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.

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.
We picked up our sweet Blakey last May! We have had her now for 10 months! She was our very first puppy and we are enjoying her every second ! She is a love! She will be a year old on March 24 th! Thank you Premier Pups for making the transition so easy ! You were awesome!! I highly recommend them!!!
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 retired in 2016 and always said we would not get a dog then something came over us and we felt like we couldn't live without one! We chose Presley and she came in 4 days. It seems like she has always been a part of our family. Presley is so playful our daughter in law calls her Coco-loco. She is funny, loving and we just love her. She chose my husband to be her person and the two are inseparable. We love this little girl so much that today we selected a playmate for her and can't wait for his arrival! Dealing with Premier Pups was a great experience. A real person answers when you call and they are all so responsive and willing to assist however they can! We highly recommend getting your healthy loving puppy from them.
It’s been a while since we posted but I wanted to update on our Chloee! She is such a wonderful piece to our family! She is so spoiled with love..... she’s everyone’s dream come true..... dances for us all day and all night! She’s my snuggle bear at night.... my husband can never stop playing with her because she’s so fun! She’s super intelligent too! We couldn’t have asked for a better pup! Thank you!
I got kaya in June and I'm obsessed with her! She is so playful and loving! Premier pups was so helpful with everything and helped me get my dream puppy! In the future I would definitely go back to them for a brother or sister for her. It was great to be able to get her shipped all the way to CA, and the process was so easy. Thank you!
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
We received Baila aka Elsa on 1/13/19. Baila has become the joy of my life and the ultimate entertainment at my job. Everybody around her just can’t get enough. The joke around my office is that she the company pup. The whole process was flawless and I couldn’t be happier with premier pups. Their staff is informative and amazing, they will help you with anything no questions asked! If I ever decide to add another pup to our family I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Thank you premier pups, I didn’t know I could be this in love!
We got Coco for Christmas in 2017. She's three now. She is the best dog in the world. We don't regret getting her from premier pups at all.
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.
