appearance

Appearance

Compact & White
The Maltese is small and compact. They have small, round heads with small drop ears, bright, dark, round, button eyes, and a small dark nose. Little black lips that poke through their white beard complete the adorable look.

They have pure white fur that is typically straight with a silky and soft texture. Their fur can grow to be quite long if properly brushed and left untrimmed, but most Maltese parents keep their hair trimmed for a lower-maintenance look. Because they don’t have an undercoat, they are considered hypoallergenic and can be a great choice for those with allergies.

When the Maltese is shown, it is reminiscent of a graceful little cloud that floats across the floor with a gentle, light step and long fur that touches the ground.

They are very small, only about 10 inches tall and usually weighing from 4 to 8 pounds.
