The devotion and fearlessness are, of course, not minus, and plus character of a maltese, however depends on the owner whether it will be able to control behavior of the dog. These kids desperately rush on protection of the owner – not very well, from other dog or from the person, without reckoning with the opponent's sizes.

Character of a maltese in relation to children
A maltese – not the most suitable option for family with small children (8 years are younger). But not because the character of a maltese interferes with it. At all not, just small children who do not control the actions yet can unintentionally do harm to the fragile pet. Therefore if all of you decided to bring a maltese to family with children, your task – to ensure safety of a dog.
However the maltese can become the cheerful and devoted friend for the child of advanced age who is already capable to be responsible for the actions.
