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 received Nova by plane on December third. She was happy and playful by the time we got home. She has been such a joy and I’m so happy with the Premier Pup experience! We love Nova and she’s the perfect addition to our family! Premier pups provided all of the resources we needed and made it simple and easy. We know that our pup is healthy and happy thanks to Premier Pups!
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.
We were looking for a playmate for our 2YR old Maltipoo , because we had recently loss two of our other dogs. My sister came across Benji (aka:Damon) on the site and thought he would be a good fit for us. After seeing his cute little face there was no question that my husband and I wanted to bring him home. We've only had Benji a month, but it seems like he's been here forever. He is getting along fine with his two big brothers and all is well. I would definitely recommend premier pups to anyone who is interested in finding a furry friend. The staff stayed in contact with us the first two weeks after we brought Benji home to make sure he was doing ok. We truly appreciated that they were interested in his well being.
Her original name was Sasha. We changed it to Mindy. She is a ball full of energy. I love her!!!! SHE IS PERFECT!!!
Tomorrow 11/11/19 our baby girl Baila turns one! She has been a absolute joy in my life... almost another child! Her demeanor is amazing! Baila goes to work with me in a office setting everyday with no issues. Everybody loves her! I’m so thankful for premier pups, it’s the best decision I could have ever made. We love are little girl more now then words could say!
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.
We were blessed to pick up Marco January 25, 2018! He is the sweetest and most loving dog! We thought since today is his first birthday we'd share a puppy picture and an updated picture of our perfectly healthy little boy!
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.
Thank you Premier Pups for the newest addition to our family. We are so in love with our new puppy. He is the most adorable puppy ever.
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.
