Yorkie, Morkie, Maltese
Yorkshire Terriers are a relatively new breed; they came into being in the late 1800s, bred to chase down rats and other vermin in the mines and factories of Victorian England. They’re smart, feisty and loyal.
Maltese dogs look similar to the Yorkie, except their hair is pure white. Sometimes Maltese are called “terriers” but they are not.
Maltese have been around for thousands of years. Ancient Greek urns from about 500 B.C. depicted the Maltese, and historians believe Egyptian pharaohs worshipped them.
Bred as lapdogs, Maltese are gentle and sweet-natured. They stay puppy-like well into their adult years.
Both the Yorkie and the Maltese have HAIR not FUR. That means they don’t shed gobs of fuzzy fur like most dogs. They’re great for people with allergies. No surprise that their offspring, the Morkie, has a non-shedding coat too.
Morkies come in a wide range of colours and combine the characteristics of both parents, to produce a unique and lovable little dog.
This book has been really helpful while we tried to decide what dog to get. I have never owned a dog before, so these tips and insights were great.
Excellent book. If you are planning on getting a puppy and you want a small dog that doesn’t shed, this is the book for you.
