I’ve added two Malteses illustration to my CafePress and Zazzle shops. They are also available through CKC Embroidery and Dog Mom Dog Designs. I’ve included both a show coat and a pet cut, since most Maltese are not kept in a full coat.
The Maltese is a toy dog that is covered from head to toe in silky white hair. They are gentle and affectionate, and known for being lively and playful. They are very fast learners, if they feel they are sufficiently rewarded.While many toy breeds are bred down from larger sized dogs, the first Maltese is the same size we see today. The breed has been an aristocrat of the canine world for over 28 centuries.
