Maltese are bred to be cuddly companion dogs, and thrive on love and attention. They are extremely
lively and playful, and even as a Maltese ages, his or her energy level and playful demeanor remain
fairly constant. Some Maltese may occasionally be snappish with smaller children and should be
supervised when playing, although socializing them at a young age will reduce this habit. The
Maltese is very active within a house, and, preferring enclosed spaces, does very well with small
yards. For this reason, the breed also fares well in apartments and townhouses, and is a prized pet
of urban dwellers. Maltese also suffer from separation anxiety, so potential owners should be
cognizant of this behavior.

An Australia-wide (not including Tasmania) research project carried out in conjunction with RSPCA
found owners likely to dump their Maltese terriers, citing the tendency of Maltese to bark constantly.
This breed is Australia's most dumped dog.  In addition, figures released in 2010 by the Korean
National Veterinary Research and Quarantine Service show that some 1,208 Maltese were
abandoned between January and August 2010, making it the most abandoned breed in Seoul,
Korea.
MALTESE
Flowing strands of pure white silk adorn the
diminutive Maltese, whose dark eyes reveal the
breed’s sweet nature and intelligent ways. The
Maltese reigns as the most perfect of the Toy
breeds, sailing effortlessly in his glorious floor-
length coat, proudly carrying his aristocratic head
topped by a well-placed bow. More than a
priceless work of art decorating his owner’s home,
the Maltese is a loving, close-bonding companion
dog who lives to be near his owner and share his
life with his chosen mistress or master.
