Maltese dogs make wonderful pets for city living

Maltese dogs really are the perfect lap dog. In Paris you will definitely encounter a French woman dining at a restaurant with her sweet Maltese companion on lap. The lovely companion will probably be pampered with a sugary bow clip or something while they dine together.

Really, Maltese dogs make wonderful companions with the exception being that they are not recommended for small children as they are quite fragile. But other than that these dogs make wonderful pets. They are agile, intelligent and can easily be taught dog tricks.

Weighing anywhere from 3 to 10 pounds, these toy dogs are covered in a long silky, white fur that does not shed, meaning they are considered hypoallergenic. As far as their coats go, they do require regular brushing to keep them mat free. Some owners keep their dog's fur cut short - only and inch or two long.

As far as temperament goes, Maltese dogs can be quite feisty like their ancestors the Terriers. They are mostly fearless for their small size. What calms them down is to be petted and preened. And since these dogs were bred for companionship they do not like to be left alone for hours at a time so if no one home all day this breed isn't your best choice. But if you're looking for an even tempered dog that loves company, then this breed is for you.
