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 Am so in Love with baby Ivy, Thank you Premier Pups ! this is my first time having a pet and I love her whole little life. she is so sweet.
Mika has brought so much joy to our family as well as our 10.5 yr old dog. Her brother passed away and fell under depression until mika came along to brighten her day! Thank you premier pups for keeping an eye on during her transition phase and answering all my questions!
Day 5 ...We love little Gracie. She’s fitting right Into our home and our hearts. Pleased so far with her quality and the process with premier pups.
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!
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 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!
We love our Goose!! (Formerly Doug) Goose has so much personality and loves to play. He doesn’t “yap” much like other small dogs and has picked up on good habits very quickly which has made basic training pretty smooth! Premier Pups had such an amazing process and service, made everything so easy and I appreciate all the preparation and after pick up check ins they did. This was my first puppy and I had done lots of research on my own, but premiere pups provided me with so much step by step information that it took away so much stress of being a “bad” first time dog mom! Our puppy is the sweetest addition to our family and I will use premiere pups in the future.
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!
Thank you Premier for giving us such a special pup. Picked up (Ellen), now Stella on 9/2/17. She has adjusted wonderfully. Her training has been amazing with no indoor accidents at all. She is a sweet love bug! I would recommend Premier Pups to anyone as they really care about their puppies. I had some questions and when I called anyone I spoke to was glad to offer their assistance and guidance. Premier has called several times to check up on us and Stella is off to a wonderful start and is loved by everyone she has come to meet. Everyone asks where we got her and I am more than happy to share that we went to Ohio to pick her up and she was so worth the trip! Thank you Premier Pups!
This beautiful little guy is a joy. He loves every person and every dog. When I was trying to decide which puppy to take home with me I was told that 'Nicholas' had a great personality. Turns out Keegan nee Nicholas is the perfect fit for me and a great dog.
