With all the TV noise in the background, this sweet Maltese is dozing off, with one ear perked up, as if trying to keep up with what’s going on, or simply bothered by the noise. At different points of the TV program, the dialogue sound a bit monotone. It was working like a lullaby to this sweet dog. Many people do fall in front of the TV, not because the program is boring, but probably because the dialogue is at a soothing pace. Dogs can also be soothed by a monotone rhythm in sound.
Characteristics of Maltese
Maltese are bred as companion dogs. Their purpose in life is to love and be loved. The Maltese knows the secret to youth: they keep a puppy attitude throughout their life. Equivalent to our “staying childlike”. The Maltese originates from Malta some 2000 years ago, and has always been a companion dog, according to Vet Street. Even though they are cuddle buddies and it’s tempting to carry them around in your arms or your purse, they do need their exercise.
And they love to learn new skills. They enjoy showing off what they learn. So let them. Maltese is a dog that requires maintenance. Their coat needs regular care, otherwise they get tangled and matted. To keep them looking show dog gorgeous, you might invest in professional grooming. Don’t those button eyes look stunning against their white hair? It takes a lot of time to clean away those tear stains, which can have a discoloration, which is harmless. Maltese is a wonderful pet for many. It probably is better not to match them with families with very young children because being so tiny, it is easy to injure them if children play too rough with them. Or if they were frightened or hurt, they might snap at a child in self-defense.
