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.
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 Kansas?
Kansas is a great state for dog lovers. The “sunflower state” compares well to other states for things like animal welfare regulations, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.
We looked at two important studies ranking each of the states by these pet-friendly factors. The first study was conducted by Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group. In their study, Kansas is ranked as the 11th most pet-friendly state. The state scored very well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
The other study was conducted by Safewise, a consumer review site for safety across the country. In their study, Kansas is ranked as the 12th most pet-friendly state in the country!
Combining these two studies places Kansas towards the front of the pack of pet-friendly states.

Wichita was ranked 76th overall, which could be better. Wallethub scored the city 20th in pet budget, 82nd in pet health and wellness, and 98th in outdoor pet-friendliness.
A Trust for Public Land (TPL) study reviews the nation’s 100 largest cities to see which has the most dog parks per capita. Wichita scored in the 66th position, with 0.7 parks per 100,000 people.
