Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Maltese Diminutive Aristocrat A favorite saying of Maltese fanciers is that a Maltese is "a big dog in a little body," and this adorable little dog lives up to their claim. Admired and treasured for its beautiful white coat, expressive eyes and gentle attitude, the Maltese is capable of very big accomplishments. The Maltese's size makes it the perfect, portable companion, and it has great crowd appeal as a show dog. A perennially popular breed, Maltese are gentle, playful, inquisitive and loving. Thought to have originated on the small Mediterranean island of Malta and long esteemed by royalty and aristocrats, the refined Maltese combines good looks with a strong physique and a clownish, endearing temperament. He is the epitome of a showman and a dedicated companion, and there is nothing in the world like owning a Maltese, whether he's a top-rated show champion or the champion mischief-maker in your household.

Synopsis:

The Maltese: Diminutive Aristocrat gives potential owners, new converts and veteran Maltese lovers all they need to know about this captivating companion. There are chapters on the Maltese's history, buying a dog, grooming, temperament, understanding the breed and the breed standard, health concerns and more. Dog shows, agility and obedience competitions and all other activities that a Maltese can participate in are discussed. Five appendices include useful resources and top dogs in the breed.
