Maltese breeders in South AfricaMaltese

 

The Maltese is a small breed of dog in the toy group. It descends from dogs originating in the Central Mediterranean Area. The breed name and origins are generally understood to derive from the Mediterranean island nation of Malta; however, the name is sometimes described with reference to the distinct Adriatic island of Mljet, or a defunct Sicilian town called Melita. Characteristics include slightly rounded skulls, with a finger-wide dome, a black button nose and chocolate brown eyes. The body is compact with the length equaling the height. The drop ears with (sometimes) long hair and, and surrounded by darker skin pigmentation (called a "halo"), gives Maltese their expressive look. Their noses can fade and become pink or light brown in color without exposure to sunlight. This is often referred to as a "winter nose" and many times will become black again with increased exposure to the sun. The Maltese is bred in white, black, brown, white & black, white & brown, and brown & black, and also tri-color (all of the three colors black, white, and brown.
