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.

This team made the whole process super easy, we did make a mistake and they PERSONALLY called us and said that we chose local pick up instead of basic shipping! thank goodness they told us that or it would have been a messy situation. on the other hand Milo ( Henley )is the craziest most fun and energetic dog I have had so far and its amazing because he gets along with my little cousins and baby nephews! he his the sweetest thing you could ever meet and training him was SUPER EASY, does not shed at all unless you brush him, and he is a hypoallergenic pup with is great for my mom. side we have gotten my little nugget the journey has been amazing! just a few weeks after we got him the team called us and asked how he was doing and if he arrived alright and safe, I am telling you this is a perfect site to get your future pup because we are definitely getting another baby from this team VERY SOON!!!

Breed: Morkie
Client: Heather Sexton
Loc: North Ridgeville, Ohio

When our previous Morkie passed away, we were left with a huge hole in our hearts to fill. I began looking online, and stumbled across Premier Pups. I was hesitant at first because I wanted to make sure it was a legitimate business. I read reviews and also called Premier and asked a lot of questions. They were wonderful people to work with and they breed healthy and happy puppies!! Our little girl Minnie (formerly Nina) was born on 4/3/2020, which happens to be the day that our other Morkie passed away. It was definitely meant to be, and Minnie has transitioned into our home perfectly!! Premier called and checked up on Minnie and answered all of our questions! I have found our new puppy breeder! Will definitely be using Premier in the future! Thank you so much for making our family whole again!!

Name: Dexter
Breed: Morkie
Client: Derek Cravens
Loc: Tampa, FL

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

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!

I made the decision to get a puppy 3 1/2 years ago and found premier pups by chance. This was the best decision I’ve ever made. Elliott is the best friend I could have ever asked for. He is full of love and follows me everywhere. He’s no longer mixed color.. he’s now my little blonde bombshell. I’ve recommended premier pups to many, and I’ll continue to do so. Might even add another puppy to our tiny family! Thank you so much guys!
