Teacup Morkie puppies are a designer dog breed, or crossbreed. They are created by breeding a Maltese with a Yorkshire Terrier. The Morkie is a member of the Toy Group, which is a breed group that includes the smallest types of dogs.
The teacup Morkie is a loving and affectionate breed. Morkies generally weigh just 4 to 8 pounds and stand no taller than 8 inches at the shoulder. They are intelligent but can be a bit stubborn, sometimes making training a challenge. Because of their small size, Morkies fit well into nearly any environment, including small apartments. The average Morkie is a relatively healthy breed that lives for 10 to 13 years.
