Maltese Yorkie Mix - Morkie Dogs

AKA: Yorktese, Malkie, Yorkshire Terrier - Maltese Hybrid

Yorkie Maltese Mix Maltese Yorkie Mix Morkie

The Maltese Yorkie mix, also called a Morkie, Malkie, or Yorktese is a cross
between a Yorkshire Terrier and a Maltese.

These mixed breed dogs are often given specific names, but keep in mind that they are not a seperate dog breed.

According to Morkie owners, these dogs have an affectionate personality and beautiful coloring. Read more about this Maltese mix below.

Please do not purchase these dogs from a breeder. There is no need to create more mutts when plenty are available for adoption. If you discover a Maltese mix that would fit well with your family, you can easily adopt one at a Maltese Dog Rescue instead (and for a lot less money)!

Personality

Morkie dogs take on the temperament of both Yorkies and Maltese. They are bold, energetic little dogs.

They are also highly intelligent and easy to train, but can be difficult to housebreak. They are sometimes suspsious of strangers and can serve as a good watchdog.

Morkies and Morkie puppies do best with older children as younger children under the age of 10 years old can accidently injure this tiny dog. Most people find them to have the mellowness of a Maltese and the tenacity of a terrier.

Appearance

A Yorkie Maltese mix can create various mixtures of hair color, hair type, and size. Most Morkie dogs hair will include some brown and black from the Yorkie and maybe a little white from the Maltese.

Hair is usually wavy and grows continuously like human hair. Therefore, they need consistant grooming by either brushing regularly or keeping a short puppy cut.

They are also nonshedding and most are hypoallergenic. Full grown Morkies average 6-9 lbs. This is about the same size as a purebred Maltese.
