This hybrid was initially called the Yorktese, however is now more frequently called the Morkie. The Yorktese is also know as the Maltiyork, Malkie, Malki and Yorkiemalt. The Morkie is not a pure-blooded canine. It is a cross in between the Yorkie and the Maltese. The very best method to figure out the personality of a mixed breed is to search for all types in the cross and understand you can get any mix of any of the qualities discovered in either type. Not all of these designer hybrid canines being reproduced are 50% purebred to 50% pure-blooded. It is extremely typical for breeders to reproduce multi-generation crosses.
