Morkie

PuppySpot kept us up-to-date with information & sent us updated photos and their customer service was awesome! Everything they promised thus far, they have provided. They call af...

Morkie Characteristics

The Morkie is a mixed breed between the Maltese and the Yorkshire Terrier dog breeds. These dogs take on many of the best qualities from each parent and are loveable partners with great personalities. Because they're close to teacup size and require relatively little exercise, Morkies make a great apartment or small space companion.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Determined

Because they're a mixed breed, the Morkie is not as consistently sized as either of its parents. They can stand anywhere from 4-8 inches at the shoulder and can weigh anywhere from 7-13 pounds. Their small size can make them injury-prone if they're in a house with larger animals or small children, so they're best paired with adults or older children who know how to play properly. Often found in white or black, the Morkie has inherited the low shedding  trait from both its parents, though they are not considered hypoallergenic.

 

Morkies are known to be very vocal dogs. This makes them a great candidate as a watchdog, even if they don't have the size to back up their bark. The Morkie breed is prone to some of the same health conditions that the Maltese and Yorkshire Terrier also face. A few things to keep an eye on during regular vet checkups include dental disease, hernias, reverse sneezing, and collapsed trachea. 

 

Morkies can be stubborn, and their energy levels are high. To ensure your space isn't torn up as a result of boredom, make sure your dog gets at least one half-hour walk a day or some light playing around the house. It's important to not overdo it, though, as too much exercise can actually lead to injury with this breed.

How dog-friendly is Arizona?

In general, Arizona is a great place for dogs – with parks, plenty of dog-griendly restaurants, and great access to pet care. The one downside is that the state has a very low percentage of pet-friendy rentals available. This single factor brings their overall score down a bit.


Pawsafe put Arizona in the 46th place for pet-friendliness in their study. They noted the relatively low percentage of pet-friendly rentals at just 18%, which brought the overal score down. 


A similar study from Safewise puts Arizona as a more pet-friendly place, ranking the state at 27th.


Both of these studies consider a wide range of important factors for your beloved pet’s health and happiness – including pet care costs, walkability scores, the number of pet-friendly rentals, and animal welfare laws.

How pet-friendly are Arizona’s cities?

SmartAsset reviewed the 100 largest U.S. cities to grade them for pet-friendliness. 

Tucson

In their study, SmartAsset named Tucson as the most pet-friendly city in the country! This is the second year in a row that the city has received such an honor.


Tucson has the fifth highest number of dog parks, vet offices and dog-friendly restaurants per 10,000 establishments. The city has 254 dog-friendly restaurants, which ranks in the top 20. There are also four dog-friendly shopping centers in the city.

Phoenix

In the same study, Phoenix was ranked as the 18th most pet-friendly city. Another study by WalletHub placed Phoenix 22nd.


There are 172 dog-friendly restaurants in the city and 11 dog-friendly shopping centers. Additionally, the city of Scottsdale tied for the 24th most pet-friendly city. It has 112 dog-friendly restaurants and 16 dog friendly shopping centers.

Scottsdale

WalletHub did a similar study that rated Scottsdale as the most pet-friendly city in the country. The key factor for WalletHub’s ranking is Scottdale’s fantastic pet health and wellness. They also ranked third for outdoor pet-friendliness.

A few more pet-related Arizona facts

In Arizona, 43% residents own a dog, which is above the national average of 40%. According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in the state are Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds, and Golden Retrievers. In the city of Phoenix, these breeds are just as popular, but people also love Pit Bulls.


The state’s total pet ownership percentage is also far above the national average with 69% of Arizona homes owning a pet. Like we said, Arizona loves its pets!

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Arizona

Arizona saved 2,458 more animals in 2020 than in 2019 and 33 of the state’s 66 animal shelters are no-kill shelters. The overall save rate for the state is approximately 86% so they only need a small increase to meet the 90% to become a no-kill state. We hope to see this percentage go up!
