Tiniest Morkies In the United States!
Due to the mating of two extraordinary breeds, Yorkshire terrier with
Bichon Maltese, the morkie, also known as yorktese (a wonderful teacup
pup) was born. Having the best qualities of a maltese combined with the
best qualities of a yorkie, the morkie is a “hybrid” dog worshiped for
being hypoallergenic and (as many claim) healthier than purebred
canines. According to some breeders, the solid health of a morkie is due

the alertness, protective and vigilant temperament of a maltese, the
morkie is a perfect watch dog that would immediately sound alert any
intruder he might find suspicious but at the same time he would also
give a friendly welcome once he sees his owner doing so as well. Many
describe the morkie as having the tenacity and courage of a yorkie and
the mellowness and gentleness of a maltese. Morkies are fearless,
energetic little dogs that take on the temperament of both yorkies and
maltese. Known as joyful, social, friendly and with a pleasant and sweet

The teacup morkie is a
loving, gentle, loyal and attached to family companion that takes great
pleasure in entertaining his family. Being a smart and obedient pup,

tricks will also prove efficient since he knows tricks will help him
get a lot of attention when performing. Being playful and joyful a
morkie will be up and ready for play anytime but he will also easily
calm down when asked to. The morkies love to go for walks and even join
their owners in jogging routines, but at the same time the morkies are
never demanding of hard exercise.
The morkie is famous for not
shedding, a great quality inherited from both his parents (both the
yorkie as well as the maltese are known as non shedding breeds).
