Introduction

General information

  • Originated in the Mediterranean, probably Malta, through the agency of the ancient Phoenician traders.
  • Its size and good nature make it an ideal companion.
  • Its long heavy white coat needs constant grooming to prevent tangles and matting (a problem especially with puppies when their adult coat starts to grow through at around 8 months of age). This coat, however, does not shed.
  • It relishes exercise but will adapt to a quieter lifestyle.
