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 got our Morkie Benji(previously named Ralph) He is so playful and spoiled he's already gone to vacations with us and is always happy. He is so tiny we can tKe him pretty much everywhere.Everytime someone sees my 3 year ild holding him they think he is a stuffed toy. He is so perfect !
We got Coco for Christmas in 2017. She's three now. She is the best dog in the world. We don't regret getting her from premier pups at all.
Her original name was Sasha. We changed it to Mindy. She is a ball full of energy. I love her!!!! SHE IS PERFECT!!!
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!
It has almost been a year since Sadie Belle (Cupcake) came home with us and filled our lives with love and happiness. She has made dealing with the Pandemic much easier and brought a lot of joy into our home. We want to thank Premier Pups for being so professional and caring during our first year with her. I would highly recommend Premier Pups to anyone thinking of adding a puppy to your family!
We want to thank Matt, Michelle and Kasey ( with a K ) for our amazing puppy. All went above and beyond and we are over the top happy. This is our second puppy in 6 months. I almost can't resist coming back for another! My family and friends highly recommend Premiere Pups. Its the only place to pourchse your puppy. Thank you all again.
I saw this pup on the site along with her siblings - she was a beautiful fawn Morkie with black markings. I went with a friend to see the pup. The team was so nice and friendly. After telling my husband, we went back to purchase her. The staff member that helped us purchase her was SO informative and careful about instructions on taking her home. He urged us that we could call at anytime with questions. They gave us food, meds, and vet check up and instructions about things we should watch for. THANK YOU. Our vet a year later said she is a healthy dog from nose to tail. Her size was as promised < 7lbs. And such a social personality. Thank you Premier Pups, we love our Binx and happy to have her in our family!
I couldn't be happier with choosing to go with PremierPups. The staff was very polite and informative from the time i arrived to the time i left. They even call you to check up on how the puppy is doing. Bonnie (formally Melodi) has been a cute little addition to my life. Thank you for such a great first time experience at becoming a pet owner.
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 ??
I would like to thank Premier Pups for everything that they have done for us. Our puppy Dee (now Harley) is a great little puppy. Premier Pups have contacted me a few times to see how Dee was doing. Dee was only 1.5 lbs when we got her on 6 November 2017 she is now 2.1 lbs. I've already taken her to my vet and was informed that she is a very healthy puppy. This is the second puppy that my family has gotten from Premier Pups - my daughter and her family got a Tedding Bear from Premier in June 2017 and he is also a very healthy puppy I want to especially thank Kacee for asking all my texts and emails. She was always professional and never seemed to mind answering all my questions. Keep up the good work Premier Pups -
