The Maltese is one of the most popular small dogs with white hair. They have a silky coat that can easily grow to flow if not nurtured. They have dark nose and eyes, and most people consider it as the most beautiful lap dog.
If we don’t consider their size, The Maltese is a smart and sturdy dog with an amazing personality that is suited for everyone. They can easily adapt to live in smaller apartments or large houses, but they don’t love to sleep in the backyard.
You have to maintain their fur because it will become matted if you don’t do it. They have a tendency to have stains on their faces. Even though, they have lots of hair they don’t shed that much.
