The Morkie is a crossbreed of the Yorkshire Terrier and the Maltese. In addition, this doggo goes by a couple of other nicknames, such as the Malkie, Maltiyork, Yorkiemalt, or the Yorktese. It’s unknown when this dog breed came to be, but this designer breed was first developed in the United States to be a companion dog. There’s a lot to love about this mixed breed. For example, they take some of the best qualities from their parent breeds. For example, the Morkie is playful, entertaining, and attention-seeking.

If you’re looking for a loveable lap dog, then this designer dog might be the right choice for you. For example, the Morkie is loyal and affectionate with its family members. They’re also good around young children, other dogs, and meeting new people. However, they need early socialization and training. Morkies prefer to be the center of attention, so training is ideal for letting them get used to sharing the spotlight. Despite its small size, this crossbreed is an excellent watchdog. They’ll bark a lot to alert you of something but also if they want your attention or simply want to hear themselves talk.

Morkie – A Loyal Dog

Morkies are small dogs. For example, they can grow to be about eight to ten inches tall and weigh between four and seven pounds. Their appearance can look like either parent breed when it comes to their appearance. However, the Morkie typically has a long, straight coat that’s white. They require regular grooming so that you can bring them to a professional grooming salon once every other month for a good cleaning. In addition, they shed a moderate amount. So, you’ll want to brush their coat at least once a day to keep the shedding under control.

Finally, they have moderate energy levels. So, they can do well in an apartment or a bigger house with a fenced-in yard, as long as they get their daily exercise.
