Roman women were mesmerized by this little dog. Soon enough, the Maltese dog became a fashion statement of noble women in Rome.
The Maltese dog was used as a comfort dog because his little body was warm enough to relieve someone’s stomach pain.
The Maltese is thought to have repelled insects out of aristocrats’ bedrooms during medieval times.
The Maltese puppy does not mind some extra cuddling and snuggling which is why it is the perfect lap dog.
This little white dog was bred to be the most affectionate, dedicated, and loyal pup to its owner.
