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.

I drove over 8 hours from Maryland to Ohio to pick Harley up for the first time 8 years ago, and to say it was the best decision of my life would be an understatement.  He is the very best thing to ever happen to me, the love of my life, my best friend, and I simply could not imagine life without him.. I can't begin to thank afforable pups for bringing him into my life.

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.

Client: Elizabeth Kriegel
Loc: Philadelphia, PA

I would like to thank Premier Pups for everything that they have done for us. Our puppy Dee (now Harley) is a great little puppy. Premier Pups have contacted me a few times to see how Dee was doing. Dee was only 1.5 lbs when we got her on 6 November 2017 she is now 2.1 lbs. I've already taken her to my vet and was informed that she is a very healthy puppy. This is the second puppy that my family has gotten from Premier Pups - my daughter and her family got a Tedding Bear from Premier in June 2017 and he is also a very healthy puppy I want to especially thank Kacee for asking all my texts and emails. She was always professional and never seemed to mind answering all my questions. Keep up the good work Premier Pups -

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 ??

Thank you Premier for giving us such a special pup. Picked up (Ellen), now Stella on 9/2/17. She has adjusted wonderfully. Her training has been amazing with no indoor accidents at all. She is a sweet love bug! I would recommend Premier Pups to anyone as they really care about their puppies. I had some questions and when I called anyone I spoke to was glad to offer their assistance and guidance. Premier has called several times to check up on us and Stella is off to a wonderful start and is loved by everyone she has come to meet. Everyone asks where we got her and I am more than happy to share that we went to Ohio to pick her up and she was so worth the trip! Thank you Premier Pups!
