Origin The Maltese breed originated from Malta and dates back to 1500 B.C. The breed's description was recorded by Greek philosopher Theophrastus. In his writings he mentioned that the Maltese were from Melita, an archaic name for Malta. They have also been found portrayed in ancient Egyptian statuary. Publius, the Roman governor of Malta had such a fondness for this breed that he commissioned a portrait of "Issa" and had poetry written about his favorite Maltese. Over the years, the breed was further developed with the addition of miniature spaniel and poodle blood. Maltese were brought to England by knights returning from the Crusades. The breed's popularity increased during the reign of Queen Elizabeth when women of the royal court carried these dogs in their sleeves and used them for bed warmers. The first Maltese appeared in the United States in 1877. They are recognized by the AKC and the UKC.
