The Maltese is named for the small Mediterranean island nation of Malta, but its origins are probably in the Middle East. Roman noblewomen prized the Maltese for its appearance, and Maltese have been linked to Malta since the 1st century. As they have been companion dogs for millennia, Maltese love people, and are very popular as show dogs due to their lively gait.
