Maltese Characteristics

Notable for their iconic floor-length coat, Maltese are precocious, playful, and affectionate companions. Maltese are quite small, typically weighing less than seven pounds. Their long, straight coat sets them apart from other breeds and makes them look quite high fashion! Maltese are very alert and can make good watchdogs, and they are formidable athletes on the agility course.

Fast Facts

  • Energy
  • Size
  • Trainability

Maltese are the quintessential "fancy dog." They typically weigh less than 7 pounds, and their 7-9 inches of stature is often completely covered in their iconic floor-length coat, which can come in brown, black, or white. However, their somewhat snooty appearance is easily balanced by their playful and loyal personalities. 

 

Believe it or not, Maltese are considered relatively low-shedding dogs. This, coupled with their compact size, makes them a perfect companion for condo and apartment living. Maltese are happy to make new friends of all ages. Sometimes stubborn and willful, they respond well to rewards-based training. This ability to be trained makes them fierce competitors in such dog sports as agility, obedience, rally, and tracking.

 

Although they look delicate and aristocratic, Maltese can have a lot of energy. Because they have a long history as companion dogs, Maltese require a lot of human attention and suffer from separation anxiety. If left alone for hours each day, they can bark and become destructive. Thirty minutes of exercise is the recommended daily minimum to keep these pups happy and healthy. 

 

These dogs also have a tendency to lack patience around small children and other dogs, especially if they have been pampered by their humans on a regular basis. Ensuring these dogs are socialized properly as puppies will allow them to play happily with others instead of becoming defensive and protective.

How dog-friendly is Oklahoma?

We have a few different studies to rank Oklahoma, and overall it’s a pretty great place to own a pet! 


Two major studies ranked all 50 states by several factors related to pet-friendliness. They evaluated indicators like access to pet services and veterinary care, animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, outdoor space, and dog parks. 


The first study, by an animal safety group called Pawsafe, ranked Oklahoma quite well as the 16th most pet-friendly state in the country. The state scored well with Pawsafe for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Another broad study, conducted by a consumer safety review site called Safewise, didn’t rank the state quite as well. Oklahoma came in 33rd most pet-friendly state in the country according to Safewise. 


However, if we take the two studies together, Oklahoma is good to average in the pet-friendliness category.

Are cities in Oklahoma pet-friendly?

We also considered a study from Wallethub that surveyed the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness. Here’s how Oklahoma’s largest city stacked up.

Tulsa

Tulsa ranked 27th overall, scoring 15th in pet budget, 58th in pet health and wellness, and 50th in outdoor pet-friendliness.


A Trust for Public Land (TPL) study also reviewed the country’s 100 largest cities. They ranked all 100 by which have the most dog parks per capita. Tulsa ranked in 78th place, with 0.5 dog parks per 100,000 people.

Forty-six out of 116 of the animal shelters within Oklahoma are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is average, and the state has a below-average save rate of 77%. This is below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state.
