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 separate 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)!

Maltese Yorkie Mix 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 suspicious 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 accidentally injure this tiny dog. Most people find them to have the mellowness of a Maltese and the tenacity of a terrier.

Maltese Yorkie Appearance

A Maltese Yorkie 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 consistent grooming by either brushing regularly or keeping a short puppy cut.

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