I picked up Danny Wednesday Oct. 12, 2016 He is absolutely beautiful, healthy , friendly couldn't ask for a better puppy. would certainly recommend this place for anyone who loves dogs.
We love our little Ethan to bits. What an adorable little man. Matt was excellent with helping us and with the transportation of our pup! Thanks again!
We were looking for a playmate for our 2YR old Maltipoo , because we had recently loss two of our other dogs. My sister came across Benji (aka:Damon) on the site and thought he would be a good fit for us. After seeing his cute little face there was no question that my husband and I wanted to bring him home. We've only had Benji a month, but it seems like he's been here forever. He is getting along fine with his two big brothers and all is well. I would definitely recommend premier pups to anyone who is interested in finding a furry friend. The staff stayed in contact with us the first two weeks after we brought Benji home to make sure he was doing ok. We truly appreciated that they were interested in his well being.
We love our sweet Sophia! She is growing and has been such a joy in our lives! We are so grateful to Premier Pups for working closely with us from a distance to find her, Face Time with her, and finally spending he afternoon playing with her on their lawn before flying home. The PP team, especially Ryan, were so helpful with detailed instructions, follow up calls and emails, just to be sure she was doing ok. We have recommended PP to over 10 people in the last month, a couple already have their new pups! Thank you and love - Raquel, Brett, and Sophia

We truly are enjoying our new puppy from your facility. Chloee is such a great addition to our family. She is so loving, and so smart. We couldn’t ask for a better pup to be a part of our family. She’s been using her pee pads since 24 hours after arriving to our house, she is so fun and has such great character, so full of love and my kids love to hold her and watch her. She loves to snuggle up with us. Our Great Pyrenees even loves Chloee to the moon and back. She is absolutely perfect. Can’t thank you all enough.

A crossbreed between the Maltese and the Yorkshire Terrier, the Morkie, also affectionately known as the Yorktese or Morkshire Terrier was first bred in the 1990’s here in the United States as a designer puppy. Since then it has gained considerable popularity for its perfect combination of intelligence and beauty. While, these dogs make for sweet, loyal and loveable pets, they can often become quite bullheaded and territorial if not properly trained early on. Prior experience with a smaller breed is recommended.
Appearance and Grooming
Though the coats tend to be soft, rather long and hypoallergenic with colors typically ranging from solid white to black and tan and every color and combination in between, it is difficult to predict each litter. The unpredictable diversity is what makes these pooches so desirable. Regardless of its coat, this crossbreed needs to be brushed several times a week to keep the coat from matting or tangling. In addition to routine brushing, regular bathing is important to keep their coat healthy and lush.
Despite their tiny size this breed makes for a spirited and intelligent pet. Its inherited sense of fearlessness and energy from its Maltese parent shines through as these dogs are easily excitable and happy to greet anybody they meet. Underneath all of that energy and sometimes mischief these dogs are true lap dogs with a truly sweet and loving nature.
Family and Companionship
It is an obedient and loyal pup and its friendly personality helps it to make fast connections. It doesn’t like to be alone and suffers when it’s not appreciated and loved. It loves to play or curl up on the couch for a nap and requires frequent human companionship. Its loyalty and devotion tends to make this devoted dog very protective of its owner and family. As an adaptable and easy going pooch and while their size makes them ideal pets for apartment dwellers, they can be a problem for your neighbors as they love to bark. When left alone, this little yapper will bark until someone comes home to be with him, which doesn’t bode well for good relationships with close neighbors. This loveable ball of fluff is perfect for an owner who can take them wherever they go.
This breed doesn’t require too much exercise. A couple of brisk walks throughout the day and some active play time will provide the exercise your puppy needs to stay healthy and fit. Morkies should never be left off leash to or unattended during outside play unless they are in a securely fenced in area. If you live in an area where birds of prey are known to roam, you must pay particular attention not to leave your pooch unattended.
Training and Socialization
It has the Yorkshire’s intelligence and therefore is easily trainable, however it can be a little bit stubborn which may require a gentle, firm and patient trainer. It is imperative for it to be properly trained at a young age. These pint size puppies have strong personality traits and think they are much larger than they actually are and as such may try to dominate their owner and smaller animals.
