3 morkie puppies in wicker basket

You can see how different Morkies can look from one another. A combination of Yorkshire Terrier and Maltese, Morkies can take on characteristics of both.

If you google “Morkies” you’ll find a ton of people selling Morkie puppies, some fans and some real haters out there. Why the negative response to so-called “designer dogs?”

Some people, me included, object to ‘back yard breeders.’  These are people who are into the dog business purely for the money.  You’ve heard about them and you’ve seen the heartbreaking pictures of puppy mills. Just no excuse on earth for that kind of inhumane cruelty.

But there are other breeders who are interested to see what happens when favourites like Yorkies and Maltese, are combined. Is there anything wrong with that?  I don’t think so; after all, how did ANY dog breed come into being? From combining selected offspring from litters and breeding them with one another.

Some of use like purebred dogs, some so-called mutts from the pound and others want a one-of-a-kind blend… so to all the haters out there, lighten up and enjoy!  Even the most highly bred show dog got its start somewhere!
