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.

Winston was shipped to us in July, 2017. Winston always brings a smile to everyone’s faces when they see him. He is so sweet and loveable and he is the perfect addition to the family.
We adopted Ziggy (Ralph) on May 13th, 2017 he weighed 2 and half pounds now he is 5 pounds and he is spoiled, we are so pleased and happy with him. He has added so much joy to our lives.
I never had a puppy before prior to picking up bean almost a short 2 months ago on March 19th. I was planning to move to Raleigh NC in the upcoming months and was due to graduate PA school and start my job down there. I really wanted to have a buddy to come with me so therefore I started my puppy search since I've wanted one since I was little. My friend who also got her puppy through premier pups in the past told me to look here and I saw his face in his picture and was instantly in love. I paid my deposit and anxiously awaited the week till he was ready to go home. I couldn't be more in love with him since his arrival and he is learning more and more each day. I will be moving here soon and taking my best friend in tow. Thanks a ton Premier Pups and in the future I'll be getting his girlfriend from you as well :)
The Santos family experience with Kaya has been such a positive experience for the 8 of us the moment we picked her up from the airport. We didn't have to wait long for her arrival. Questions regarding her arrival prior to her arrival were answered promptly. Instructions were very detailed in our e-mail. After four months since Kaya's arrival, we continue to get calls with any questions and concerns that we may have with Premierpups which I think is awesome. We're really considering on adding another addition to the family.
We searched everywhere for our “perfect” dog; local shops and breeders in NJ, NY, PA, FL, but we kept coming back to your site. I spoke to several members of your staff and emailed multiple times to assure we would not be scammed. After following your site and puppies for over We saw Milo (listed as Ralph) and knew he was the one! We were skeptical about putting such a smal puppy in a long flight, but your staff hand-held us through the process and put us at ease. We received many follow up calls once he arrived to ensure he was transitioning well. We made several calls out to you with questions and concerns, all which were responsed to immediately. Two months later, Milo is a happy, active and healthy dog who completed our family. We could not be happier with him, or our experience with premier pups. Thank you!!
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 got Bradley Cooper (Monte) for a Christmas present for our daughter. Premier Pups made everything extremely easy and delivered to us a very healthy, calm and absolutely gorgeous puppy. He is easy to train and has lots of energy and smarts. Would recommend Premier Pups to anyone who asks. Thank you Premier Pups
I am so thankful that we came across Premier Pups. We have been blessed with our new addition to our family. We enjoy her so much. The interaction with everyone at Premier Pups was absolutely amazing. I was anxious at first never having a pup as small as Charleigh but after talking with them I felt a huge weight lifted off of me and confident. She has been a true blessing to our family. Oh did I mention how well she adapted to her new home? She came home on Dec 23rd at 1 lb 13 oz and is now just over 3 lbs. Premier Pups will always be a 5* in my books!! Can’t thank everyone there enough ??
