I think Tobi looks adorable in his puppy of the cutest Maltese with a puppy cut I've seen! :) ...but my favorite style IS a full coat. I have two Malts and although I love full coats, it's just too time consuming for me personally (I COULD take the time to do it, but I'd rather not! lol).

If you decide to grow his hair out, it will take about 9 months to 1 year to grow a complete coat depending on how fast his coat grows, how much damage to the coat there is/was, etc. Once his coat grows out a few inches, you can hand scissor the ends of the coat all over to even him out (the clippers break the coat and split the ends so it looks nicer to hand scissor once it grows out some). He looks like he has a nice, thick coat but I cannot tell from the photos if it is silky or cottony.

If you don't already have one, get a Madan pin will need one for his growing coat! Any pin brush without the balls at the ends of the pins will work fine. Don't use a slicker brush on him, as it will break his coat and make it impossible to grow out. Always use water or a grooming spray when you brush him out (daily, of course)...and I suppose that is all the advice you really need! :)
