The Morkie (also known as Yorktese or Malkie ) is a designer dog, or a specific selection derived from the voluntary coupling of a well studied defined breed, in this case, the Maltese and Yorkshire Terrier breed. Designer breeds are sometimes made in order to reduce inherited diseases as well as achieve totally new hybrid.
As a hybrid, the Morkie may exhibit a temperament like either parent, or a combined type. Yorkshire Terriers are from the Toy Group but are terriers nonetheless. They are determined, investigative and energetic. Maltese are usually more gentle mannered. They are known for being lively, playful and fearless despite their small size.
Morkie dogs are expected to live 15 or more years.
