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 purchased Sophie 4 years ago and she has been the light of our lives! She has a great personality and loves to play and snuggle with everyone one in our home, including our other dog, Sparky. We are so happy that we purchased from Premier Pups, as their service was amazing.
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!!
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 adopted Fiona (originally named Puma) December 2, 2016 for my Birthday. I have always had larger breed dogs and wanted to change it up for the next dog I owned. I had never heard of the breed Morkie until my friend told me about them and I am so greatful they did. Fiona has been the best addition to our Family. She is full of energy and is so well behaved and extremely loving. I m amazed after just four days of having her she could sit and start doing tricks. Once she is a little bit older we will deffently be looking again at premier pups for a brother or sister for Fiona! Premier Pets were extremely helpful at answering questions and making sure their animals are healthy and on time for vaccinations/wellness appointments. We are Extremely satisfied and couldn't imagine our life with out our Cute little Morkie Fiona!
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.
We’ve had Koda for almost a year now. She is such a good dog! She is smart and happy and has the best little personality. We can’t imagine our lives without her. She has brought us so much joy! She was easy to potty train and she’s been in perfect health from day one. We had an amazing experience adopting her from Premier Pups and we would do it again in a heartbeat.
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.
We picked up Toffee on June 26 and was surprised to see how happy and how easily she adjusted to our family. Over the next few days she became very lethargic and being only one and a half pounds I immediately became concerned. I called Premier Pups and got in contact with Mike Schoeff. Mike patiently stayed in contact with me via phone and text for the next several days advising me until she recuperated. My family and I were devastated thinking she would not make it through this ordeal. I am very thankful and surprised at all the attention and time that Mike put into helping us. We definitely would recommend Premier Pups. Thank You.
We have had Milo for a few days now. He is healthy and already settling in very well. He is now full of energy and loves running around and playing. We truly enjoy him and so glad we chose Premier Pups!!
