Full Answer

Morkies do require a larger amount of attention than most dogs. However, because of their small size, they do not need as much exercise as standard dogs, which makes them ideal for smaller houses or apartments. Males can grow to be between 4 and 15 pounds, whereas females may be bit smaller. The morkie is a hybrid breed made up of the Yorkshire and Maltese, from which the morkie derives its name.
