Thinks He's a Big Dog in a Small Package

A Maltese is not for everyone. They require constant grooming to keep their fur mat-free and looking nice. Specialized shampoos help maintain the white color of the coat.

I have owned TP for two years. He is wonderful with my two children (ages 10 and 12) but he hates all other children. He will growl and bark, especially at toddlers. At this point, I just try to keep him away from children.

I have trained many dogs in obedience but TP is not an obedience champ. He knows the basics but he is easily distracted and would rather lay on the couch with a chew toy. Overall, he is a sweet little dog that is a great companion.
