Smart Morkie - Patton
I got my Morkie Patton from my boyfriend's mom who didn't have time to care for him anymore since her sons were all in college and she traveled a lot. He is around 3 years old and 15 pounds. They expected him to be closer to 5 pounds but he just kept growing! I love it because he can still be on my lap (but hates it) but isn't small enough to be fragile. At home he's a very calm dog who is willing to accept attention but doesn't constantly bug you about it. I've heard Morkies bark a lot but he doesn't other than when he hears door bells, knocks, or the animal channel. This dog loves exercise and will walk, and walk, and walk if you let him. If he doesn't get enough exercise, he can get a bit restless and excitable. He is always happy and loves to meet people, usually giving them a smooch on the face. He loves saying hi to children the most. This Morkie is extremely smart (and sneaky) and understands a lot. Most times I talk to him as a regular person and he understands. One example is telling him his bone is on the bed or in the living room when he's sniffing around. He'll look at me then run off and come back with it. They are very smart dogs so don't underestimate them. He is also fairly easy to train (mine rings a bell when he wants to go outside). But there are issues with going potty in the house. He knows he's not supposed to but every once in a while he'll do it. Sometimes it's just random, at other times it's because of the weather(he's afraid of storms so he'll hide and won't come out for the day). Otherwise he's an amazing and adorable dog that I am so happy to have in my life. And he knows it!
