mediterranean. The breed name and origins are generally understood to derive from the Mediterranean island nation of Malta; however, the name is sometimes described with reference to the distinct Adriatic island of Mljet, or a defunct Sicilian town called Melita.
In appearance, the Maltese have a white, silky coat with completely straight fur. They do not have an undercoat, and therefore shed very little, if at all. Despite this, the dogs do need to be groomed often as their coat will tangle and mat extremely easily, meaning that daily brushing and regular bathing is a must. They are still considered to be a hypoallergenic breed, however, making them a great choice for anyone who is allergic to dogs.Maltese are bred to be cuddly companion dogs. They are extremely lively and playful, and their energy level and playfulness stays fairly consistent even as they age. Some Maltese pups can occasionally be snappish with smaller children and should be supervised when playing, although socializing them at a young age will reduce this habit. They adore humans, and prefer to stay near them.
The Maltese is very active within a house, and they actually tend to prefer enclosed spaces, making them good for homes with small yards or for life as an apartment or townhouse dog. Some Maltese may suffer from separation anxiety, which can cause them to bark, chew, salivate, urinate, vomit or try to escape. Although not all Maltese suffer from separation anxiety, owners should be prepared to learn strategies to help them cope with being left alone.
