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: Christian
Breed: Morkie
Client: Liz Koger
Loc: Laveen,Az

We adopted Christian, now named Teddy at the end of February. We were a bit nervous because we live in Arizona so Teddy had to fly to meet us. He arrived safe and happy. Everything was perfect. This was such an easy process and we couldn’t ask for a happier puppy. He has such a great personality and is so much fun. My husband and I were in love with him the moment we picked him up. Thank you Premier Pups for everything!

Name: Toffee
Breed: Morkie
Client: Eileen Badia
Loc: Tall timbers, MD

We picked up Toffee on June 26 and was surprised to see how happy and how easily she adjusted to our family. Over the next few days she became very lethargic and being only one and a half pounds I immediately became concerned. I called Premier Pups and got in contact with Mike Schoeff. Mike patiently stayed in contact with me via phone and text for the next several days advising me until she recuperated. My family and I were devastated thinking she would not make it through this ordeal. I am very thankful and surprised at all the attention and time that Mike put into helping us. We definitely would recommend Premier Pups. Thank You.

We recently purchased our new fur baby Saint (Homer) in August after doing our research and reviews and we could not have been more satisfied with our addition. They provided all that was needed for a safe travel and all the meds required to ensure our baby was as healthy as possible. If your follow the directions and ensure you take your baby to your local vet to provide the full physical and stamp of approval, you will be overwhelmed with joy.

I made the decision to get a puppy 3 1/2 years ago and found premier pups by chance. This was the best decision I’ve ever made. Elliott is the best friend I could have ever asked for. He is full of love and follows me everywhere. He’s no longer mixed color.. he’s now my little blonde bombshell. I’ve recommended premier pups to many, and I’ll continue to do so. Might even add another puppy to our tiny family! Thank you so much guys!
