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.

Temperament

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.

Exercise

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.

A Morkie on average measures 7 to 9 inches at shoulder in height and weighs between 4 to 7 lbs.

MORKIE


Date: 11/21/2017
Name: Lois (was Sasha 7/23/16)
Breed: Morkie
Client: Colleen Arnold
Loc: Buffalo, NY

We have had Lois for a little over a year now and cannot imagine life without her. Admittedly I was uneasy about buying online and having her shipped. Premier pups made it so easy, called several times to check on her when we first got her and seemed genuinely concerned with her well being. Lois arrived very healthy and it was apparent that she had been taken care of. She has grown to just over 8 pounds and is 100% healthy as she has been from day one. Thank you Premier Pups! Lois sends her love and thanks too!

We are first time dog owners and were very nervous to purchase.. We drove to Premier on a Friday afternoon to "look." We fell in love with Mila (Polly) immediately and brought her home that day. She has been a great addition to our family. She is friendly, curious, and full of energy. We aren't sure that our toes will survive puppyhood, but we love her and all of her antics!! Premier was great to work with. Great, detailed send home instructions and we appreciated the follow up calls/texts. #happy family

Name: Charlie (aka Jackson)
Breed: Morkie
Client: Vlad and Tracy Ferrer
Loc: Ada, MI

We adopted Charlie on 1/16/2017 and it was love at first sight. Charlie arrived safe and sound and on time to the airport with out any problems or delays. The staff kept us informed at all times during his travel. It was a rough night with him crying in the crate no matter what we did. He is starting to get better now after the forth day and is very eager to potty train outside - which we are so happy about! The instructions on his care are clear and concise. We have had great support from Premier Pup staff and they have been very easy to work with! :)

She is so spoiled with love..... she’s everyone’s dream come true..... dances for us all day and all night! She’s my snuggle bear at night.... my husband can never stop playing with her because she’s so fun! She’s super intelligent too! We couldn’t have asked for a better pup! Thank you!

Name: Chloe
Breed: Morkie
Client: Krista
Loc: Cumming, GA

We adopted Chloe (formerly Danielle) in September. She is such a spunky little girl with personality galore. She and our 10 year old Maltese are becoming friends and the kids love to play with her. We were hesitant at first to choose a puppy only with a photo and to ship such a little puppy on a plane, but she is healthy as can be. We couldn't be happier with our decision.

Name: Quinn
Breed: Morkie
Client: Jennifer Seastrand
Loc: springfield, va

My experience with Premier Pups has been nothing short of wonderful. I did a lot of research into breeders and they came out on top for sure, and now I know why. We found Zoey (formerly Quinn) and fell in love right away. I was very nervous about shipping, but not only did they talk it through with me, she arrived safe and sound and snug as a bug. She adjusted quickly and is the picture of health. Her first vet visit went well, and she’s getting along great with our older, less friendly dog. She was obviously in a home before we got her, as she was already good to go with potty training. Meaning, as soon as we take her outside, she knows it’s time to go potty, not that we don’t still have some accidents, given she’s only 10 months old so far. Not only would I recommend Premier Pups to others, and have, I would definitely get another puppy from them in the future should we decide to add to our family. Thanks so much for all the wonderful support.

I was a bit nervous about having a young small pup flying from Ohio to Denver. But I can honestly tell you this was the best experience ever. I felt like I was dealing with a 5 star organization. The info on the flights was on time and perfect. the pick up went great. Premier Pups called and emailed daily so we never missed a step. My local vet said she had never seen such comprehensive paperwork and delivery. WE LOVE YOU and we love are new fur baby!
