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.

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!
The customer service team was there for me every step of the way! They ensured to keep me informed while he was being transported to Tampa and took care of his flight reservations. After he arrived they checked on him every day! The team provided and info packet and nutritional supplements to ensure he was well nourished his first couple weeks at home. I got text messages making sure he was eating and adjusting well. He was in perfect health when I brought him to the veterinarian and they were impressed with the vaccination paperwork I received from Premier Pups. I was honestly nervous to buy a pet so far away, but Dexter is awesome! He's so smart and well behaved. I couldn't have asked for a better puppy- he's almost completely house trained at 4 months old and listens so well! The breeder Premier Pups works with must be great! Thanks for an awesome experience and an awesome puppy, he's the best! <3
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 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!
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.
We purchased our puppy in November. Every one that we had communication with at Premier Pups were very pleasant to deal with. Mr. Mickey is a grown up name for such a little guy, but he carries it well. As you see in the photo, he loves to help out on the computer. :) He's been a healthy and delightful dog and we're on the hunt for a playmate for Mr. Mickey from Premier Pups.
We got Benji almost two years ago, I can't not imagine being without him. He gets into things ,but he's the sweetest dog anyone can have.
Boba is a Morkie born in July. She was sent safely to us landing in San Francisco, CA with all the supplies needed including a crate, food, documents and preventative medications. Puppy pickup was convenient and secure so if you live in California, you will be happy knowing your puppy will have safe travels! Boba Is very, very energetic and loves to cuddle and human affection. She loves everyone from our family, especially children and spends lots of time playing with her toys. Choosing a Morkie was perfect as they are very clean, truly hypoallergenic and easy to maintain. Highly recommended from a happy family!
We were blessed to pick up Marco January 25, 2018! He is the sweetest and most loving dog! We thought since today is his first birthday we'd share a puppy picture and an updated picture of our perfectly healthy little boy!
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!
