Many people always ask me what exactly I can tell them about the Maltese? They ask questions like, “ What is the personality and temperament like?” I found the below article several years ago and thought it did a fine job of explaining the Maltese.
Toy? Who, Me? by Lisa Hanks
The tiny Maltese, weighing in at less than 7 pounds, is a vision of beauty—almost too gorgeous to be real. Who would have suspected that under its beautiful, flowing, white tresses, and cute-as-a-button black eyes and nose, lurks the body and spirit of a much larger dog? No fragile lap ornament, the Maltese is a sturdy, compact, gracefully muscular dog—albeit a small one. The Maltese is more than happy to recline on a lap, but the Maltese is just as thrilled to romp and play, often displaying its quick intelligence and devilish sense of humor.
Not a timed wallflower, either, the Maltese announces invasions of its territory with a spirited barking. Once introduced, however, this friendly, gentle soul can charm the mailbag off a postman. In fact the Maltese can be so fearless and trusting that owners must be ready to defuse potentially dangerous situations, such as hard play with a much bigger dog or rough handling from children.
Properly introduced, the Maltese can participate in all the big-dog activities, such has competing in obedience, free style dancing to music and hiking trails (for short distances). The Maltese will also challenge agility obstacles with as much spirit and determination, if not the same speed, as the big dogs. Watching the Maltese long locks fly behind this tiny whirlwind as it charges up an A-frame, trying to gain the momentum to scamper over the top, is an unforgettable and heart-lifting sight
