The Maltese is gentle, affectionate, intelligent, responsive and trusting. A good family dog, Maltese are lively, playful, vigorous, and they generally enjoys learning tricks. They can be snappy with raucous children. The petite build of the Maltese belies its fearless presence.
Yes, Maltese do bark a lot and very much so. The Maltese share a trait with most toy-sized dog breeds: they have a particularly sensitive temperament that makes them prone to bark uncontrollably, and several reasons can trigger this behavior.
Maltese are one of the most loyal toy breeds—attaching themselves to their owner both on the couch and on the street. Because they love lots of affection, Maltese can suffer from separation anxiety. Maltese are unafraid.
They generally live for around 12-15 years, research by Paw Leaks found that the oldest Maltese dog to have ever lived was 20-years-old.
Protective. Maltese are protective of their personal space and of their owners. Though they are generally patient and gentle, they will bark at people and dogs who get too close before proper introductions are made.
Most Maltese puppies will finish growing around six to eight months of age. As a toy dog breed, they reach their final weight and height much quicker than many dogs.
It is quite amazing how low quality food can affect a dog, and particularly a toy size breed like the Maltese. Aside from upset stomach, and skin and coat issues, inferior food can cause tear staining. This is often due to artificial additives including coloring, flavoring, and/or preservatives.
Hydrogen Peroxide: Soak a cotton pad in a water-diluted hydrogen peroxide mixture (one part hydrogen peroxide with 10 parts water) and apply carefully to clean the stained area. It’s important to take your time and be careful—you don’t want to get any of the hydrogen peroxide in your dog’s eye.
