  Maltese are very smart and lovely small dogs with a silky snow-white coat. In history, they are known as brave rat-catchers and loyal royal favorites. Aristocracy have doted upon them for ages. Today it is one of the most sought-after and popular pet dog breeds in the world, which is gaining an ever-growing following every year.

History of the breed

The Maltese dog breed, or Maltese Bolognese is an ancient dog breed whose country of origin has never been established. However, it has been known since ancient Egypt. Figurines and drawings of these small dogs were found during excavations of the tomb of Pharaoh Ramses II, who lived in the 6th millennium BC. According to one hypothesis, the Maltese were also coveted companions of the rich in ancient Greece and ancient Rome. However, the Maltese lapdog gained the greatest popularity during the Middle Ages, securing the status of an expensive accessory for the members of the privileged classes. There is a lot of controversy regarding the name of the Maltese breed. The most common version claims that it originated from the name of Malta, an island that was once the center of European civilization. However, there is another version: for a long time, the Maltese were called "Melites" by the name of the island of Melita.

On the other hand, it is worth noting that in ancient times all the islands of the Mediterranean Sea, including Malta, were called Melita. It is believed that the name "Bolognese" comes from the name of the Italian city of Bologna, where these dogs gained popularity in aristocratic circles. And for a good reason, because the Maltese Bolognese is true royalty. From time immemorial, a Maltese dog was considered an expensive gift and belonged only to a chosen few, including members of the royal courts in different countries, especially in France and Italy. The famous British Queen Victoria and the Scottish Queen Mary Stuart also owned Maltese lapdogs. The Maltese was valued as highly as silks and precious metals. Their ancestors who lived in coastal towns bravely hunted rodents and proved to be excellent rat-catchers. According to experts, spaniels and toy poodles were among the ancestors of these snow-white dogs.

Maltese: character

The Maltese are kind, affectionate, intelligent, sympathetic and trusting dogs. They are very feisty, playful, energetic, love to learn new tricks and are great for families. The fearlessness of these dogs does not at all match their tiny size. They are always alert and readily respond to unfamiliar sounds with barking.

Maltese: maintenance and care

Maltese dogs are great for keeping in apartments and small spaces. They also make great walking and travel companions. This breed does not shed and or have a smell, and therefore will be an excellent choice for allergy sufferers and cleanliness fans!!! To prevent their hair from lumping, dogs need to be combed often and taken to the grooming salon. Maltese looks like a small toy that has come to life. The perfectly white coat is an important distinguishing feature and one of the main advantages of the Maltese. To maintain its beauty at the level it deserves, the owner should carefully groom the pet. One of the most important procedures to prevent tangling is the daily combing. About once every 7-10 days, the dog should be bathed using a special shampoo for white dogs and a conditioner that facilitates the combing process. Maltese does not have an undercoat, which means that this breed rarely causes allergies. This dog breed is absolutely odorless and never sheds!!! Particular attention should be paid to the eyes of the Maltese. Dogs of this breed often have brownish discharge, which, although considered normal, needs to be removed regularly.

Maltese: personality

Dogs of this breed have a wonderful personality: energetic, playful and very cheerful. They will be happy to bring you the ball, learn new commands and join in any activity. By the way, training the Maltese is a pleasure. They are easy to train and understand the commands perfectly, so even a child can manage. They are not intrusive, but are very attached to their master. Maltese can stay at home alone: they will easily find something to do on their own. However, it is still not worth leaving these dogs alone for a long time: they will begin to get bored. Maltese dogs are a great choice for families with children, as they easily get along with kids. However, children under 7 should interact with them under adult supervision, since a child can accidentally injure a Maltese. Thanks to their friendliness and curiosity, the Maltese quickly adapt to other animals. These are very calm dogs that do not demonstrate spontaneous aggression or jealousy.

Maltese: living conditions

The Maltese is a lap dog and does well in an apartment. It needs a suitable warm place without any no drafts. This breed has no tolerance for low temperatures, so in cold weather, make sure you put on a suit on your Maltese to keep your pet warm and protect it from dirt. But the Maltese love hot weather, they bask in the sun with great pleasure, and long hair doesn’t bother them in the heat at all. As the coat grows out, the Maltese should be taken to the groomer. Show dogs should have a long coat, while for pets can be cut short. If you don’t intend to participate in dog shows, you can choose any haircut for your Maltese from a huge variety of options! The diet for your Maltese requires special attention. All dog food manufacturers now have separate lines for white dogs, and we highly recommend these specialized lines.
