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 Oregon?
Super dog-friendly! Oregon is regularly ranked in the top five best states for pets. Two of the best review sites for pet safety and comfort are Pawsafe and Safewise. Both give Oregon excellent marks.
Pawsafe’s study examined each state according to some pet-friendly metrics. They evaluated things like animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations and services, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.
In the Pawsafe study, Oregon ranked as the 4th most pet-friendly state in the country. The state also scored well for its animal welfare laws, which related to animal abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
In their own separate study, Safewise also ranked Oregon as the 4th most pet-friendly state, for many of the same factors. Combining these two studies puts Oregon at the front of the pack of pet-friendly states!
