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.

Name: Bean (Formerly Neil)
Breed: Morkie
Client: Hayley Koch
Loc: Aspinwall,PA

He is my first puppy ever owned in our household since my parents never wanted a pet until I was able to afford and take care of it myself. I am not a college graduate and have a big kid job so the first thing I did was get my darling best friend Bean. He is now 6 months old and is full grown according to the vetrinarian and doing fabulous. He was timid at first and still somewhat is to new people when outside of the home but is absolutely loving to anyone who visits our home and to our family. He is extremely playful and loves all of his toys especially his little dog blanket that came home with him. I am extremely thrilled with my decision to get a pet for my first real purchase and premier pups couldn't have been more helpful with my questions and supply gathering prior to bringing him home. I know that when I am ready in the future to get him a friend I will definitely be going back to Premier Pups.

Loc: Pittsburgh, PA

I drove all the way out to this facility to pick up my sweet little girl! I’ve wanted a little dog my whole life and with an unexpected, tragic loss of my mom- I decided that I need a little being to help me cope with my grief. She has brought so much light into my life! She’s so affectionate and lovable. I spend a lot of time with her and only after a couple months she is capable of doing so many tricks- very smart! Premier Pups have been amazing and answered so many questions I had. The preventive medicine was very useful and my dog passed her first vet appointment with flying colors! Looking forward to getting our 3rd puppy in the near future from premier pups!
