Maltese VS Toy Poodle. “A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.” By Josh Billings. This quote is the reason I chose this topic, animals are very important among humans and especially to me.

Since they are both small breeds they both have a small litter, but Maltese often have fewer puppies than a poodle. Toy Poodles usually bark more than Maltese meaning that they are more alert and protective. The last detail I should point out would be their origin. Maltese came from Italy and Malta while Toy Poodles migrated from Germany. The differences are small things, but at the end of the day, both breeds would be your best
