We consider the fuzzification of the notion of a positive implicative ordered filter in implicative semigroups. We show that every fuzzy positive implicative ordered filter is both a fuzzy ordered filter and a fuzzy implicative ordered filter. We give examples that a fuzzy (implicative) ordered filter may not be a fuzzy positive implicative ordered filter. We also state equivalent conditions of fuzzy positive implicative ordered filters. Finally, we establish an extension property for fuzzy positive implicative ordered filters.
