Hello all, I used to have a cute little maltese dog back in 2011, it deceased because he was getting old. He was given to us by an old lady who had to move where they could not keep dogs.

I like to refer to this dog as a "companion dog". What I love about this dog is that they get very attached to their owner, but they don't like to be separated from their owners for too long and i've noticed this. It's a very elegant dog and he can adapt into any situation. Whenever I went to the bathroom, my dog used to be waiting at the door for me! It's a very calm dog that can be brought to a home or even an appartement.

It's not necessary to walk with him for hours, but he did need his daily excersise. He also had to be groomed every day, or he will look very unhealty or not taken care of.
