Overview
The Maltese is considered to be the oldest of the European Toy breeds. Nobles, royals, and aristocracy favored them. They are very well mannered and affectionate. The Maltese displays a graceful and regal demeanor.
Character
The Maltese exudes great joy and delight. They are highly intelligent, animated, and playful. They are very social. They are happy and content being the center of attention whether they are with their family or in the show ring. This endearing breed is bright, loving, and a deeply devoted companion.

Does your Maltese bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Maltese is gentle, trusting, and obedient. They are typically good natured and amiable and love to be held and cuddled. They will tolerate other pets, but are not suitable for inconsiderate or ill-behaved children. They most often will establish a close bond with one person. They do not do well when left alone for extended periods of time. They may be over-protective of their owner, family, and territory, and bark or bite if they perceive a threat. They are a fearless, vigorous, and agile breed. The Maltese commit themselves fully to their owner and families.
Care
The Maltese coat requires daily brushing and combing to prevent matting. The coat is extremely soft and silky, so gentle care is highly recommended. They need to be bathed or dry shampooed on a regular basis. The eyes need daily cleaning to prevent staining. It is also important to keep their ears clean and free from stray hair. They may be prone to eye problems, skin disorders, and respiratory problems. The Maltese do not do well in very hot climates or damp conditions. They may be finicky eaters and suffer indigestion. Dental hygiene is important to prevent tooth loss.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Maltese has an elegant mantle of long, silky hair. The coat is straight, lacks an undercoat, and is pure bright white in color. They are non-shedding. Their luxurious cloak of white is the hallmark of the Maltese.
Training
The Maltese may be difficult to housebreak so crate training is recommended. They do best with early socialization. Training must never be harsh in nature. It must be done with gentle love, consistency, reward, and patience. They are adept at learning tricks. The Maltese does not need extensive obedience training, as they are naturally obedient to their Master. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Maltese puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Maltese does not require a high level of exercise. They are suitable for apartment or condominium living. They enjoy a daily walk, indoor play sessions, or a romp and run in a secured small yard. The Maltese loves to be social, so a play date at the park is always welcomed. They must be supervised and securely leashed. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

My family and I are very experienced, respected breeders of herding dogs. We have one Maltipoo that blew me away with his charm, loyalty, and loving nature. I am debating on buying a full breed Maltese female as a companion. How do they do in a pack situation? Our Maltipoo holds his own very well, and the larger dogs have no problem with him either. Not sure about a pure breed Maltese. Spent a week a hotel with a person that had one and it barked THE WHOLE TIME! But was extremely well trained, off leash whole time, new all basic commands. Was affectionate to me, just seemed to bark like she was never taught not too, and it entertained her! I do not want a barking puppy. Is this common to the breed or was that improper training, temperament, or pure boredom? Thanks Maltese pros out there!

The Maltese is known to be a barker. They have a voice and they like to announce it. This breed is very attached to it's owners and when left alone or in a strange place, then the voice always comes out. The Maltese would do fine in a pack situation, providing that your herding dogs don't have much of a prey drive and won't see him/her as a toy to play with. However, the Maltese is a fragile dog that can not be played with hard or be allowed to jump up and down off furniture as a puppy. With proper training, socialization, a good temperament from good breeding, you should be able to keep the barking in check.

Does a Maltese need to be groomed? If so, how often and can puppies be groomed?

Yes, all Maltese need to be groomed. Whether it is a regular brushed 3 times a week or taken to a groomer to be groomed every two months. Puppies can be groomed as often as wanted. The more you groom your puppy, the more tolerant he/she will become of grooming.

We would like to purchase a Maltese dog between the ages of 1-3 years old my age. I am 67 and my wife is 69, not to be picky, a female would do. If I cannot find a Maltese between that age locally in rescues or shelters, where and how can I find one?

Rescues and shelters will be hit and miss as it all depends on if there is a Maltese of that age bracket available for adoption. Looking into breed-specific rescues is a good idea if you haven't looked already. You can also contact breeders in your area, as puppies/young dogs can be returned. As well, a breeder could keep a puppy for breeding and the dog end up with a fault and needs to be rehomed now that it's not going to be bred. Good luck!

What is the best weight for a 4 year old female Maltese? My friend"s Maltese is 11.11 lb is that overweight? She only feeds her table food.

A female Maltese should weigh between 2 - 7 lbs. So yes, your friends dog is over-weight. She should not be feeding her dog table food. Dogs should be fed a high-quality grain-free dog food.
