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.

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 love our sweet Sophia! She is growing and has been such a joy in our lives! We are so grateful to Premier Pups for working closely with us from a distance to find her, Face Time with her, and finally spending he afternoon playing with her on their lawn before flying home. The PP team, especially Ryan, were so helpful with detailed instructions, follow up calls and emails, just to be sure she was doing ok. We have recommended PP to over 10 people in the last month, a couple already have their new pups! Thank you and love - Raquel, Brett, and Sophia

Client: Mikaela Pascal
Loc: Los Angeles, CA

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.

Breed: Morkie
Client: Vlad and Tracy Ferrer
Loc: Ada, MI

We adopted Charlie on 1/16/2017 and it was love at first sight. Charlie arrived safe and sound and on time to the airport with out any problems or delays. The staff kept us informed at all times during his travel. It was a rough night with him crying in the crate no matter what we did. He is starting to get better now after the forth day and is very eager to potty train outside - which we are so happy about! The instructions on his care are clear and concise. We have had great support from Premier Pup staff and they have been very easy to work with! :)

We adopted two puppies from you guys, about 11 month apart in age. They are both the sweetest dogs ever. So smart and so well behaved. They both have easily learned tons of tricks, and are very social. My boyfriend points out how lucky we got with both of them everyday. Thank you for our beautiful fur babies ??

Name: Binx
Breed: Morkie
Client: Danielle S.
Loc: Westerville, OH

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!
