  Breed standards may change over time. 
Both appearance standards and standards   regarding breed character or working 
qualities may change. The works of art   of the early years depict the most typical 
representatives of the breeds of that time.   Comparing with the modern appearance of 
the breed, you will be able to assess   how much the breed has changed over time. Also 
of interest are archival photographs of specific   breeds, which you can find on the Internet in 
specialized forums about the breed.
  Historical reference of the 
breed and subgroup.
The Maltese,   or Maltese is an ancient breed of toy dog ​​used 
as companions.

Cheerful, cheerful, playful.
  The group of indoor-decorative dogs covers a large 
number of breeds, in most cases not related to   each other, of various builds, different sizes, 
all kinds of coats and colors. And all of them,   big and small, black and white, short-haired and 
long-haired, are primarily dogs with all their   inherent features, devotion and love for humans.
The uniting link of this group, consisting   of a wide variety of breeds, is the 
closest communication with a person.
  The value of such a community can best be 
appreciated by an elderly and lonely person,   for whom a dog can be the only close creature who, 
with incorruptible devotion, shares loneliness   with him, goes for walks with him. A man takes 
care of his four-legged friend and in his company   forgets about his harsh fate. In such frequent 
cases, real canine loyalty manifests itself.
  In families where there are children, 
the dog helps to shape their character,   instills love for all living things, 
ennobles their character and helps to   suppress the selfishness inherent in children.
The benefits of decorative dogs to mankind are   undeniable, and their existence 
fully justifies itself.
  Although the famous Mediterranean island 
of Malta appears in the name of the breed,   starting from the 16th century, its ancestors were 
known even during the time of the Roman Empire.   The Maltese is considered to be one of the oldest 
indoor and decorative dog breeds in Europe.   For centuries, she served as a 
model for famous European artists,   in particular, Rubens, Goya.

The formation of the 
modern look of Maltese was completed in England,   it was from there that it 
spread throughout the world.
  The Maltese is an ideal lap dog with 
a friendly and lively disposition.   Not whimsical in food, is distinguished by 
good health and longevity. Understandable,   kind and funny. Doesn't need long walks. The 
coat of the dog is abundant and beautiful,   but requires regular and thorough grooming.
Dimensions and general appearance. The height   of the male at the withers is from 21 to 25 
centimeters, females from 20 to 23 centimeters,   weight from 3 to 4 kilograms. A small dog of 
a stretched format. The length of the neck   is approximately equal to half the height 
at the withers, and the girth of the neck,   normally covered with hair, should be equal 
to the height of the dog at the withers.   The neck is set very straight, which makes the 
head seem slightly thrown back. Deep, oval chest,   straight, strong back, lower back continues the 
line of the back; the length of the loin reaches   one third of the height of the dog at the withers 
and is equal to its width.

Broad and short croup,   slightly sloping towards the base of the tail. 
The forelimbs are set strictly vertically.
  Maltese is very strongly attached to 
the human family in which he lives.
  Some breeds are strongly attached to one person, 
others to all members of the human family,   others may have a friendly attitude towards 
all people in general, and the fourth may   not have close ties even with the owner.
Maltese most often chooses one person in the   family.

They do not show sympathy for strangers, 
they may show aggression towards them.
  The attitude of any dog ​​to strangers strongly 
depends on the breed of the pet, but even more   strongly this attitude depends on the upbringing 
and socialization of a particular individual,   while socialization in the early puppyhood of a 
pet is especially important in this regard.
  At the same time, Maltese does not get along well 
with children.

Even under the supervision of the   owner, great care should be taken when small 
children and Maltese spend time together.
  Some breeds of dogs are more relaxed about 
the behavior of young children and may not   pay attention to some antics of children, however,   it should be understood that dogs of all 
breeds, no matter how friendly they are,   should be with children only under the supervision 
of the owner or adults, since in addition to the   qualities of the breed in relation to children, 
there are also the individual characteristics   of each dog, its upbringing and previous 
experience in communicating with children.   Even these relationships are largely 
influenced by the behavior of children.
  But with other dogs, Maltese 
finds a common language quite well   and they get along well with each other, if, of 
course, other dogs show similar behavior.
  Different breeds of dogs treat their own kind 
differently, some dogs will play and interact   in every possible way with dogs they meet or 
live with, other breeds may try to dominate or   even attack similar four-legged ones.

At the same 
time, the relationship between dogs can be very   different from how a dog will react to people. The 
behavior of a dog in relation to other dogs and   people depends not only on the breed, but also on 
the socialization of a particular individual.
  Communication of Maltese with small 
pets such as hamsters, domestic rats,   squirrels, chinchillas and other rodents 
should be limited. Cats can get along.
  One of the very big advantages of the Maltese 
breed is the undemanding nature of this breed   to the owner's dog ownership experience.
Some dog breeds are easier to keep and train,   while others are more independent and even 
assertive and require an experienced owner.
  The Maltese breed is perfect for 
inexperienced dog owners or even those   who get a dog for the first time.
Also, Maltese are just fine for keeping   in an apartment, but it should be borne in 
mind that they cannot stand loneliness and   cannot be left alone even for a short time.
The quality and quantity of wool does not allow   Maltese to comfortably endure even a slight 

And a very low or high temperature is   no longer safe for a quadruped. Active loads 
should be avoided in the warm season.
  Learning and training.
All dogs can be trained and trained, but   some breeds remember and execute commands faster 
and more readily than other breeds. Different   breeds need a different approach to training 
and education. Some breeds may appear to be   poorly trainable or even stupid, however, in most 
cases, a dog breed's trainability is due to the   stubborn or independent nature of the dog breed or 
individual. this is exactly the case of Maltese,   they are smart enough to understand what they 
want from them, but they are just as stubborn.   Also of great importance in the trainability 
of a dog is the role of what training methods   the trainer uses for a particular breed.
In the book The Intelligence of Dogs, published in   1994 and written by University of British Columbia 
Vancouver psychology professor Stanley Coren,   Maltese is ranked 59 out of 80 in terms of 
learning ability.

In this regard, the breed stands   next to such breeds as the Pug, French Bulldog, 
Italian Greyhound and Chinese Crested Dog.
  In Professor Stanley Coren's book, 
Maltese is located In the group.
  Dogs with below average learning ability.
Mastering a new team from 40 to 80 repetitions.
  Execution of the command from the first time 
in 30 percent of cases and above.
  The disadvantage of this scale of learning 
ability, by the author's own admission,   is its strong dependence on the ability to 
obedience and command execution, for example,   for working or service dogs, and its weak 
connection with understanding and creativity,   for example, hunting dogs.

As a result, some 
breeds rank lower on the list because of their   stubborn or independent nature, which does not 
make them weakly intelligent or untrainable.
  Tendency to bark.
Among other things,   breeds differ in the level of noise, or rather, 
in the frequency of their barking. Some breeds can   bark all the time without stopping and never get 
tired of barking at every stranger or strange dog   that passes by your house or by herself, 
other breeds bark only on business, when it   is necessary in her opinion, and still others 
can only give a voice in exceptional cases.
  Maltese has a tendency to bark unreasonably.
But these dogs are not particularly distinguished   by the desire to gnaw.

The desire to gnaw 
and taste everything is common to puppies   of all breeds, but as adults, different 
breeds have varying degrees of propensity   to explore the world with their teeth. 
Maltese is not prone to such pranks.
  Activity and energy level.
According to the level of charge and activity,   breeds can also be divided into active and calm 
or even lazy. An active dog will require constant   walks, training and frequent mental stimulation 
from you. Calm and less energetic dogs will be   happy with short walks around the house and will 
gladly share your desire to lie on the couch at   home. This feature should be taken into account 
when choosing a pet, since the unfulfilled needs   of an active animal will be realized at home on 
the things and objects of your home. The amount of   energy in the dog also determines with what desire 
and for how long the dog will play games with you   or with your child under your supervision.
Maltese Very active dog, loves to play outdoors.   Runs very fast and loves to jump.

and very smart, curious. A real little friend,   devoted, brave, sincere, loves the owner, his 
relatives and friends. It is impossible to resist   the charm and liveliness of this dog.
Maltese are very inventive and playful.   Due to their small size, they can easily 
turn an apartment into a kind of training   ground for their fun. These dogs just love 
exercise. Maltese are very fond of playing   with the owner, for example, in catch-up.
In addition, many breeds have an innate desire to   chase moving objects and animals, the degree of 
this desire may vary from breed to breed.

If this   innate instinct is highly developed in a dog, you 
need to carefully monitor the pet during a walk   and keep it on a leash, since any moving object 
can provoke the dog to chase, even if it is a   car that can harm the animal, at such moments 
the dog can disobey the call of the owner and   switch all your attention to the moving target. 
In addition, such breeds pose an additional   danger to small domestic animals and birds.
In Maltese this instinct is highly developed,   this should be kept in mind when 
walking with your pet.
  Passion for vagrancy and love of freedom.
Some breeds have a tendency to cover long   distances on their fours, for which they were 
bred, so these dogs, following their instinct,   will not miss the opportunity to escape 
from you and run a couple of kilometers,   despite your calls.

Sled dogs, hounds and 
bloodhounds are mainly inclined to such walks.   Maltese is absolutely not inclined to run 
away from the owner or from the house.
  Tendency to drool.

The amount of saliva produced   depends on the characteristics of the breed. 
Some breeds salivate so much that they can   leave marks on the carpet, on the sofa, on the 
floor and on you, other breeds also salivate,   but this happens in much less quantities.
Luckily, Maltese produces very little saliva.   Also a big plus of Maltese is the fact 
that they leave little wool behind.
  The amount of dog hair in your home and on your 
clothes depends a lot on what breed you choose,   some breeds shed all year round, others 
only seasonally, others hardly shed.   This characteristic of the breed can 
be important depending on where you   plan to keep the pet, whether members of 
your family are allergic to animal hair,   and how important it is to 
you in general.
  General health of the breed 
on a 10-point scale.
  The general health of dogs of this breed 
and the possibility of the appearance of   genetic diseases in them can be assessed 
on a ten-point scale of 7 points, that is,   they are quite healthy dogs with a minimum 
number of genetically predisposed diseases.
  The most frequently recorded visual impairment, 
damage to the teeth and gums, as well as   hypoglycemia.

Please note that dry food should be 
present in your dog's diet in small quantities;   otherwise, Maltese's digestion may be upset. 
Maltese is predisposed to bronchial asthma. When   choosing a puppy, be careful, take your time and 
carefully study the parents' medical records.
  The average life expectancy of Maltese 
is 12 to 14 years..
