Our Maltese is very stubborn, jealous and vindictive. He barks at everything, pees/marks things when he doesn't get his way and growls at our 1 year old son. He is perfect for maybe an older woman who is looking for a lap dog, but beware if you have young children, carpet or enjoy peace and quiet. We have tried retraining his behavior but are getting close to rehoming him somewhere where he can be "an only child/dog"... He is great to cuddle with, but becomes jealous if any other pets or people want your attention.
