Maltese dogs were bred specifically to be companions, and the breed is prized for their small size. They typically weigh less than eight pounds, making them ideal as traveling companions or as residents of small apartments and assisted living facilities!

These dogs are loyal, affectionate, and very loving. They don’t require a bunch of vigorous exercise, just a moderate walk around the block every now and then.
