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.

We’ve had Koda for almost a year now. She is such a good dog! She is smart and happy and has the best little personality. We can’t imagine our lives without her. She has brought us so much joy! She was easy to potty train and she’s been in perfect health from day one. We had an amazing experience adopting her from Premier Pups and we would do it again in a heartbeat.

We love our sweet Sophia! She is growing and has been such a joy in our lives! We are so grateful to Premier Pups for working closely with us from a distance to find her, Face Time with her, and finally spending he afternoon playing with her on their lawn before flying home. The PP team, especially Ryan, were so helpful with detailed instructions, follow up calls and emails, just to be sure she was doing ok. We have recommended PP to over 10 people in the last month, a couple already have their new pups! Thank you and love - Raquel, Brett, and Sophia

Name: Charlie (aka Jackson)
Breed: Morkie
Client: Vlad and Tracy Ferrer
Loc: Ada, MI

We adopted Charlie on 1/16/2017 and it was love at first sight. Charlie arrived safe and sound and on time to the airport with out any problems or delays. The staff kept us informed at all times during his travel. It was a rough night with him crying in the crate no matter what we did. He is starting to get better now after the forth day and is very eager to potty train outside - which we are so happy about! The instructions on his care are clear and concise. We have had great support from Premier Pup staff and they have been very easy to work with! :)

Name: Bean
Breed: Morkie
Client: Hayley Koch
Loc: Pittsburgh, PA

I never had a puppy before prior to picking up bean almost a short 2 months ago on March 19th. I was planning to move to Raleigh NC in the upcoming months and was due to graduate PA school and start my job down there. I really wanted to have a buddy to come with me so therefore I started my puppy search since I've wanted one since I was little. My friend who also got her puppy through premier pups in the past told me to look here and I saw his face in his picture and was instantly in love. I paid my deposit and anxiously awaited the week till he was ready to go home. I couldn't be more in love with him since his arrival and he is learning more and more each day. I will be moving here soon and taking my best friend in tow. Thanks a ton Premier Pups and in the future I'll be getting his girlfriend from you as well :)

Breed: Morkie
Client: Katie Ernst
Loc: Shelby, Ohio

We truly are enjoying our new puppy from your facility. Chloee is such a great addition to our family. She is so loving, and so smart. We couldn’t ask for a better pup to be a part of our family. She’s been using her pee pads since 24 hours after arriving to our house, she is so fun and has such great character, so full of love and my kids love to hold her and watch her. She loves to snuggle up with us. Our Great Pyrenees even loves Chloee to the moon and back. She is absolutely perfect. Can’t thank you all enough. This has been the easiest smooth process I have ever been through, and your instructions have made everything so easy. Thank you for all you do and such a great place to get a puppy from.

Great company! I was worried about Fen flying alone - the minute I saw his big eyes and smile I knew he had been in good hands from start to finish. Fen is such a joy - remember these little guys are worth every penny! They become part of you family for years. My husband and I have decided our next dog will be from Premier Pets. Everyone there showed great love, compassion and concern for all of our needs.
