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 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!
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!
It’s been about 6 weeks since Kenzie has been home with us. It took her almost 15 minutes to get start running around after we got home from the airport! She is just a ball of energy and love! She is a little bit stubborn at times, but is learning pretty quick. I don’t think we could’ve found a more cute or healthy puppy.
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.
We purchased Ziggy last year on Mother's day weekend we had a morkie that was 8 years old and passed away two weeks earlier. My heart was broken went to Premierpups and fell in love with Ziggy. He has brought so much joy and happiness to us. He is now 1 years old and is loved very much! Thank you
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!!!
We have had Lois for a little over a year now and cannot imagine life without her. Admittedly I was uneasy about buying online and having her shipped. Premier pups made it so easy, called several times to check on her when we first got her and seemed genuinely concerned with her well being. Lois arrived very healthy and it was apparent that she had been taken care of. She has grown to just over 8 pounds and is 100% healthy as she has been from day one. Thank you Premier Pups! Lois sends her love and thanks too!
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!
We had the best experience with Premier Pups!! We’ve had Joe for two years!! He is full of energy, loves to play and knows a few tricks!! Our son bought him with his own money and they are the best of friends!! If we ever choose to add to our fur family we will definitely return to Premier Pups!! Worth the drive!!

She has adapted into our family very well. She is registered as a emotional support animal for me and she has done wonders for me. I can take her anywhere and she is well behaved.
