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.

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!!!

Winston was shipped to us in July, 2017. Winston always brings a smile to everyone’s faces when they see him. He is so sweet and loveable and he is the perfect addition to the family.
We were a little hesitant to purchase a pet online but everyone was so helpful and their facility is very clean neat friendly staff and we couldn't be happier with our little Mitzy
We truly are enjoying our new puppy from your facility. Chloee is such a great addition to our family. She is so loving, and so smart. We couldn’t ask for a better pup to be a part of our family. She’s been using her pee pads since 24 hours after arriving to our house, she is so fun and has such great character, so full of love and my kids love to hold her and watch her. She loves to snuggle up with us. Our Great Pyrenees even loves Chloee to the moon and back. She is absolutely perfect. Can’t thank you all enough. This has been the easiest smooth process I have ever been through, and your instructions have made everything so easy. Thank you for all you do and such a great place to get a puppy from.
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.
I saw this pup on the site along with her siblings - she was a beautiful fawn Morkie with black markings. I went with a friend to see the pup. The team was so nice and friendly. After telling my husband, we went back to purchase her. The staff member that helped us purchase her was SO informative and careful about instructions on taking her home. He urged us that we could call at anytime with questions. They gave us food, meds, and vet check up and instructions about things we should watch for. THANK YOU. Our vet a year later said she is a healthy dog from nose to tail. Her size was as promised < 7lbs. And such a social personality. Thank you Premier Pups, we love our Binx and happy to have her in our family!
We are first time dog owners and were very nervous to purchase.. We drove to Premier on a Friday afternoon to "look." We fell in love with Mila (Polly) immediately and brought her home that day. She has been a great addition to our family. She is friendly, curious, and full of energy. We aren't sure that our toes will survive puppyhood, but we love her and all of her antics!! Premier was great to work with. Great, detailed send home instructions and we appreciated the follow up calls/texts. #happy family
