When a morkie puppy reaches the age of one year, it is considered fully developed. With proper care, they should live for 12 to 15 years. They are also thought to be affectionate, devoted, and submissive, and require very little care.
Compared to most dogs, mutts do need more attention. They are great for smaller homes or flats because they require less exercise than regular dogs due to their smaller size. Females may be a little smaller than males, who can weigh anything from 4 to 15 pounds. The Yorkshire and Maltese dogs that make up the hybrid breed known as the morkie are whence the morkie gets its name.
