This popular toy dog is simply adorable. He packs in white fluffy fur, a black button nose and saucer-sized eyes into a tiny little body weighing less than 7 pounds. Charming, playful and sweet, this pup brightens up any household. It’s no wonder the Maltese is one of the most popular toy dog breeds.
This breed has been in existence for nearly 3,000 years, as evidenced by their presence in ancient paintings, statues and ceramic art. Considering how adaptable the Maltese is, it’s no wonder they survived for so long.
With his long, white locks, it’s important to brush him daily and groom him often to keep him looking great.
