Tiny Maltese Puppy - Pork Chop

3lbs of awesome.
At only 3lbs, my tiny Maltese puppy Pork Chop might seem like a fragile dog, but he's actually anything but. Pork Chop loves to run around outside and patrol the yard. His sense of duty has even earned him the nickname "lieutenant." He keeps an eye on his neighbors and make's sure they say hi to him before he lets them continue their day in non-barking peace.
If he's not lying in front of the heater, he's basking outside in the sun or stretched out on his back in his owner's lap. He's a total lap dog and loves to be held. Pork Chop also loves to chew on his rubber chicken "Barry," started playing fetch at only 10 weeks, and now we can't get him to stop.
My Maltese puppy is more cat-like than a dog, and loves to swat at the strings of window blinds or roll around on his back kicking his toys in the air.
