Overview - Chorkie
Chorkies are without a doubt one of the cutest breeds of designer dogs available to the modern dog owner. A relatively new breed created in the early 1990s, a Chorkie is the result of a crossing between a Yorkshire Terrier and a Chihuahua.
As with most mixed breed dogs, the Chorkie’s physical appearance can sometimes have subtle variances depending on the genetic contribution of both parents. However, like their parents, they are extremely small, toy-sized dogs and make excellent indoor pets. Chorkies generally retain the long, silky hair of the Yorkshire terriers and the head shape of the Chihuahua. Their ears are generally pointed like the Chihuahua’s, but can sometimes be droopy. Unlike Yorkshire terriers which are usually tan, grey and black in color, Chorkies can come in a variety of colors due to their Chihuahua genetics.
Training - Chorkie
Like Yorkshire Terriers and Chihuahuas, Chorkies are extremely intelligent and are highly trainable. They can however be stubborn when not provided with calm and assertive leadership. Since they are primarily an indoor breed, housebreaking should be taught early on.
