A morkie puppy is normally bred from purebred Maltese and Yorkshire terrier parents. Mixed breeds are healthier and less at risk for the genetic diseases purebreds are predisposed to inheriting. Finding a reputable breeder is always an important first step when seeking out a new puppy.
A morkie puppy is a small dog, growing to 12 or 15 pounds over the course of its life. The puppy is usually born with a black, brown, tan or white coat of long, soft hair. The puppy's ears can either be floppy or pointed.
A morkie puppy is a great apartment pet. It requires little exercise, although It needs a small amount on a daily basis. Morkie puppies can be left alone for short periods of time as long as toys are available to occupy them. It's best to start training puppies as soon as possible, as they become stubborn if left untrained. Morkie puppies learn quickly and are known for obedience. They are a playful, active and social pet.
A morkie needs to be brushed and groomed regularly. They don't shed, so their hair will easily mat if not properly taken care of. Their teeth require brushing a couple times a week to maintain proper oral hygiene.
