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.

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! :)

Name: Minnie (formerly Nina)
Breed: Morkie
Client: Heather Sexton
Loc: North Ridgeville, Ohio

When our previous Morkie passed away, we were left with a huge hole in our hearts to fill. I began looking online, and stumbled across Premier Pups. I was hesitant at first because I wanted to make sure it was a legitimate business. I read reviews and also called Premier and asked a lot of questions. They were wonderful people to work with and they breed healthy and happy puppies!! Our little girl Minnie (formerly Nina) was born on 4/3/2020, which happens to be the day that our other Morkie passed away. It was definitely meant to be, and Minnie has transitioned into our home perfectly!! Premier called and checked up on Minnie and answered all of our questions! I have found our new puppy breeder! Will definitely be using Premier in the future! Thank you so much for making our family whole again!!

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!
