The Morkie in this video is delighting his family with laughter. His name is Sprout. At this filming he is 3 months old. See how playful he is? This trait is typical of Morkie. Morkie is a crossbreed between a Maltese and a Yorkie. They usually weigh between 4 to 8 pounds, according to Pet Guide.
Characteristics of a Morkie (Maltese and Yorkie)
Because of their tiny size, it is best to match them with families with older children who already know how to approach and handle a dog. He is too fragile to be around much younger children, who may accidentally drop him or step on his paw when they don’t see him standing behind them. Or even hugging them too tightly or rolling onto them in bed. And he is also too small to be around large dogs. They may unintentionally injure the little guy.
The Morkie is affectionate and loves his family.
He attaches himself to his family very quickly. And he does not like to be left alone for a long time. He is actually ideal for families with someone who stays at home. Or maybe for someone who can take him to the office.
If he’s left alone, he can bark and bark until someone comes home. Even though his size makes him a good pet for an apartment, your neighbors would not appreciate his barking. You can hear on this video how loud Sprout’s bark is. Morkie needs a couple of short walks. Maybe one in the morning and one in the evening, along with play time They can chase after a ball for quite a while. Make sure your family’s lifestyle is okay with a small puppy who loves to run after a ball indoor. Training your Morkie takes patience. Just make it a fun experience for him. And praise praise praise. And yummy treats, of course. You can read more about the temperament of Morkies here.
