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.

MORKIE

Name: Coco (originally Macie)
Breed: Morkie
Client: Macy and Maggie
Loc: Franklin, TN

We got Coco for Christmas in 2017. She's three now. She is the best dog in the world. We don't regret getting her from premier pups at all.

Name: Chloe
Breed: Morkie
Client: Krista
Loc: Cumming, GA

We adopted Chloe (formerly Danielle) in September. She is such a spunky little girl with personality galore. She and our 10 year old Maltese are becoming friends and the kids love to play with her. We were hesitant at first to choose a puppy only with a photo and to ship such a little puppy on a plane, but she is healthy as can be. We couldn't be happier with our decision.

Not only do my girlfriend and I love our dog, we love her so much that we got her registered through the state as a therapy dog. We bring her EVERYWHERE! The movie theaters , shopping, the park, EVEN ON OUR CRUISE! Premier pups is a great great business and they have great pets. The are also VERY Premier! If you go anywhere else and see pricing for teacups/micro's, they are more than double the price. There website is super user friendly and shows all the information you need to make another addition to your family. I will be buying another puppy soon so my Joey can have a friend. I am also going to buy one from premier, for a gift for my mother!

Loc: Birmingham, AL

Great company! I was worried about Fen flying alone - the minute I saw his big eyes and smile I knew he had been in good hands from start to finish. Fen is such a joy - remember these little guys are worth every penny! They become part of you family for years. My husband and I have decided our next dog will be from Premier Pets. Everyone there showed great love, compassion and concern for all of our needs.

We love our Goose!! (Formerly Doug) Goose has so much personality and loves to play. He doesn’t “yap” much like other small dogs and has picked up on good habits very quickly which has made basic training pretty smooth! Premier Pups had such an amazing process and service, made everything so easy and I appreciate all the preparation and after pick up check ins they did. This was my first puppy and I had done lots of research on my own, but premiere pups provided me with so much step by step information that it took away so much stress of being a “bad” first time dog mom! Our puppy is the sweetest addition to our family and I will use premiere pups in the future.

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.
