As you look through the photos on
different breeders websites, one might notice that the look of the
Morkie can vary widely, based on the quality of their
parents. The Morkie puppies shown below are typical of what
you will find with one of my Sunrise puppies. They are the
product of careful, thoughtful breeding. I am committed to
breeding a healthy, sweet tempered Morkie who is also cute!
My puppies are from Maltese and Yorkies purebreds who are AKC
registered, have many Champions in their pedigrees, and who are also
DNA certified through the American Kennel Club. The quality of
our Yorkie and Maltese parents here at Sunrise shines through in
their Morkie puppies.
will a Sunrise Morkie puppy look like as an adult Morkie?
the Morkie puppies become an adult, their appearance does not
change much. They will have a more "mature" look to
their faces, but will retain much of their puppy color
pattern. Their hair will continue to grow (since they are
non-shedding) and will need to be trimmed in a puppy cut if you like
the shorter haired look.
black and tan Morkie puppies (Yorkie markings) will usually
lighten on their faces as they get older. A puppy with lots of
black markings on it's face will usually still have some black/gray
tones in some of it's face hair as it gets older. A puppy with
more cream than black on it's face will also get a couple shades
lighter on it's face and have very little, if any, black/gray
markings left on it's face as an adult. However, the black and tan
Morkie usually stay dark over their backs. On the rare
ocassion that a black and tan Morkie changes coloring, they will
have streaks of silver through their black hair, or might turn
mostly silver over their backs.
butterscotch colored Morkie puppies will also lighten a couple
shades as they get older. They tend to loose most of the
gray/black streaking in their face hair as they mature, but can keep
some of the darker streaks over their back. It is common for
the butterscotch Morkies to have a black mask over their muzzle when
they are babies. By the time they reach 10 to 14 weeks of age,
very little of the solid black color will be left on their faces, as
this will change to tan with streaks of silver/gray in it.
the adult look of a Morkie can be harder to predict that the appearance
of a purebred Yorkie or Maltese, they always end up looking cute as
a button:) Look on my customer comments page to see a few
adult photos of my Morkies.
Morkies all have a nice thick, very soft coat as an adult. The
coat style can differ slightly from puppy to puppy. Some
puppies will have an extremely thick, full coat like a Maltese (and
will usually have a little fluffier appearance), while others will
have a finer, not as full type of a coat (which will look a little flatter
appearing and will be less hair to care for). However the
differences in their coats texture/type are minor differences, not

Morkies are not for sale, as they are already in the homes of their
forever families. These photos are typical of my
