Wanting to get a Maltese and want to know about the traits of a Maltese Dogs to help you decide if a Maltese is easy to adapt into your home.
Maltese scores out of 5 in the scale of adaptability compared to other breeds.
Wishing to bring a pet dog into your home? Some dog breeds are much easier to own than others, particularly for beginner dog parents.
To identify the easiest pet dog breeds to own, we looked at a number of important attributes. And you might be amazed by the traits that matter most. For instance, you might think you want an intelligent dog. But particularly intelligent dogs aren't always the easiest to train, because trainability is more about a dog's desire to follow instructions than his capability to comprehend them.
You might believe an energetic dog will be the easiest to keep healthy. A dog with a lower energy level and no genetic predisposition to disease will actually be simpler to take care of. Additionally, choosing a dog with an easygoing temperament - and minimal grooming needs - will go a very long way toward keeping you sane.

Top 5 Easiest Dog's To Own
2. Border Terrier - The border terrier is very "joyful," "plucky," and "loving." This dog has a moderate energy level but a more laid-back personality than many other terriers.
3. Bulldog - If you want a patient and mellow canine, you can't make a mistake with the bulldog. You can successfully train your bulldog - specifically if you use lots of praise and rewards and keep a sense of humor.
4. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - They can be loyal hiking partners or shameless couch potatoes, relying on the owner's personality - as long as they get a satisfying walk each day.
5. Basset Hound - These medium-sized dogs aren't very active. And while most dog owners won't put the basset hound's hunting prowess to the test, they'll value the breed's extreme patience with children.
They are one of the most gentle mannered of all little dogs, but are also full of energy and very playful, making them great family dogs. Maltese are highly intelligent and know very well how to use their charm to get their way. If given the chance, they become easily spoiled. This isn’t a problem for dog savvy owners, but many pet owners will give in, often resulting in a pet with poor manners. It is not recommended that Maltese go to homes with young children, where as tiny puppies, there is the possibility of being stepped on or dropped by a child.
