Country of Origin: United States. Morkies, also known as Yorktese, are a cross between a Yorkshire Terrier and a Maltese.

Size: It can be difficult to determine the size of a Morkie due to the fact that the offspring can take on characteristics from each breed involved. Generally Morkie's range in height between 6-15 inches and weigh between 5-15 pounds.

Coat: Typically, the coat of the Morkie is silky, straight and fine. Usually the hair is long and comes in a variety of colors such as black, tan, white, a combination of each, sable, etc.

Character: The Morkie is a lively, spirited, intelligent and loving dog. The mix of Maltese and Yorkshire Terrier usually produces a lively, playful dog devoted to its family with a loving sweet nature. The Morkie loves to play or curl up on the couch for a nap and requires frequent human companionship.

Temperament: The Morkie will do well with other dogs and non-canine pets that they have been raised with. If left alone too long, a Morkie may become bored and destructive along with incessant barking. They long for human companionship. The Morkie is suspicious of strangers and will alert the family to a stranger's presence as well as any sounds that appear out of the ordinary.

Care: The Morkie requires daily brushing to keep the hair from matting and tangling. Bathe when necessary and be sure to use a mild shampoo to avoid skin reactions.

Training: The Morkie should be socialized at an early age. Morkies can be a bit stubborn and require a gentle but firm and patient trainer. Special emphasis should be put on potty-training as some Morkies can be difficult to housebreak.

Activity: A Morkie is well suited for apartment living as long as they are sufficiently exercised and have toys to play with. They enjoy family play time, walks and play time in a fenced yard.
