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 picked up Banjo (formerly Eric) on Election Day 2020. Our girls had no idea what we had gone to Ohio to do and they cried tears of joy when we surprised them. He has brought so much joy to our home and we love him so much! Premier Pups was wonderful, working with us to set up his pickup and with checking in with us for a week after his arrival home. We have already recommended PP to others! Thanks so much for helping us make special memories with our family.
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.
I have had Noah for a week today and can't stop staring at him. He is the most adorable pup ever!!!! I was extremely nervous about flying a pet. But, when he came in he was fine! I didn't realize that it is actually a cargo facility that he was going to be brought to versus actually going to the airport to pick him up. But, it worked out fine. He has only had 2 accidents and is a good eater. I don't know that the name should be Premierpups.com, adorablepups.com fits better. The pups are pretty pricy, but well worth it. The staff are very helpful and willing to do anything to assist with the process. I am in love with Noah and he is already spoiled!!!! I've recommended everyone I talk to about your company! Thank you so much for my new baby!
We got Benji almost two years ago, I can't not imagine being without him. He gets into things ,but he's the sweetest dog anyone can have.
I made the decision to get a puppy 3 1/2 years ago and found premier pups by chance. This was the best decision I’ve ever made. Elliott is the best friend I could have ever asked for. He is full of love and follows me everywhere. He’s no longer mixed color.. he’s now my little blonde bombshell. I’ve recommended premier pups to many, and I’ll continue to do so. Might even add another puppy to our tiny family! Thank you so much guys!
We purchased Sophie 4 years ago and she has been the light of our lives! She has a great personality and loves to play and snuggle with everyone one in our home, including our other dog, Sparky. We are so happy that we purchased from Premier Pups, as their service was amazing.
This beautiful little guy is a joy. He loves every person and every dog. When I was trying to decide which puppy to take home with me I was told that 'Nicholas' had a great personality. Turns out Keegan nee Nicholas is the perfect fit for me and a great dog.
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.
It has been almost 9 months with my wonderful golden chicken nugget and I couldn't be any happier! he is literally the love of my life. what an amazing place to get you pup from he came to us fully healthy, and so tiny! he has grown so much but he is still a very small pupper! This team made the whole process super easy, we did make a mistake and they PERSONALLY called us and said that we chose local pick up instead of basic shipping! thank goodness they told us that or it would have been a messy situation. on the other hand Milo ( Henley )is the craziest most fun and energetic dog I have had so far and its amazing because he gets along with my little cousins and baby nephews! he his the sweetest thing you could ever meet and training him was SUPER EASY, does not shed at all unless you brush him, and he is a hypoallergenic pup with is great for my mom. side we have gotten my little nugget the journey has been amazing! just a few weeks after we got him the team called us and asked how he was doing and if he arrived alright and safe, I am telling you this is a perfect site to get your future pup because we are definitely getting another baby from this team VERY SOON!!!
We looked for a puppy for years before we decided to finally adopt Lemmy from Premier Pups. We were skeptical about purchasing a puppy online, especially one located in a different state. However, our experience with Premier Pups was amazing! We picked up our Lemmy at the airport and then we received a couple of phone calls from Premier Pups asking us how Lemmy was doing. The whole process was well-organized and efficient. Premier Pups also has wonderful puppies....probably the best puppies you'll find online. Lemmy is the smartest, cutest little furbaby ever. She is so incredibly loving and sweet....we love her and can't imagine life without her! Thank you Premier Pups!!
