This breed was bred for centuries to enjoy cuddling up to us. Some were prized for being "healing" dogs who would lay across their masters chest to draw out illness. Not every Maltese will do this exactly this way, but I would say it is part of the breed.

She loves for me to stand and hold her while she rests her head on my shoulder. If I'm lying down she will lie across my chest and snuggle her nose under my arm. She would also rest her head right next to mine and snuggle her nose in my hair. Or sleep up over my head like a halo. They just love to be near you weather ya beside you or on you they don't like to be left out. Just think of it as your own little hotwater bottle!! I love getting my snuggles off daisy now.
Oh my gosh, you described my dogs to the T!!! I love it when they cuddle on me!!

Talya, Maltese were bred to be 'lap dogs' long ago.

I think no one ever told them where the 'lap' was!!!

Sawyer does this occasionally and Sebastian does this all the time!!!! We don't find it odd that the boys crawl up to our chests & curl around our necks. We find it odd that they often turn around & intentionally back up until their heinies are in our faces. So what's up with THAT?


We can sometimes resist temptation...but never mischief.
