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 are first-time dog owners and we cannot be more than thrilled with our experience with Premier Pups. From day 1, Premier Pups was eager to answer all our questions over email and supply us with the information we needed to make an offer. We have now introduced Gavin to our family. Gavin arrived on time and was healthy and full of life. He has been everything we expected and more. We definitely recommend Premier Pups!
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 ??
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!
We received Baila aka Elsa on 1/13/19. Baila has become the joy of my life and the ultimate entertainment at my job. Everybody around her just can’t get enough. The joke around my office is that she the company pup. The whole process was flawless and I couldn’t be happier with premier pups. Their staff is informative and amazing, they will help you with anything no questions asked! If I ever decide to add another pup to our family I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Thank you premier pups, I didn’t know I could be this in love!

I drove all the way out to this facility to pick up my sweet little girl! I’ve wanted a little dog my whole life and with an unexpected, tragic loss of my mom- I decided that I need a little being to help me cope with my grief. She has brought so much light into my life! She’s so affectionate and lovable. I spend a lot of time with her and only after a couple months she is capable of doing so many tricks- very smart! Premier Pups have been amazing and answered so many questions I had. The preventive medicine was very useful and my dog passed her first vet appointment with flying colors! Looking forward to getting our 3rd puppy in the near future from premier pups!
Thank you for my amazing fur baby he is soo loved and spoiled hes a true blessing.this experience was awesome.forever grateful.
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.
I purchased my sweet lil Sampson 2 1/2 yrs ago from you guts and I must say it was the absolute best decision EVER!

I will definitely be purchasing my next Morkie from Premier Pups and recommend them to anyone interested in adopting a fur baby...thanks you guys :)
