A crossbreed between the Maltese and the Yorkshire Terrier, the Morkie, also affectionately known as the Yorktese or Morkshire Terrier was first bred in the 1990’s here in the United States as a designer puppy. Since then it has gained considerable popularity for its perfect combination of intelligence and beauty. While, these dogs make for sweet, loyal, and loveable pets, they can often become quite bullheaded and territorial if not properly trained early on. Prior experience with a smaller breed is recommended.
The Morkie is one of the most popular designer dog breeds in the United States. It charms with a cute, toy-size stature and a big personality.
Appearance and Grooming
Though the coats tend to be soft, rather long, and hypoallergenic with colors typically ranging from solid white to black and tan and every color and combination in between, it is difficult to predict each litter. The unpredictable diversity is what makes these pooches so desirable. Regardless of its coat, this crossbreed needs to be brushed several times a week to keep the hair from matting or tangling. In addition to routine brushing, regular bathing is important to keep their coat healthy and lush.
Despite their tiny size, this breed makes for a spirited and intelligent pet. Its inherited sense of fearlessness and energy from its Maltese parent shines through as these dogs are easily excitable and happy to greet anybody they meet. Underneath all of that energy and sometimes mischief these dogs are true lap dogs with a truly sweet and loving nature.
Family and Companionship
The Morkie is an obedient and loyal pup, and its friendly personality helps it to make fast connections. It doesn’t like to be alone and suffers when it’s not appreciated and loved. It loves to play or curl up on the couch for a nap and requires frequent human companionship. Its loyalty and devotion tend to make this devoted dog very protective of its owner and family.
Morkies are adaptable and easy-going pooches. And while their size makes them ideal pets for apartment dwellers, they can be a problem for your neighbors as they love to bark. When left alone, this little yapper will bark until someone comes home to be with him, which doesn’t bode well for good relationships with close neighbors. This loveable ball of fluff is perfect for an owner who can take them wherever they go.
This breed doesn’t require too much exercise. A couple of brisk walks throughout the day and some active play time will provide the exercise your puppy needs to stay healthy and fit. Morkies should never be left off leash or unattended during outside play unless they are in a securely fenced-in area. If you live in an area where birds of prey are known to roam, you must pay particular attention and avoid leaving your pooch unattended.
Training and Socialization
As a Maltese and Yorkie mix, this designer breed has the Yorkshire’s intelligence and the Maltese's eager-to-please personality and therefore is easily trainable. However, it can be a little bit stubborn which may require a gentle, firm, and patient trainer. It is imperative for Morkie puppies to be properly trained at a young age. These pint size puppies have strong personality traits and think they are much larger than they actually are.

Is it hard to train a Morkie? A Morkie is spirited with a streak of independency and stubbornness, which can make training a challenge. Alternatively, they are eager to please and love attention. With consistency, patience and plenty of positive reinforcement this little one will be following your lead in no time.
Is the Morkie high maintenance when it comes to grooming? The short answer is, yes. The Morkie has longer hair than can become easily tangled and matted.

Sophie is the best dog I have ever had! She is so sweet and gives so much love to her family! She has managed to become the most loved in our family! She will always snuggle with you at anytime of the day, but also enjoys playing with her toys. We bought her 6 years ago, and it was a great experience! Premier Pups was very helpful and reliable!

We adopted Banjo (formerly Eric) in November of 2020. We had never owned a dog before but our girls had begged for years. After long discussions, we decided to surprise them. Banjo has been such a wonderful addition to the family and Premier Pups was excellent to work with! They followed up closely on Banjo his first couple of weeks home and have continued to stay in touch over a year later.

Gracie, previously Duchess, joined our family in late January of this year. It was as smooth as it could be dealing with Premier Pups. They were so professional, so caring, and so thorough. They even reached out yesterday to wish Gracie a happy birthday. We can't say enough wonderful things about the owner and staff. Gracie is a happy, healthy, full of energy pup and has made our house a home again (our previous doggo passed in 2020). Thank you, Premier Pups, for being so great to work with!
