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.

MORKIE

Name: Ralph - now Milo
Breed: Morkie
Client: Cynthia
Loc: NJ

We searched everywhere for our “perfect” dog; local shops and breeders in NJ, NY, PA, FL, but we kept coming back to your site. I spoke to several members of your staff and emailed multiple times to assure we would not be scammed. After following your site and puppies for over We saw Milo (listed as Ralph) and knew he was the one! We were skeptical about putting such a smal puppy in a long flight, but your staff hand-held us through the process and put us at ease. We received many follow up calls once he arrived to ensure he was transitioning well. We made several calls out to you with questions and concerns, all which were responsed to immediately. Two months later, Milo is a happy, active and healthy dog who completed our family. We could not be happier with him, or our experience with premier pups. Thank you!!

We adopted two puppies from you guys, about 11 month apart in age. They are both the sweetest dogs ever. So smart and so well behaved. They both have easily learned tons of tricks, and are very social. My boyfriend points out how lucky we got with both of them everyday. Thank you for our beautiful fur babies ??

Breed: Morkie
Client: Mikaela Pascal
Loc: Los Angeles, CA

We love our Goose!! (Formerly Doug) Goose has so much personality and loves to play. He doesn’t “yap” much like other small dogs and has picked up on good habits very quickly which has made basic training pretty smooth! Premier Pups had such an amazing process and service, made everything so easy and I appreciate all the preparation and after pick up check ins they did. This was my first puppy and I had done lots of research on my own, but premiere pups provided me with so much step by step information that it took away so much stress of being a “bad” first time dog mom! Our puppy is the sweetest addition to our family and I will use premiere pups in the future.

Breed: Morkie
Client: Maria Merchan
Loc: Weston, FL

I bought Balú about three weeks ago and it has been amazing. I’m extremely grateful to Premier Pups for their service and the amazing puppy they gave me. From the moment I bought him to picking him up in the airport to now that he is settled at home, it has just been an amazing experience!

Name: Charleigh (was Danielle)
Breed: Morkie
Client: Kellay Thompson
Loc: Huber Heights, Oh

I am so thankful that we came across Premier Pups. We have been blessed with our new addition to our family. We enjoy her so much. The interaction with everyone at Premier Pups was absolutely amazing. I was anxious at first never having a pup as small as Charleigh but after talking with them I felt a huge weight lifted off of me and confident. She has been a true blessing to our family. Oh did I mention how well she adapted to her new home? She came home on Dec 23rd at 1 lb 13 oz and is now just over 3 lbs. Premier Pups will always be a 5* in my books!! Can’t thank everyone there enough ??

Name: Benji (Formally known as Damon)
Breed: Morkie
Client: Nikia & Daryl Person
Loc: Pendleton, IN.

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 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
