Maltese Terrier

Toy Group

With a beautiful ivory colored, single layered coat and a compact, miniature build; the Maltese really is one of the cutest breeds around. They can often be lively and spirited and can also be prone to Small Dog Syndrome if not trained properly. They live fantastically well alongside children and other non-canine animals making them suitable for most households, just try not to spoil them too much, hard as that may be.
