Morkies Puppies for Sale in Florida

The Morkie is an adorable crossbreed of the purebred Maltese and the purebred Yorkshire terrier. These natural lapdogs are quite small, coming in at less than 12 inches tall and less than 13 pounds. In overall appearance and coloring, they usually take after the Yorkie side, but their coats are softer like the Maltese and require regular brushing and monthly grooming to keep the hair silky and tangle-free. The Morkie is considered a nonshedding dog, and many people with allergies can tolerate this breed quite well.

Breed Characteristics

Just like its Maltese and Yorkie parents, the Morkie is an exceptionally friendly and social dog that bonds strongly with its owners. Because of this, the Morkie may not be a good fit for a family where everyone works most of the day, as they need a lot of interaction or they can get anxious. These dogs usually get along quite well with cats and other dogs, although large dogs may need to be monitored to ensure playtime doesn’t get too rough. The Morkie is known for its spunk and intelligence, and these dogs learn tricks easily. However, they do have a stubborn streak and require consistent training and leadership.

If you’re looking for a playful, energetic pup that can also curl up on your lap and enjoy a good nap, look for Morkies at Florida Puppies Online.
