A Maltese is a small breed of dog with white fur that does not shed. Adult Maltese range from 5 to 15 lb (2.5 to 7 kg). They are easy to train and enjoy playing. The standard type is for a straight, silky coat. Some individuals may have curly or woolly hair, but this is considered to be outside the desirable standard. Maltese do not have an undercoat. The breed has a reputation for having a good-natured temperament but is also fearless and may be intolerant of children and other pets.
