Overview
The Yorktese, also called the Morkie, is created by the crossing of two breeds: Yorkshire Terrier and Maltese. They are commonly referred to as "designer dogs". The Yorktese is exceedingly popular.
Character
The ideal Yorktese is well-proportioned, sturdy, and hardy in appearance. They possess a lively and sweet expression.
Temperament
The Yorktese is not recommended for homes with small children. They are affectionate, loyal, devoted, and loving. They do well with dogs and non-canine pets they have been raised with. They bond closely to their family and do not do well if ignored or left alone for extended periods of time. Boredom and loneliness will lead to destructive behavior and incessant barking. The Yorktese is suspicious of strangers and will alert their family to strangers and out of the ordinary sounds.
Care
The Yorktese requires daily brushing to prevent matting and tangling. Bathing should be done when necessary using a mild shampoo. Dental hygiene is important to prevent early tooth loss. They may be prone to such health issues as digestive problems, sensitivity to anesthesia, slipped stifle, and skin problems.
Coat
The coat of the Yorktese is typically long, silky, straight, and fine in texture.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are recommended. The Yorktese may be stubborn and difficult to housebreak. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.
Activity
Yorktese are well suited for apartment living provided they are sufficiently exercised and mentally stimulated. They are relatively active indoors and should have a variety of safe toys to keep them occupied. The Yorktese enjoys securely leashed walks, family play sessions, and off-lead play in a fenced yard.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Morkie / Yorktese puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

what does it mean if a puppy is a "teacup" morkie What does it mean if a puppy is a teacup morkie. I want to adopt the pup but did research and found to stay away from anything that says teacup. why?

These are toy dogs that are bred to create even smaller dogs. They might not literally fit in a teacup, but they would definitely fit in someone’s handbag or pocket. A morkie is a mutt: a cross between a Maltese and a Yorkshire terrier. A morkie normally weighs around six pounds, but these teacup morkies are even smaller with many maxing out at four pounds. It is because UNreputable breeders bred RUNTS to get these small dogs. The puppies only weigh a few ounces. This is not a dog for everyone. If you have children, you should look for a dog that is larger and less fragile. Most toy dogs are too small for children to play with without hurting them, and these teacup morkies are even tinier.

Are Morkie's hypoallergenic

1 Comment

The Maltese and the Yorkshire Terrier are both considered hypoallergenic breeds of dogs. So yes, your Maltese/Yorkie cross will be considered a hypoallergenic dog as well. But please understand that not all hypoallergenic dogs work for every person. Spend some time with the dog or puppy and make sure that you do not have a reaction to the dog/puppy before you bring him/her home.

I waited to do it until my baby was 6 or 8 months because he was so small. But ask your vet and also do what makes you feel comfortable.

Contact your local Positive Reinforcement trainer. He/She can help you work with your dog's behavioral issue. Barking is considered a behavioral issue that can be controlled with counter-conditioning training.

when does a morkie puppy go into heat

Unless you are a reputable breeder or are under the study of one, you shouldn't be breeding. Breeding dogs is very dangerous for the dam, sire and the puppies. Unless your dog is of impeccable breeding, has passed all temperament and health checks and has titles in confirmation and/or has shown he/she is capable of doing what the breed was made for, the dog should be spayed/neutered. Every dog is different, but the average time your puppy will have her fist heat is around 6 months old.

information about morkie What is temperment, size at maturity, barkers?

For you to know if you will like the breed, you must spend time with the breed. The temperament of the dog will depend on the sire and dam's temperament, how much the dog is socialized and how well it is trained. The size is the same, as the size of the puppy will depend on the size of the dam and sire. Barking again, all depends on the training and socialization of the dog.

pregnant morkie She is 52 days pregnant I am just wanting general info on what to expect during the birthing process. Also she is not really showing that much,does that mean maybe only one pup?

Between day 55 - 57, you should have your dog X-rayed by the vet. This way you can see how many puppies she will have. Unless you have a vet on call or are under the study of a reputable and experienced breeder. You need to have your dog C-sectioned. Birthing is an extremely dangerous process if you do not know what you are doing. You are risking the lives of those puppies and your dam if you do not do everything right.
