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: Noah
Breed: Morkie
Client: Shannon Smith
Loc: Maryland

I have had Noah for a week today and can't stop staring at him. He is the most adorable pup ever!!!! I was extremely nervous about flying a pet. But, when he came in he was fine! I didn't realize that it is actually a cargo facility that he was going to be brought to versus actually going to the airport to pick him up. But, it worked out fine. He has only had 2 accidents and is a good eater. I don't know that the name should be Premierpups.com, adorablepups.com fits better. The pups are pretty pricy, but well worth it. The staff are very helpful and willing to do anything to assist with the process. I am in love with Noah and he is already spoiled!!!! I've recommended everyone I talk to about your company! Thank you so much for my new baby!

Loc: Boston, MA

?2/16/17? My family and I have been wanting to have a furry friend for quite a while. I was looking to adopt one from a shelter, so decided to do some online research. After so much researching and many clicks, I came across Premier Pups. I fell in love with every puppy I saw, but there was something about Bella that called my attention. Knew at that moment that she was the one, and clicked the adopt now button, without any hesitation. Read reviews after purchase was made, and was even happier knowing I made a great decision. It has only been 3 days since Bella's arrival, and we are all in love. She's already spoiled, and seems to be just as happy as we are. Premier pups it has been a pleasure working with you, thank you for all the follow up calls, and for getting our Bella home safe to us. We have already spoken highly of you, and will wholeheartedly recommend you to family, and friends. Continue making homes happy, with your adorable, healthy pups!

Breed: Morkie
Client: Gary DeBate
Loc: Ponchatoula, Louisiana

It’s been about 6 weeks since Kenzie has been home with us. It took her almost 15 minutes to get start running around after we got home from the airport! She is just a ball of energy and love! She is a little bit stubborn at times, but is learning pretty quick. I don’t think we could’ve found a more cute or healthy puppy.

Breed: Morkie
Client: Iren & Viet
Loc: Los Angeles, CA

Thom was originally purchased by a friend for her family, but caught a snag in finding a place that allowed pets. We were looking for a brother for our Maltese Biggie and our Sibe Joni so we thought Thom would be perfect! The three siblings have been inseparable ever since! Thom is the sweetest and so smart and playful! We thank you so much for being such a reputable site and definitely will be back just in case we want a sister for the pack ;)

I was a bit nervous about having a young small pup flying from Ohio to Denver. But I can honestly tell you this was the best experience ever. I felt like I was dealing with a 5 star organization. The info on the flights was on time and perfect. the pick up went great. Premier Pups called and emailed daily so we never missed a step. My local vet said she had never seen such comprehensive paperwork and delivery. WE LOVE YOU and we love are new fur baby!
