As you look through the photos on
different breeders websites, one might notice that the look of the
Yorktese can vary widely, based on the quality of their
parents. The Yorktese 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 Yorktese 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 Yorktese puppies.
will a Sunrise Yorktese puppy look like as an adult?
the Yorktese puppies becomes 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 Yorktese 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
Yorktese usually stay dark over their backs. On the rare occasion
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 Yorktese 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 Yorktese 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 Yorktese 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 Yorktese.
My Yorktese 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 major
