The Morkie breed is crossbred between Maltese and Yorkshire Terriers. Not only are Morkies devoted to their humans, but they also get along well with other small dogs and cats. Morkies make great lap dogs and are best for people who spend most of their time at home to give them the love and attention they need.
Morkies are a small dog breed. The typical adult Morkie only weighs between 4 and 8 pounds. The average adult height runs between 6 and 8 inches tall. Since Morkies are so petite and delicate, their owners must take care not to accidentally step on them or crush them. For this reason, Morkies are not recommended for families with small children.
Morkies are perfectly content to go on a few small walks a day or to fetch any balls you throw. The Morkie dog breed benefits most from households where there is usually someone home at all times. This is because Morkies can easily get lonely and bored, which is a recipe for barking and destructive behaviors. Be sure to schedule plenty of playtime with your Morkie puppy or dog.
Since Morkies are a hybrid dog breed, it can be difficult to accurately predict the color or coat style. In general, your Morkie dog will have long fur that needs to be brushed several times a week.
