Maltese Yorkie Mix
Maltese Yorkie Mix is a cross of purebred Maltese and a purebred Yorkshire Terrier, also known as Morkie, or Morkshire Terrier. Morkies are relatively small dogs at about 6 to 8 inches tall, weighing around 4 to 8 pounds, while Teacup Morkies are tinnier. Morkies average lifespan is between 10 to 13 years. They also tend to latch on to one family member most of all, though they can get along with others in the house. Morkies may be best suited to a one-person home or smaller families, as they demand quite a bit of attention.
More About Maltese Yorkie Mix
Morkie coats can vary in color, from black, brown, white, or a mix of these colors. Their coats can even change colors as they grow.
Both of the Morkie’s parent breeds don’t shed much, and the Morkie inherited this trait. They are not, however, considered to be hypoallergenic.
Morkies are small and can be easily injured. They’d do best in a home with adults or older children who know how to play gently.
The Morkie is a small dog with a big dog personality. They have high energy and may be a bit stubborn when it comes to training.
Morkies demand a lot of attention and may do best in a single-person or single-pet household. That said, they can be socialized, especially from an early age, and get along just fine with other people and pets.
