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: Louie
Breed: Morkie
Client: Larissa Baines
Loc: Los Angeles, CA

I have wanted a dog for a long time and it took some convincing for my husband to be open to getting a puppy. When we first got louie (old name Zepplin) he was 9weeks old, 1 lb and 13ounces and he was so shy. The breeder did a fantastic job with Louie and with the premier pups assistance getting Louie transferred from Ohio to Los Angeles. My husband did not like dogs before Louie, but absolutely adores Louie and it is hard to separate the two. Louie has brought so much excitement to our life, he is our spoiled little baby.

?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!

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 ??

First of all this is the best experience I’ve had adopting my fur-baby. It was such an awesome experience. I received my puppy from airport and arrived in wonderful health happy playful and sweet. She was checked by vet two days later and given excellent health. The care directions are thorough and outstanding. The well check calls to me are very much appreciated and addressed all my questions with patience and professionalism. You could tell that they are a company that cares about their pets and customers. You can even FaceTime with your pet while you wait to receive them when you want. It’s been 2weeks since I brought her home and she’s everything I thought she would be. Thank you premiere pups for all your hard work in keeping your puppies healthy happy and loved until they are in their forever homes. I’m grateful. I was very nervous about online adoption but you are the real deal and the experience was easy fast thorough well thought out from beginning to end. You covered everything! All the best.
