You’ve probably met a Yorkie.
The Yorkshire Terrier is a common dog breed that is hugely popular as companion pets throughout the world.
When Yorkies are crossed with the easy-going Maltese dog, the result is a friendly and loving hybrid pup called a Morkie.
Morkies are often dubbed a designer dog breed given their increasing popularity over the past 20 years or so.
However, there are lots of Morkies who need to find a forever home after being taken in by rescue shelters.
If you’re thinking about getting a Morkie, one of the best ways to learn more about a specific type of dog is following examples of the breed on Instagram.
In this article, we’re going to meet 20 Morkies to follow on Instagram.
