Breed origins

The adjective “Maltese” comes from the Semitic word “MALAT” which means refuge or port. This Semitic root is found in a whole series of names of maritime places. The ancestors of this small dog lived in the ports of the maritime cities of the Central Mediterranean, where they battled the rats and mice that swarmed in the port stores and in the holds of the ships. This dog was known in ancient Rome as a favorite companion of midwives. The Maltese Bichon appears in representations of numerous painters of the Renaissance where it is seen in the salons of the time accompanying the beautiful ladies of that time.
