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 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.
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!
We received Nova by plane on December third. She was happy and playful by the time we got home. She has been such a joy and I’m so happy with the Premier Pup experience! We love Nova and she’s the perfect addition to our family! Premier pups provided all of the resources we needed and made it simple and easy. We know that our pup is healthy and happy thanks to Premier Pups!
We retired in 2016 and always said we would not get a dog then something came over us and we felt like we couldn't live without one! We chose Presley and she came in 4 days. It seems like she has always been a part of our family. Presley is so playful our daughter in law calls her Coco-loco. She is funny, loving and we just love her. She chose my husband to be her person and the two are inseparable. We love this little girl so much that today we selected a playmate for her and can't wait for his arrival! Dealing with Premier Pups was a great experience. A real person answers when you call and they are all so responsive and willing to assist however they can! We highly recommend getting your healthy loving puppy from them.
Couldn't have been more pleased with your professional services and our precious pup! She adjusted quickly and beautifully! ??
This beautiful little guy is a joy. He loves every person and every dog. When I was trying to decide which puppy to take home with me I was told that 'Nicholas' had a great personality. Turns out Keegan nee Nicholas is the perfect fit for me and a great dog.
I had gotten a teacup Morkie 8 months ago, we named her (hyper) Piper.. She’s a handful haha! I was overly happy with the way this company handled the travel and advice/check up phone calls even a weeks after I got her. At 8 months Piper grew to be bigger than what I had expected in a “teacup”. Almost 8lbs... still small but, not what I wanted. I contacted Premier Pups regarding my disappointment and they (Matthew) worked diligently with me to get me a puppy that would be more suitable fit for me. I happened to see a Micro teacup Morkie on the site so I called them immediately. Soon she would be mine. Her name is Mila and I am over the moon in love with her! She is 3.5 months old, 1.8oz, doing well and has the most pleasant personality. She is so mild mannered and has such a sweet demeanor, I feel so blessed and lucky I found her! Thanks to Premier Pups and staff for making my experience with you a great one! I would without a doubt, refer your company and use you again in the future however, right now, my hands and heart are full with two!
