MALTESE BREED PROFILE

History:
The Maltese is a very old breed, mentioned in ancient Greek writings and portrayed in ancient Egyptian statuary. The breed was probably named for the Mediterranean island of Malta. It is thought that these lively little dogs were first brought to England by Crusaders returning home from the Mediterranean. The breed became particularly popular with women, who often carried them in their sleeves and even to their beds. The dog was not only popular with women, though. Publius, the Roman governor of Malta, prized his Maltese enough to commission a portrait of "Issa" and even have poetry written about her. The glamorous Maltese today is an adored pet and sought-after show dog.

Description:
A hardy little companion dog with a luxurious silky white coat hanging straight to the ground on each side of a center part line. The coat is single, with no undercoat and should not be wavy, curly or kinky. The long pendant ears and tail are thickly covered with hair, and the tail drapes over the back. The round eyes are dark with dark rims, and the nose is black. The muzzle tapers slightly. The body is slightly longer than tall, with a level topline. The Maltese is fine-boned, but sturdy. A properly built Maltese seems to float along the ground under his cloud of white hair.

Notes:
The long straight coat requires daily attention and elaborate show preparation. Must be bathed frequently. Can be snappish with inconsiderate children. May be difficult to housebreak. Sometimes a picky eater. Include small dog biscuits and dry dog food in this breed's regular diet to help the teeth stay strong and healthy. Does well with other animals. Prone to skin, respiratory, eye and tooth problems, and slipped stifle. Do not over-pamper or overprotect these little dogs; some become neurotic.
