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.
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.

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!
The customer service team was there for me every step of the way! They ensured to keep me informed while he was being transported to Tampa and took care of his flight reservations. After he arrived they checked on him every day! The team provided and info packet and nutritional supplements to ensure he was well nourished his first couple weeks at home. I got text messages making sure he was eating and adjusting well. He was in perfect health when I brought him to the veterinarian and they were impressed with the vaccination paperwork I received from Premier Pups. I was honestly nervous to buy a pet so far away, but Dexter is awesome! He's so smart and well behaved. I couldn't have asked for a better puppy- he's almost completely house trained at 4 months old and listens so well! The breeder Premier Pups works with must be great! Thanks for an awesome experience and an awesome puppy, he's the best! <3
My family and I are so blessed we found/bought Noah. He's a real sweet, loving, playful, kid friendly puppy. I had the best experience with premier pup. Noah has adjusted well at our home. Thank you for giving me Noah, we all just love him, So glad he's apart of my family.
We want to thank Matt, Michelle and Kasey ( with a K ) for our amazing puppy. All went above and beyond and we are over the top happy. This is our second puppy in 6 months. I almost can't resist coming back for another! My family and friends highly recommend Premiere Pups. Its the only place to pourchse your puppy. Thank you all again.
Our family is just over-the-moon with this pint size little guy. He has such an amazingly unique personality. We could not be any happier. Thank you premier pups!
He is my first puppy ever owned in our household since my parents never wanted a pet until I was able to afford and take care of it myself. I am not a college graduate and have a big kid job so the first thing I did was get my darling best friend Bean. He is now 6 months old and is full grown according to the vetrinarian and doing fabulous. He was timid at first and still somewhat is to new people when outside of the home but is absolutely loving to anyone who visits our home and to our family. He is extremely playful and loves all of his toys especially his little dog blanket that came home with him. I am extremely thrilled with my decision to get a pet for my first real purchase and premier pups couldn't have been more helpful with my questions and supply gathering prior to bringing him home. I know that when I am ready in the future to get him a friend I will definitely be going back to Premier Pups.
We got our Morkie Benji(previously named Ralph) He is so playful and spoiled he's already gone to vacations with us and is always happy. He is so tiny we can tKe him pretty much everywhere.Everytime someone sees my 3 year ild holding him they think he is a stuffed toy. He is so perfect !
This was my first purchase from Premier Pups and I am so happy. Nike is adjusting well and I appreciate premier pups calling and checking on Nike.
Couldn't have been more pleased with your professional services and our precious pup! She adjusted quickly and beautifully! ??
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.
