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.

I saw this pup on the site along with her siblings - she was a beautiful fawn Morkie with black markings. I went with a friend to see the pup. The team was so nice and friendly. After telling my husband, we went back to purchase her. The staff member that helped us purchase her was SO informative and careful about instructions on taking her home. He urged us that we could call at anytime with questions. They gave us food, meds, and vet check up and instructions about things we should watch for. THANK YOU. Our vet a year later said she is a healthy dog from nose to tail. Her size was as promised < 7lbs. And such a social personality. Thank you Premier Pups, we love our Binx and happy to have her in our family!
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 :)
We got Bradley Cooper (Monte) for a Christmas present for our daughter. Premier Pups made everything extremely easy and delivered to us a very healthy, calm and absolutely gorgeous puppy. He is easy to train and has lots of energy and smarts. Would recommend Premier Pups to anyone who asks. Thank you Premier Pups
She is the best dog ever very outgoing, great at the groomer they ask if they can use her for their classes. She loves to travel and she is the ideal sweetheart baby!!! She will be 3 in April.
Thom was originally purchased by a friend for her family, but caught a snag in finding a place that allowed pets. We were looking for a brother for our Maltese Biggie and our Sibe Joni so we thought Thom would be perfect! The three siblings have been inseparable ever since! Thom is the sweetest and so smart and playful! We thank you so much for being such a reputable site and definitely will be back just in case we want a sister for the pack ;)
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.
Absolutely in love and impressed with how premier pups has responded to all my questions and checked in everyday.
I drove over 8 hours from Maryland to Ohio to pick Harley up for the first time 8 years ago, and to say it was the best decision of my life would be an understatement. He is the very best thing to ever happen to me, the love of my life, my best friend, and I simply could not imagine life without him.. I can't begin to thank afforable pups for bringing him into my life.
