how many times can a female maltese give birth in a life time
A good breeder/owner will wait to start breeding a dog until after the second heat (so around 2 years of age), then breed every other year until the dog is 8 years old (for a small breed dog). So following those guidelines, you could get about 4 litters from a maltese, providing she got pregnant at the desired heat cycle.
