What Do I Need to Know Before Getting a Morkie?
Owning a Morkie can be a joy and a responsibility. Before you bring your pup home, there are some important things to know about this breed of dog.
The Morkie is a hybrid breed, meaning it’s a mix between two purebreds: the Maltese and the Yorkshire Terrier. This means they can have traits of both the Maltese and Yorkshire Terrier. Generally, Morkie’s are playful, loyal, and affectionate dogs that make great companions.
Morkie’s tend to be small in size and have moderate energy levels. They require regular grooming such as daily brushing, regular baths, and occasional trips to the groomer. It’s important to keep their nails trimmed, as well as brush their teeth regularly.
Like most dogs, Morkie’s require exercise and mental stimulation. Walks, playtime, and puzzle toys are great ways to provide these things for your pup. Training is also important for all breeds. Socialization from a young age helps ensure that your pup grows up to be a well-mannered and confident dog.
Overall, Morkie’s are happy and loving companions that make great additions to any family! Call Tubb’s Puppies for more information or to start the adoption process today!
