Information about the Maltese

Country of Origin:



The Maltese dog is one of the many bichon breeds found in areas around the Mediterranean. It is believed to be at least two thousand years old and was kept as a companion by the nobility. Ancient authors often remarked on the beauty of the Maltese; the Greeks were so enamored with the breed that they even erected tombs for them. English travelers during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries brought examples home with them but the breed was not seen in the U.S. until the late nineteenth century.

Physical Description:

The Maltese dog is a small dog with a compact body that is equal in height and length. It has a medium-length head with a slightly rounded skull and a firm jaw. The nose is small and black. The eyes are dark and round and the drop ears are set low. The long plume of a tail is carried arched over the back. The single coat is silky and flat. It hangs to either side of the body from a center part. The long hair on the head is usually tied into a topknot. It is usually pure white but may have some light tan or lemon on the ears, although this isn’t desirable.
