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 two puppies from you guys, about 11 month apart in age. They are both the sweetest dogs ever. So smart and so well behaved. They both have easily learned tons of tricks, and are very social. My boyfriend points out how lucky we got with both of them everyday. Thank you for our beautiful fur babies ??
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.
I got Bella( aka Bobbie) in July and I'm obsessed with her! She is so playful and loving. Thank you premier pup for making this happen. My boys love her so much. Thanks again
Not only do my girlfriend and I love our dog, we love her so much that we got her registered through the state as a therapy dog. We bring her EVERYWHERE! The movie theaters , shopping, the park, EVEN ON OUR CRUISE! Premier pups is a great great business and they have great pets. The are also VERY Premier! If you go anywhere else and see pricing for teacups/micro's, they are more than double the price. There website is super user friendly and shows all the information you need to make another addition to your family. I will be buying another puppy soon so my Joey can have a friend. I am also going to buy one from premier, for a gift for my mother!
I had gotten a teacup Morkie 8 months ago, we named her (hyper) Piper.. She’s a handful haha! I was overly happy with the way this company handled the travel and advice/check up phone calls even a weeks after I got her. At 8 months Piper grew to be bigger than what I had expected in a “teacup”. Almost 8lbs... still small but, not what I wanted. I contacted Premier Pups regarding my disappointment and they (Matthew) worked diligently with me to get me a puppy that would be more suitable fit for me. I happened to see a Micro teacup Morkie on the site so I called them immediately. Soon she would be mine. Her name is Mila and I am over the moon in love with her! She is 3.5 months old, 1.8oz, doing well and has the most pleasant personality. She is so mild mannered and has such a sweet demeanor, I feel so blessed and lucky I found her! Thanks to Premier Pups and staff for making my experience with you a great one! I would without a doubt, refer your company and use you again in the future however, right now, my hands and heart are full with two!
We’ve had Koda for almost a year now. She is such a good dog! She is smart and happy and has the best little personality. We can’t imagine our lives without her. She has brought us so much joy! She was easy to potty train and she’s been in perfect health from day one. We had an amazing experience adopting her from Premier Pups and we would do it again in a heartbeat.
Since we got Gizzy 10/6/2016. She has been a joy to our family. She has been easy to train and she is very playful. Take her walks about four times a day and this has been the most exercise that I have gotten. She has brought me back to life being I have someone to care for all) the time. 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.
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.
We love our new Morkie Teacup Furr Baby she's blessed our family with her personality. She loves to cuddle play and isn't a barker. We have had such a great experience with premier pup from Ohio! Thank you Premier and Mike for calling Daily to check up on our Tink! Nita in Illinois
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.
