I just read this on a web site - it made for interesting reading . Maltese were first seen in the United States in the late 1800's , and were participants in the earliest Westminster Kennel Club shows in the 1870's . There was a period when tan or mottled-colored Maltese were highly regarded . . In fact , the first Maltese registered in the U.S was white with black ears . However , as a sign of things to come the first Maltese exhibited in America was ' solid white ' ( as are all members of the breed today ) . I personally think it would have been totally COOL to have colored Maltese - it's a pity the first breeders got rid of it !!! Sarah

I know - some breeders personal taste was WHITE - so no more colors ( boo hiss ) . Princess Charlotte has a sister that is white with black ears , like the first registered Maltese - she looks adorable just like Snoopy . Imagine a black Maltese - actually Princess Charlotte has a solid black brother , it looks FANTASTIC . Sarah P.S I do like white as well , but multi colors are pretty !!!

I think a black and white maltese would look so cute! If anyone was selling them, id get a new puppy.

i guess i'm the oddball here....i absolutely love the pure white. that's one of the reasons i wanted a maltese. don't get me wrong, i think dogs with coloring are beautiful...like charm's waffle... i think he's fantastic! if i were to ever want a dog with coloration, i would get one, but i wanted a white maltese.

Well that's the thing you would have the choice of white AND color - they only bred out the colored ones since World War 1 - so not that long ago . Sarah
