The Morkie is a mixed breed dog–a cross between the Maltese and the Yorkshire Terrier dog breeds. Small, energetic, and super silly, these pups inherited some of the best qualities from both their parents. This crossbreed is usually referred to as the Morkie, but it is sometimes called the Morkshire Terrier. Despite their unfortunate status as a designer breed, you can find these mixed-breed dogs at shelters and breed-specific rescues. Remember, when you are looking for pets, adopt! Don’t shop! These adorable dogs make excellent apartment pets for urban dwellers, and they tend to thrive in small or single-person households. Morkies can also be on the yappier side, like their parents. If you want an energetic, loving dog who will always want your attention, the Morkie might be the right dog for you.Morkie Mixed Dog Breed Pictures Morkie Mixed Dog Breed Pictures, Characteristics, & FactsInitiate Gallery Additional articles you will be interested in:AdoptionChoosing The Best Dog NameBringing Home Your DogTraining To Walk On-LeashHousetraining PuppiesFeeding A PuppyIndoor Activities For DogsTeaching Your Dog TricksHow To Take Pictures Of Your Dog
