Maltese have looks, brains, and huge, gentle hearts

According to the American Kennel Club standard for the Maltese: "The Maltese is a toy dog covered from head to foot with a mantle of long, silky, white hair. He is gentle-mannered and affectionate, eager and sprightly in action, and, despite his size, possessed of the vigor needed for the satisfactory companion.

"For all his diminutive size, the Maltese seems to be without fear. His trust and affectionate responsiveness are very appealing. He is among the gentlest mannered of all little dogs, yet he is lively and playful as well as vigorous."

The first record of a Maltese similar to today's dog is shown on a Grecian amphora dated from about 500 B.C. The Maltese is one of the breeds from the Mediterranean region in the family "Bichon," which also includes the Bichon Frise and the Coton de Tulear.

Our shop, Golly Gear, specializes in fun, affordable and practical products especially for small dogs. Our staff woul be delighted to help you find exactly the right stuff for your Maltese!

      Aww. My Maltese is special because she always makes me laugh. She's so goofy sometimes. When she gets excited, she runs around, jumps and spins in circles, and rubs herself all over the carpet. I can't imagine life without her.
