Differnece between a maltese and a shih tzu?

I'm trying to convince my mom to get a dog, but I want to know all the details about the dog before I get one. So, I'm debating between a shih tzu and a maltese. Could you tell me the big differences between the two dogs? Please and thanks!

PS. Oh and please don't answer saying "if your mom doesn't want a dog your not getting it". And other rude answers, please.
