The Maltese in my life have always been very affectionate and attached to their owners. They are a true "lapdog." Mine have always barked a little more than what I would like, but seeing as they are very non-threatening, it hasn't really been an issue. My most recent Maltese received more training than the others, and she picked up on most tricks fairly well. She has a lot of character and loves attention. Maltese require professional grooming, which can be costly. However, their hypo-allergenic coat doesn't shed (except for a few hairs here and there, like humans), and is a huge help to people who are concerned with keeping a clean living space.
