Yes, Your Maltese has a Nationality!
Let's take a look at the history of the Maltese dog.
Where did the Maltese come from and what are its origins? The Maltese breed has been on this world for at least 29 centuries. Dating back so far has caused a bit of debate as to the exact origin of the dog.
However, evidence shows that the Maltese breed most definitely became abundant on the Island of Malta.
This small, beautiful isle is off the coast of Italy. Because this dog, although perhaps originating elsewhere, began to flourish in Malta, this is the official location of Maltese origin; giving this wonderful breed its name.
