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.

Boba is a Morkie born in July. She was sent safely to us landing in San Francisco, CA with all the supplies needed including a crate, food, documents and preventative medications. Puppy pickup was convenient and secure so if you live in California, you will be happy knowing your puppy will have safe travels! Boba Is very, very energetic and loves to cuddle and human affection. She loves everyone from our family, especially children and spends lots of time playing with her toys. Choosing a Morkie was perfect as they are very clean, truly hypoallergenic and easy to maintain. Highly recommended from a happy family!
I Am so in Love with baby Ivy, Thank you Premier Pups ! this is my first time having a pet and I love her whole little life. she is so sweet.
We already had a Yorkie and we wanted another puppy that still had some Yorkie in it because we love that personality. The whole process of buying Ted was so simple and everyone we spoke to was very helpful. He is the perfect pup and we couldn’t be happier.
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.
We adopted Fiona (originally named Puma) December 2, 2016 for my Birthday. I have always had larger breed dogs and wanted to change it up for the next dog I owned. I had never heard of the breed Morkie until my friend told me about them and I am so greatful they did. Fiona has been the best addition to our Family. She is full of energy and is so well behaved and extremely loving. I m amazed after just four days of having her she could sit and start doing tricks. Once she is a little bit older we will deffently be looking again at premier pups for a brother or sister for Fiona! Premier Pets were extremely helpful at answering questions and making sure their animals are healthy and on time for vaccinations/wellness appointments. We are Extremely satisfied and couldn't imagine our life with out our Cute little Morkie Fiona!
I picked up Danny Wednesday Oct. 12, 2016 He is absolutely beautiful, healthy , friendly couldn't ask for a better puppy. would certainly recommend this place for anyone who loves dogs.
Wilson fit right in to our family. He adjusted very well. The whole process with Premier Pups went very smoothly. Everyone was very helpful. We were very impressed with the whole process!
Mika has brought so much joy to our family as well as our 10.5 yr old dog. Her brother passed away and fell under depression until mika came along to brighten her day! Thank you premier pups for keeping an eye on during her transition phase and answering all my questions!
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.
