Morkie Poo

Morkie Poo Puppies Dog Breed Information

The Morkie-Poo is the offspring of a Morkie and a Poodle. While mixed-breed dogs can display a variety of characteristics inherited from their parents, Morkie-Poos typically exhibit traits of small size, high energy, and a playful demeanor, showing a strong affinity for spending time with their preferred human companions.

A Morkie-Poo craves human attention and thrives on being the focus, especially for their favorite person. They’re affectionate, enjoy cuddling, and often stay close to their owner at home. While they can be reliant, they’re great companions for those seeking constant company.

Though they prefer undivided attention, Morkie-Poos generally get along well with kids, other dogs, and pets when properly introduced. However, without enough socialization, they may become possessive and overly protective of their preferred human.

Due to their small size, they’re prone to injury around young children still learning to handle pets, so they’re better suited to single owners or families with older kids who know how to interact safely.
Initially cautious with strangers, Morkie-Poos quickly warms up with proper socialization. They may bark, especially if they are not trained otherwise, but early training can prevent excessive barking.

The Morkie-Poo is a breed that can adapt to various homes, but they require attention, affection, mental stimulation, and exercise to stay happy. Due to their small size and short snout, they are sensitive to temperature extremes, necessitating appropriate winter gear. These dogs don’t cope well with being alone for long periods and may develop separation anxiety if not trained early. They also tend to chase after things, so it’s safest to keep them leashed or in secure areas outdoors.

Just like any other dog breed, Morkie-Poos can sometimes have health issues. Some common ones include eye problems, low blood sugar, cloudy eyes, and a collapsing windpipe. Good breeders check their dogs to avoid passing these problems on to puppies. It’s important to ask about the health history of both parents.

Because Morkie-Poos are small, they’re more likely to have tooth problems as they get older, like gum disease and tooth decay. But if you take care of their teeth at home and visit the vet regularly, you can help keep their teeth and gums healthy.

While Morkie-Poos are smart and learn fast, they can also be stubborn, even though they want to make their owners happy. At times, they might use their adorable looks to test limits and get their way.

They can be suitable for new dog owners if training is steady and emphasizes praise and rewards. Puppy training classes are helpful, even if not essential, as they provide chances for socializing puppies and offer various benefits.

A Morkie-Poo usually has a coat that doesn’t shed much and can have different colors and textures, depending on their parents. Brush them every day to prevent tangles and mats, and take them to the groomer every 4-6 weeks to keep their coat healthy.

You’ll need to handle nail trimming, ear cleaning, and dental care at home. Trim their nails once or twice a month and check their ears regularly for cleanliness and signs of problems. Since they’re prone to dental issues as they get older, brush their teeth daily or use an enzyme toothpaste to keep their teeth healthy.

While they may exhibit bursts of energy and enthusiasm during play, Morkie-Poos are small dogs that fatigue relatively quickly. Consequently, they typically maintain a low to moderate activity level. Daily walks and some playtime generally suffice for their exercise needs. However, given their fondness for companionship, they may willingly engage in more activity if encouraged, although caution should be exercised to prevent overexertion. It’s advisable to monitor their energy levels during activities and be ready to provide assistance if they become tired.

An adult Morkie-Poo typically measures 6 to 10 inches in height and weighs between 4 to 12 pounds.

On average, a Morkie-Poo has a lifespan of about 10 to 13 years.
