If you are living in an apartment , condominium, or house with a small yard and looking to add a furry friend to your family, you may want to consider looking at Maltese puppies. Maltese puppies have several qualities that make them suitable for apartment living. Here are a few of the pros and cons of the breed:
1) The Maltese breed is a relatively low energy dog and does not require a high level of exercise. They will do fine roaming a small yard or with a daily walk outside. They are also known to be quite active indoors and may do fine with a few indoor play sessions every day.
2) The Maltese is known for getting along well with other non-canine species that may also do well in an apartment, such as a cat or ferret.
3) Typically only reaching between 4-6 pounds, the Maltese is a small dog that does not require a lot of space. This may come as a very attractive quality when searching for a breed that will do well in tighter living conditions.
