About Maltese Dogs

Maltese are small with long white hair which flows from a central parting running the length of their body. The hair reaches the ground. The tail is carried over the back and the hair falls down in a plume. A tinge of lemon is permissible on the ears. They have black round the eyes and footpads. The nose is black. They have a sweet facial expression making them endearing pets. Some people like to put a bow in the hair to keep it out the eyes. They carry their heads erect as if to say, "I'm a Maltese, and proud of it!"

A Maltese makes a wonderful companion. They are friendly and playful. They make good house dogs. They are small enough to keep in a small yard, though all dogs benefit from the mental stimulation of being taken for walks. Daily brushing will help to keep the Maltese's coat looking good.

Maltese puppies are tiny, and should not be removed from the litter too soon.

The long hair of the Maltese is his glory. Samson was a man whose long hair was his glory. He was strong and handsome - until he started messing around with the wrong type of woman.  He lost not only his hair, but also his health & strength. 
Judges 16 

   

The Maltese has a short name: it's not "Maltese Poodle" - just, "Maltese!"
