Bobby Visits for Wet Nose Wednesday [Sponsored]

This is Bobby, a 1 and 1/2-year old Morkie!  What? A Morkie? Yes, a Morkie, or, better known as a Yorkshire Terrier / Maltese Hybrid Dog. This hybrid was originally called the Yorktese, but is now more commonly called the Morkie. The Morkie is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Yorkie and the Maltese. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
