A Morkie is the result of breeding a purebred Yorkshire Terrier and a purebred Maltese dog. Morkies are also bred with one another.
A Morkie’s looks, personality and health come from both breeds, and not always in equal proportions.
Like their parents, Morkies are anywhere from about 5 pounds to 8 pounds or more. They are between 6″and 10″ high at the shoulder. Morkies have a compact body, and a rounded canine head with mid-length muzzle.
Morkies have big brown or black eyes and a playful, mischievous expression.
