Bella is our sweet Maltese momma! She was born in Ohio on July 31, 2016 and joined our family on September 2016. Bella is an AKC certified, purebred Maltese dog. She is a very docile dog when indoors, but when she gets the chance to run around outside she’s like a goat, running and jumping all around. She loves being on carried and napping on any elevated surface (especially human laps). She enjoys plenty of belly rubs and loves it when you brush her beautiful hair!
What's a Maltese?
One of the oldest of the European toy breeds, the Maltese has been a lap dog to royalty for centuries. This all-white dog has silky hair instead of fur, often making it more tolerable for those who are allergic. Maltese love to be pampered, cuddled and held, and typically form strong attachments. They are gentle and affectionate, and are easy to train, especially when training is started early. Maltese have a medium energy level and do well indoors or in Small Living Spaces. This breed is known to be by their owners’ sides at all times, and is sure to charm anyone they meet!
