All Dog Breeds >>Appearance of Maltese

Characteristics include slightly rounded skulls, with a finger-wide dome and black nose that is two finger-widths long. The body is compact with the length equaling the height. The drop ears with long hair and very dark eyes, surrounded by darker skin pigmentation (called a "halo"), gives Maltese their expressive look. Their noses can fade and become pink or light brown in color without exposure to sunlight. This is often referred to as a "winter nose" and many times will become black again with increased exposure to the sun.

Maltese Training

The Maltese is moderately easy to train. He learns new commands at the average rate. He is neither difficult nor easy to train.

Maltese Shedding

The Maltese sheds practically no hair at all. You'll virtually never find a hair in your home!

Maltese Grooming

Pet coat (less work): Cut his coat short every few months and then it only needs to be brushed every so often. Show coat (more work): Professionally groom his coat to the breed standard. Brush it daily.
