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.

Does your Morkie / Yorktese bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Morkie / Yorktese puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

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

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 have the shorter/curly fur. I would get a purebred Yorkshire Terrier if I were you.

Are Morkies good with kids? We have a 4 year old girl who is good with dogs.

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 Morkie / Yorktese is a delicate dog and can easily be injured by a rough child or rough play.

Can a Morkie be trained as a service dog?

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, 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? I want to adopt the puppy 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.
