    A Morkie is a hybrid dog or designer dog breed, half Yorkshire terrier and half Maltese. Hybrid dogs are blended from purebred dogs in attempts to capture the ideal characteristics from each breed and eliminate the undesirable traits. The size and general appearance of a Morkie puppy is based off the history of the purebred dogs that parented the pup.

    Size

    Both Yorkie and Maltese breeds are are small dogs, so an adult Morkie will also be small. She may weigh between 3 to 10 pounds, and will measure about 8 to 12 inches tall.

    Appearance

    A Morkie will have long hair and will require regular trips to the groomer for haircuts, but she will not shed. The hair color may be a blend of white, black, silver and tan.
