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 Vermont?
Vermont is one of the most pet-friendly states in the country! The state has strong animal welfare laws, excellent outdoor activities, and great access to pet services.
We evaluated two separate studies comparing all 50 states by several of these factors. They surveyed animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, dog parks, hiking trails, and veterinarian services.
The first study, by animal advocacy group Pawsafe, ranked Vermont at a stellar 6th in the nation. The second, from Safewise, gave Vermont 7th. The state scored very well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
Vermont is clearly a great place for dog people!
