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 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!
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.
I got Bella( aka Bobbie) in July and I'm obsessed with her! She is so playful and loving. Thank you premier pup for making this happen. My boys love her so much. Thanks again
The Santos family experience with Kaya has been such a positive experience for the 8 of us the moment we picked her up from the airport. We didn't have to wait long for her arrival. Questions regarding her arrival prior to her arrival were answered promptly. Instructions were very detailed in our e-mail. After four months since Kaya's arrival, we continue to get calls with any questions and concerns that we may have with Premierpups which I think is awesome. We're really considering on adding another addition to the family.
Tomorrow 11/11/19 our baby girl Baila turns one! She has been a absolute joy in my life... almost another child! Her demeanor is amazing! Baila goes to work with me in a office setting everyday with no issues. Everybody loves her! I’m so thankful for premier pups, it’s the best decision I could have ever made. We love are little girl more now then words could say!
My daughter wanted to get a cat but I was looking around and found yorkies and then we found premier pups and then I found morkies and thought they were adorable
We picked up Toffee on June 26 and was surprised to see how happy and how easily she adjusted to our family. Over the next few days she became very lethargic and being only one and a half pounds I immediately became concerned. I called Premier Pups and got in contact with Mike Schoeff. Mike patiently stayed in contact with me via phone and text for the next several days advising me until she recuperated. My family and I were devastated thinking she would not make it through this ordeal. I am very thankful and surprised at all the attention and time that Mike put into helping us. We definitely would recommend Premier Pups. Thank You.
We love our new Morkie Teacup Furr Baby she's blessed our family with her personality. She loves to cuddle play and isn't a barker. We have had such a great experience with premier pup from Ohio! Thank you Premier and Mike for calling Daily to check up on our Tink! Nita in Illinois
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 ??
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.
