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.

Thank you Premier Pups for making the transition so easy ! You were awesome!! I highly recommend them!!!
We picked up Banjo (formerly Eric) on Election Day 2020. Our girls had no idea what we had gone to Ohio to do and they cried tears of joy when we surprised them. He has brought so much joy to our home and we love him so much! Premier Pups was wonderful, working with us to set up his pickup and with checking in with us for a week after his arrival home. We have already recommended PP to others! Thanks so much for helping us make special memories with our family.
We adopted Christian, now named Teddy at the end of February. We were a bit nervous because we live in Arizona so Teddy had to fly to meet us. He arrived safe and happy. Everything was perfect. This was such an easy process and we couldn’t ask for a happier puppy. He has such a great personality and is so much fun. My husband and I were in love with him the moment we picked him up. Thank you Premier Pups for everything!
I bought Balú about three weeks ago and it has been amazing. I’m extremely grateful to Premier Pups for their service and the amazing puppy they gave me. From the moment I bought him to picking him up in the airport to now that he is settled at home, it has just been an amazing experience!
We purchased Sophie 4 years ago and she has been the light of our lives! She has a great personality and loves to play and snuggle with everyone one in our home, including our other dog, Sparky. We are so happy that we purchased from Premier Pups, as their service was amazing.
We are first-time dog owners and we cannot be more than thrilled with our experience with Premier Pups. From day 1, Premier Pups was eager to answer all our questions over email and supply us with the information we needed to make an offer. We have now introduced Gavin to our family. Gavin arrived on time and was healthy and full of life. He has been everything we expected and more. We definitely recommend Premier Pups!
It’s been about 6 weeks since Kenzie has been home with us. It took her almost 15 minutes to get start running around after we got home from the airport! She is just a ball of energy and love! She is a little bit stubborn at times, but is learning pretty quick. I don’t think we could’ve found a more cute or healthy puppy.
Her original name was Sasha. We changed it to Mindy. She is a ball full of energy. I love her!!!! SHE IS PERFECT!!!
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 purchased our puppy in November. Every one that we had communication with at Premier Pups were very pleasant to deal with. Mr. Mickey is a grown up name for such a little guy, but he carries it well. As you see in the photo, he loves to help out on the computer. :) He's been a healthy and delightful dog and we're on the hunt for a playmate for Mr. Mickey from Premier Pups.
