    A few months ago my daughter (almost grown) fell in love with the little faces of the morkie. We found our little morkie about 60 miles from the town we live in, we made several trips to see her until she was old enough to come home and she did pay a bit for her. I was a little concerned after reading that they are “muts” but my daughter was 100% sure she wanted one. She was bread by a breeder…but not all are the same, our puppy’s parents were spoiled dogs running around in a home and very loved. Just do your homework and meet the breeder first. We are very happy with our morkie, she has a wonderful, playful personality and is sooo cute, sweet and cuddly! I would not advise anyone with small kids to get one however due to the size. Also be prepared to get creative feeding your morkie they have to think each meal is special. Your morkie will need LOTS of baths, the hair on these dogs are like people hair. Our little girl potty trained easily with lots of praise. I am glad I let my daughter get a morkie, she has given our home lots of happiness.

    Morkies are wonderful dogs, although it says that they are not ideal for children, my morkie is wonderful with children and all people and animals , the key is exposing your dog to a lot if people when they are puppy’s. But temperament of the dog also plays a key , discipline the dog if the nip at children . Don’t let them develop small dog syndrome lol , As for potty training the key is persistence , I as many dog lovers my morkie sleeps in my bed , he has slept In my bed since I got him , I got up every 2 hours to let him out , he had few accidents in my house at all .now my dog sleeps through the night most of the time , he has no accidents in house. My morkie is now 1 and he is the best dog ever.
    Things to remember when getting a dog
    Puppy’s are hard work , they are just like having a child
    And if you have carpets buy a carpet cleaner they are good for everything , pee stains, throw up, mud prints
    Morkies need to be groomed a lot , my dog loves outside and needs a bath weekly(at home) best shampoo is something with moisture in it they get dry skin
    And last but not least you need to remember they need attention if you’re gone all day they are most likely going to keep you up at night
