Yorktese dog breed information
The Yorktese, also called a Malkie or a Morkie is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Yorkshire Terrier 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. This hybrid cross is recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club as the Malkie. 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.
