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.

Couldn't have been more pleased with your professional services and our precious pup! She adjusted quickly and beautifully! ??
We love our new Morkie Teacup Furr Baby she's blessed our family with her personality. She loves to cuddle play and isn't a barker. We have had such a great experience with premier pup from Ohio! Thank you Premier and Mike for calling Daily to check up on our Tink! Nita in Illinois
We got Bradley Cooper (Monte) for a Christmas present for our daughter. Premier Pups made everything extremely easy and delivered to us a very healthy, calm and absolutely gorgeous puppy. He is easy to train and has lots of energy and smarts. Would recommend Premier Pups to anyone who asks. Thank you Premier Pups
We had the best experience with Premier Pups!! We’ve had Joe for two years!! He is full of energy, loves to play and knows a few tricks!! Our son bought him with his own money and they are the best of friends!! If we ever choose to add to our fur family we will definitely return to Premier Pups!! Worth the drive!!
I bought Balú about three weeks ago and it has been amazing. I’m extremely grateful to Premier Pups for their service and the amazing puppy they gave me. From the moment I bought him to picking him up in the airport to now that he is settled at home, it has just been an amazing experience!
We adopted Ziggy (Ralph) on May 13th, 2017 he weighed 2 and half pounds now he is 5 pounds and he is spoiled, we are so pleased and happy with him. He has added so much joy to our lives.
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 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.
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!
My experience with Premier Pups has been nothing short of wonderful. I did a lot of research into breeders and they came out on top for sure, and now I know why. We found Zoey (formerly Quinn) and fell in love right away. I was very nervous about shipping, but not only did they talk it through with me, she arrived safe and sound and snug as a bug. She adjusted quickly and is the picture of health. Her first vet visit went well, and she’s getting along great with our older, less friendly dog. She was obviously in a home before we got her, as she was already good to go with potty training. Meaning, as soon as we take her outside, she knows it’s time to go potty, not that we don’t still have some accidents, given she’s only 10 months old so far. Not only would I recommend Premier Pups to others, and have, I would definitely get another puppy from them in the future should we decide to add to our family. Thanks so much for all the wonderful support.
