Morkies, also known as Yorktese, are a delightful and popular hybrid dog breed created by crossing a Yorkshire Terrier with a Maltese. These small-sized dogs inherit the best traits from both parent breeds, making them incredibly charming and affectionate companions. Morkies are known for their adorable appearance, friendly temperament, and playful nature, making them a favorite choice for dog lovers seeking a lovable and portable pet.

Physical Characteristics:

Morkies typically weigh between 4 to 8 pounds (1.8 to 3.6 kg) and stand around 6 to 9 inches (15 to 23 cm) tall. They have a silky, long coat that can come in a variety of colors, including black, white, brown, and combinations of these shades. Due to their small size, they are well-suited for apartment living.


Morkies are affectionate, lively, and intelligent dogs. They are known for their friendly and social nature, making them excellent family pets. They are good with children and other pets, and they tend to form strong bonds with their owners. Morkies are also known to be alert and make excellent watchdogs, as they are quick to alert their families about any unusual activities.


Morkies have a long, silky coat that requires regular grooming to prevent tangles and matting. Regular brushing is essential to keep their fur in good condition. Additionally, their ears should be checked and cleaned regularly to prevent infections. Morkies may also need professional grooming to maintain their coat.

Exercise Needs:

While Morkies are small, they are still active dogs that enjoy playtime and short walks. Daily exercise is essential to keep them physically and mentally stimulated. Interactive toys and indoor games can also help meet their exercise needs, especially on days when outdoor activities are limited.


Morkies are intelligent and eager to please, making them relatively easy to train. Positive reinforcement techniques, such as praise and treats, work well in training these dogs. Early socialization and consistent training from a young age are crucial to ensure they grow up to be well-behaved and confident adults.

Health Considerations:

Like all dog breeds, Morkies are prone to certain health issues, including dental problems, patellar luxation (knee joint dislocation), and eye conditions. Regular veterinary check-ups, a balanced diet, and regular exercise can contribute to their overall well-being.
