Do all adult Malteses have the really long hair. Is that the way they are supposed to look? I thought I remember seeing adults with shorter hair. Can someone post some pictures of adult Malteses with shorter hair if there are any.

Thanks!

They can have shorter hair if you have it cut : P.....Try google.com and search puppy cut or teddy cut..or just short hair malt.

To keep a maltese in full coat is a LOT of work. Most maltese pet owners I know keep theirs in a short cut. I know I keep mine short. I like it and they really like it. I do, however, think a maltese in a show coat is absolutely gorgeous.

This is Sophie, although she is a mix:



And, here is Annie, she's all maltese, although not a great representation of the breed:

Unless cut, Poodle hair grows long, same as the Maltese, and mixes of the two.
I must have never see one w/its hair grown out then:)....actually I don't think I've ever actually seen a poodle with its hair long.....the longest I've see is the show cut of a standard poodle....
