Maltese are cheerful, active, merry extroverted and love companionship. This breed is patient but dislikes being forced or told to do anything.
Male and Female Maltese can grow anywhere from 8-10 inches and should weight 4 to 7 pounds. Malese tend to have a shorter life span and usually lives for nine to ten years.
Care and Exercise
This breed needs elaborate coat care, coats should be Shampooed at least once a week (especially around the eyes and mouth to avoid brown staining). Regular daily brushing of their clean coat is essential.
These pups need to only play and get exercise indoors; especially on colder or hotter days. Any short teacup like breeds are easily affected by bad weather.
