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 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.
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 searched everywhere for our “perfect” dog; local shops and breeders in NJ, NY, PA, FL, but we kept coming back to your site. I spoke to several members of your staff and emailed multiple times to assure we would not be scammed. After following your site and puppies for over We saw Milo (listed as Ralph) and knew he was the one! We were skeptical about putting such a smal puppy in a long flight, but your staff hand-held us through the process and put us at ease. We received many follow up calls once he arrived to ensure he was transitioning well. We made several calls out to you with questions and concerns, all which were responsed to immediately. Two months later, Milo is a happy, active and healthy dog who completed our family. We could not be happier with him, or our experience with premier pups. Thank you!!
We received Baila aka Elsa on 1/13/19. Baila has become the joy of my life and the ultimate entertainment at my job. Everybody around her just can’t get enough. The joke around my office is that she the company pup. The whole process was flawless and I couldn’t be happier with premier pups. Their staff is informative and amazing, they will help you with anything no questions asked! If I ever decide to add another pup to our family I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Thank you premier pups, I didn’t know I could be this in love!
The first puppy we had we had to give back due to some situation changes. So I promised my daughter I would get her a new puppy just as soon as we were settled in new city. Bought and daughter picked out herself on website our 11 month old now coco. She was only 10 weeks when we got her. I never knew you could love a dog so much. She’s smart and feisty and cuddly. The process of ordering her and receiving her was so smooth and something we will never forget. Thank you! Can’t imagine our home without her now. It’s complete.
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.
Thank you Premier Pups for the newest addition to our family. We are so in love with our new puppy. He is the most adorable puppy ever.
I got Bella( aka Bobbie) in July and I'm obsessed with her! She is so playful and loving. Thank you premier pup for making this happen. My boys love her so much. Thanks again
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 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!
