The Ultimate Maltese Guide

About Maltese

Also known as The Comforter, Roman Ladies dog, Melitaie dog, and Ye Ancient Dogge of Malta, the Maltese is one of the most ancient toy breeds in the world. Because of its vigorous nature, it is popular as a companion dog, therapy dog, and sports competitor.

Grooming

Grooming

Brush your Maltese every day to prevent coat matting. Clean the hair around its eyes daily to avoid tear staining. Bathe your pup once or twice a month.

Origins

The history of the Maltese goes back to at least 2,000 years. Some believe it originated in the Isle of Malta from Spaniel- and Spitz-type dogs. Others believe it is developed in either Italy or Asia.

In the 15th century, the Maltese arrived in Britain where it became a prized dog of aristocrats and royals. Many believed it could cure diseases so it was given the nickname “The Comforter.”

The Maltese nearly did not survive in the 17th century when breeders tried to breed it to be as small as a squirrel. To save it, breeders mixed it with other miniature dogs, resulting in numerous variations.

In the 1800s, the Maltese arrived in the United States where it was recognised in dog competitions. In 1888, it was accepted by the American Kennel Club.

Key Characteristics Of Malteses

Are Malteses Family-Friendly?

Yes, Maltese puppies make good family dogs. However, they are not recommended for families with young, rambunctious children because these dogs are tiny and fragile.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Malteses may suffer from:

Patellar luxation

A condition where the kneecap dislocates or moves out of its normal location within the knee joint.

Progressive retinal atrophy

White dog shaker syndrome

A neurological disorder primarily affecting small, white breeds, characterized by tremors, lack of coordination, and rapid eye movements.

Portosystemic liver shunt

A congenital abnormality where blood vessels bypass the liver, leading to insufficient detoxification and various systemic health issues.

Hypoglycemia

Reverse sneezing

Nature / Temperament

Playful, fearless, intelligent, gentle, and affectionate

Suitable Environment

Because of its tiny size, this toy breed is well suited for apartments and other small confines.

Other Considerations

  • Maltese puppies that weigh below 1.8 kg at maturity are likely to suffer from health problems, so avoid buying a ‘teacup puppy’ from breeders.
  • It’s easy for young kids to hurt a Maltese which is why most breeders do sell these pups to families with toddlers.
  • This purebred is prone to chills especially when it is damp.
  • While this canine can get along with other pets, it should be protected from dogs or cats that are 10 times or more its size.

How can I take good care of my Maltese?

Nutrition

Maltese puppies should be fed regularly because they are prone to low blood sugar. The recommended daily amount of food is ¼ to ½ cup per day, divided into two meals.

Make sure they are fed only high-quality dry dog food that does not contain a lot of additives.

Feed your pup canned food that is balanced and nutritious. If you prefer a more natural diet for your dog, include chopped vegetables, raw chicken necks, and vitamin supplements.

Avoid the following foods: onions, chocolates, raisins, avocados, and macadamia nuts.

Prevent your pup from getting overweight by measuring its food all the time. If you want to know if your dog is obese, do a hands-on test. If you cannot feel its ribs, or there is a layer of fat over its ribs, it’s time to put your Maltese on a diet.

Grooming

The Maltese has a coat that is prone to matting which is why it needs to be brushed and combed daily. It also tends to get dirty so it needs to be bathed at least once a month.

Brush your pup’s teeth two times weekly to prevent bad breath and remove tartar buildup. Trim its nails once or twice a month to prevent tears. Check its ears once a week for odour and infection.

Exercise

While it is active and playful, the Maltese doesn’t need a great deal of exercise. One short walk in the morning and another short one in the evening is enough. Make sure you wait until your dog is eight months old before walking far with it.

Training

While the Maltese is eager to please, it is not the easiest breed to train. Crate training and proper socialisation are needed so that it grows into a well-rounded dog. Enroling it in a puppy kindergarten class is a good idea.

This breed responds well to positive reinforcement. Avoid yelling at it or using harsh training tactics because it is a sensitive dog. Instead, reward it with food and praise for its efforts.

Be sure to consult an expert if you’d like to learn about the breed’s care and requirements.

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.

Most Asked Maltese Questions

A puppy with a superior pedigree typically costs between $4,000 to $7,000.
