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.

How big does a Morkie typically weigh when fully grown? Will most Morkies have the long silky fur?

1 Comment

Anonymous

The Maltese averages in at 6 1/2 - 9 pounds, while the Yorkshire Terrier averages in at 4 - 6 pounds. So it all depends on if the puppy takes after the Maltese or the Yorkshire Terrier for weight. But it could be anywhere from 4 - 9 lbs obviously. As for fur, that again will also depend on if the dog takes after the Maltese or the Yorkie. If you are dead set on the long silky fur, then I wouldn't count on the cross, as most has the shorter/curly fur. I would get a pure-bred Yorkshire Terrier if I were you.

If the dog was socialized with children, then the dog should be fine around the four year old. But all interactions between the child and dog should be supervised at all times. The Maltese/Yorkshire Terrier cross is a delicate dog and can easily be injured by a rough child or rough play.

Can a Morkie be trained for a service dog?

1 Comment

Anonymous

A Service Dog by definition is a dog that is trained to be able to do several tasks that alleviate the hardships the dogs owner has because of a disability. And so by definition, any dog could be trained as a Service Dog, but in reality not every dog actually can. Since a Service Dog must be able to be in public with his/her owner, the dog must have extensive training and socialization. Some breeds whom are wary of strangers, or have aggressive tendencies are normally not good picks for Service Dogs. However, with the Maltese/Yorkshire Terrier cross is known for its fun-loving nature and being hypoallergenic; making the dog able to be a Service Dog as long as the dog is physically able to do what it's owner needs he/she to do as a Service Dog. Please note that Therapy Dogs and Service Dogs are very different in what they do for their owners/other people.

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?

1 Comment

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.

when does a morkie puppy go into heat

1 Comment

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.

1 Comment

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.

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.

I got my morkie when he was only 6 weeks old and began training right away.. We never did the whole pee pee pad thing because we didn't want to teach him it was ok to go "in the house" we just pretty much took him outside every hour or two rewarding him for every pee and poop outside with a treat. He learned very quick and also was only allowed to hang out in certain areas of our home to avoid accidents on carpet. When he did have an accident we quickly stopped him and brought him outside... He caught on little by little and began to go to the door and bark letting us know he had to go... Hope that helped

You have to be patient and consistent. i have a Morkie, that I got in September. I have a Border Collie also that helps me. If they begin to pee inside, make a loud noise and yell stop. Then pick her up and take her right out to where you want her to go. You can even place the paper towel or whatever you use to clean the pee inside and place it outside where you want her to go, then wait and give commands to pee. It may take a lil while. I was outside one night literally for 45 minutes waiting, then praised the hell out of her like it was a game. Hope it helped. She will have accidents, just be consistant.

Contacting your vet in this situation is key. The hair could grow longer, or it could stay short. There are incidences in which the Yorkie Dam is a 'Brewer's Yorkie', which means that the hair will be short and kind of curly.

The temperament of the puppy will be determined by the temperament of the dam and sire. It is very rare for a puppy to be actually mean. However, a puppy could be play fighting and you interpreted it as being mean. Contact your local Positive Reinforcement trainer for more information and training classes.

Unless you are under the study of a reputable and experienced breeder, you should NOT be birthing the puppies by yourself. You NEED someone experienced there, such as a breeder or vet. Please have your dog C-sectioned if you can not have a vet present throughout the birth. Birthing puppies is very dangerous and you are risking the lives of those puppies and your dam if you do not do everything right. Yes! Keep the father away!

I would ask the price depending on how much you paid for her. How old was she when you got her? If she was a puppy, I would sell her for a little less. And also, do go on how good of dog she is. I would say $350-$500.

Try training your morkie with a bell. You can buy a bell on a string that hangs on your handle from your local pet store, or you could make one yourself. Everytime you take her outside to go potty take her paw and hit the bell so she learns that sound means she gets to go outside. It took our Morkie 2 weeks to become completely potty trained with it.
