Special Nurturing Notice

Puppies less than 2 lbs require the special care and attention the first 2 weeks in their new home. They need to eat every 2-3 hours, starting with their arrival.

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.

Loc: Ocean Gate, NJ

My husband and I have been wanting a new puppy for a while now (we have two little 5 lb Yorkies). We were at a pet supplies place by our house and saw this guy holding this tiny adorable puppy and decided to ask him where he got him. He told us all about Premier Pups and how great you were! So we went on the website and i automatically fell in love with "Tara" . My husband told me to find another option just in case and we also fell in love with "hope" a little teacup Maltese. But as much as i loved Hope i couldn't stop thinking about Tara! so we got Tara and when we picked her up from the airport on 3/2/2017 she was this adorable precious pup!! We are so in love with her and so happy with our choice! she is such a loving spunky puppy and our family is all in love with her! She came in the cutest carrier and had everything we needed! Premier pups were so great through this whole process and we are just so happy !! We will be getting any future pups from you from now on! our extended families are now wanting one so i'm sure you'll be getting their business soon! :) We also already took her to our local vet and she is completely healthy (they were also in love with her) THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!

We received Baila aka Elsa on 1/13/19. Baila has become the joy of my life and the ultimate entertainment at my job. Everybody around her just can’t get enough. The joke around my office is that she the company pup. The whole process was flawless and I couldn’t be happier with premier pups. Their staff is informative and amazing, they will help you with anything no questions asked! If I ever decide to add another pup to our family I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Thank you premier pups, I didn’t know I could be this in love!

Breed: Morkie
Client: Gloria “Rios-Lewis”
Loc: Miami Florida

The first puppy we had we had to give back due to some situation changes. So I promised my daughter I would get her a new puppy just as soon as we were settled in new city. Bought and daughter picked out herself on website our 11 month old now coco. She was only 10 weeks when we got her. I never knew you could love a dog so much. She’s smart and feisty and cuddly. The process of ordering her and receiving her was so smooth and something we will never forget. Thank you! Can’t imagine our home without her now. It’s complete.

We adopted Christian, now named Teddy at the end of February. We were a bit nervous because we live in Arizona so Teddy had to fly to meet us. He arrived safe and happy. Everything was perfect. This was such an easy process and we couldn’t ask for a happier puppy. He has such a great personality and is so much fun. My husband and I were in love with him the moment we picked him up. Thank you Premier Pups for everything!

Name: Kenzie (McKenzie)
Breed: Morkie
Client: Gary DeBate
Loc: Ponchatoula, Louisiana

It’s been about 6 weeks since Kenzie has been home with us. It took her almost 15 minutes to get start running around after we got home from the airport! She is just a ball of energy and love! She is a little bit stubborn at times, but is learning pretty quick. I don’t think we could’ve found a more cute or healthy puppy.

We recently purchased our new fur baby Saint (Homer) in August after doing our research and reviews and we could not have been more satisfied with our addition. They provided all that was needed for a safe travel and all the meds required to ensure our baby was as healthy as possible. If your follow the directions and ensure you take your baby to your local vet to provide the full physical and stamp of approval, you will be overwhelmed with joy. It’s worth the investment if your ready for your new fur baby.
