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.

Name: Dee
Breed: Morkie
Client: Elizabeth Kriegel
Loc: Philadelphia, PA

I would like to thank Premier Pups for everything that they have done for us. Our puppy Dee (now Harley) is a great little puppy. Premier Pups have contacted me a few times to see how Dee was doing. Dee was only 1.5 lbs when we got her on 6 November 2017 she is now 2.1 lbs. I've already taken her to my vet and was informed that she is a very healthy puppy. This is the second puppy that my family has gotten from Premier Pups - my daughter and her family got a Tedding Bear from Premier in June 2017 and he is also a very healthy puppy I want to especially thank Kacee for asking all my texts and emails. She was always professional and never seemed to mind answering all my questions. Keep up the good work Premier Pups -

First of all this is the best experience I’ve had adopting my fur-baby. It was such an awesome experience. I received my puppy from airport and arrived in wonderful health happy playful and sweet. She was checked by vet two days later and given excellent health. The care directions are thorough and outstanding. The well check calls to me are very much appreciated and addressed all my questions with patience and professionalism. You could tell that they are a company that cares about their pets and customers. You can even FaceTime with your pet while you wait to receive them when you want. It’s been 2weeks since I brought her home and she’s everything I thought she would be. Thank you premiere pups for all your hard work in keeping your puppies healthy happy and loved until they are in their forever homes. I’m grateful. I was very nervous about online adoption but you are the real deal and the experience was easy fast thorough well thought out from beginning to end. You covered everything! All the best.

We adopted Chloe (formerly Danielle) in September. She is such a spunky little girl with personality galore. She and our 10 year old Maltese are becoming friends and the kids love to play with her. We were hesitant at first to choose a puppy only with a photo and to ship such a little puppy on a plane, but she is healthy as can be. We couldn't be happier with our decision.

Our granddaughter had done her research on Morkies for a few year. She turned 11 in May, her parents felt she was finally responsible and mature enough to take care of a puppy. We bought her a Morkie this year from premier pups. We couldn't be happier and our granddaughter is essactic! Preimer Pups were great to work with, they have done follow up calls. You can tell the new addition to our family has had the best of care before she came to us! We love her and when she looks at you she melts your heart! Thank you Preimer Pups for helping with our new puppy. I see another puppy for my husband an I in the near future! Merry Christmas & Happy New Year, from the Moore Family!

Breed: Morkie
Client: Derek Cravens
Loc: Tampa, FL

The customer service team was there for me every step of the way! They ensured to keep me informed while he was being transported to Tampa and took care of his flight reservations. After he arrived they checked on him every day! The team provided and info packet and nutritional supplements to ensure he was well nourished his first couple weeks at home. I got text messages making sure he was eating and adjusting well. He was in perfect health when I brought him to the veterinarian and they were impressed with the vaccination paperwork I received from Premier Pups. I was honestly nervous to buy a pet so far away, but Dexter is awesome! He's so smart and well behaved. I couldn't have asked for a better puppy- he's almost completely house trained at 4 months old and listens so well! The breeder Premier Pups works with must be great! Thanks for an awesome experience and an awesome puppy, he's the best! <3
