The History Section Cleaned[edit]

The history section starts with an apparently spurious claim about the Latin name of the breed. The source cited makes no mention of canis melitaeus. Besides, canis melitaeus appears in very different connection in some other sources. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sjlain (talkcontribs) 17:43, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

Dogs[edit]

Hi, I'm crystal and I'm looking for a perfect dog that is hyperallergic since my stepdad and I are a little allergic. Here are the character traits I'm looking for:

- Intelligent enough to learn tricks -White -Hyperallergic -Playful -Not Big But Not Small

Thank you!

Grooming info without sources[edit]

Some of the grooming info lacks a source. Notably, the following claim is somewhat contradicted by the source in the citation following it:

Many owners find that a weekly bath is sufficient for keeping the coat clean, although it is recommended to not wash a dog so often, so washing every three weeks is sufficient, although if the dog keeps clean even longer than that.

The nearest succeeding citation links to http://www.petwave.com/Dogs/Breeds/Maltese/Appearance.aspx, which says:

Maltese get dirty very easily and regular brushing can mean the difference between bathing the dog every week, or every two to three weeks.

While the timeframes stated are similar, as a reader, I'm interested in all the steps I need to take to keep my dog clean, not just how long to go between baths. If there are important factors that change how often a dog needs to be bathed, I'd like to know that.

I'm not qualified enough to know which of these statements is closer to professional consensus or whether this is a well-respected source in the industry. As such, I'm leaving the existing statement, but marking it as dubious. I would appreciate if someone with more experience could make an informed decision as to what information should be included, with appropriate citations.

Removal of picture from article[edit]

Hello everyone, I have removed the image "Maltese dog behavior" from the article because it wasn't descriptive enough to show the actual "behavioral traits" of the dog breed. Please add a good image in the place of the old one. Thank you, Dinan Blueje (talk) 01:08, 31 August 2019 (UTC)
