It's difficult to say as a Morkie is not a breed but a mixed breed whose characteristics will vary as a result.
It would be like mixing a Doberman with a Collie and asking if the dog is really Doberman and Collie even though it looks more like one than the other. Who could say?
I would recommend looking further into what purebred dogs are and researching reputable breeders for toy dogs if that is your interest.
Otherwise, accept you are looking at a mixed breed and you will probably find tons of adorable puppies at a shelter for much less.

As SirTeddykins has stated Morkies are not a BREED it is a mix, a Yorkshire Terrier and a Maltese, in my days as a kid, mixed dogs were called MUTTS, today they are called designer dogs,none the less Morkies are cute, but not a "breed". A lot of Morkies such as your picture do look like Yorkshire Terriers.

Purebreds have an expected look. Mixed breeds are wildcards - you'll never know for sure what mixes you have in there and cannot expect any specific exact 'look'.
If you're not looking for a purebred, then please adopt as there is enough abandoned mixed breds at the rescues, rather than supporting backyard breeders.

Being so young, the pup will go through ALOT of changes the first year. You won't know for sure until they're "fully grown".

Yup that's a Morkie. It just takes after the Yorkie side more my Morkie is the same. I'll try to add a puppy pic of my Morkie so you can see.
