Borkie Characteristics

The Borkie is a hybrid breed mixture between a Beagle and a Yorkshire Terrier. These dogs maintain the best features from the two breeds, resulting in a smart family companion with a lot of love to share. Borkies have a strong desire to please and are very open to obedience training and quick learners.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Responsive

Combining two already popular purebreds into one is almost always a sure-fire hit, and the Borkie is no exception. These dogs are a lot of fun to be around and return all the love they receive ten-fold. They have a lot of energy, so be sure to provide them with ample exercise to prevent acting out or escape attempts. Because of their social personalities, these dogs don't typically make great watchdogs.  
 
Standing around 12-14 inches and weighing between 20-25 pounds, the Borkie is small and fits well in apartments and small spaces.  The Borkie is often seen with a brown, black, or white coat. 
 
Borkies are wonderfully loyal and protective of their families. With socialization, they’ll become less territorial with other animals, as well. They love to interact and are known for their signature howl, just like their parent, the Beagle. 
 
Make sure to take them to the vet regularly and have their teeth checked. Like other smaller dogs, they can be prone to some dental issues. Overall, Borkies are active, loyal, and devoted companions. 
 

How dog-friendly is Louisiana?

Louisiana is a wonderful state for dogs and their humans to live and travel! The state ranks consistently higher than its neighbor, Mississippi, as well. 


A few regular studies help us rank the 50 states by pet-friendliness. Two reputable studies rank all 50 states according to factors like animal cruelty laws, pet services, pet-friendly living, dog parks, hiking trails, and more. 


The first study comes from the animal advocacy group Pawsafe. They rank Louisiana as the 24th most pet-friendly state. The state also scored well for its animal welfare laws related to pet abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


The second study comes from the safety review site Safewise. THey ranked Louisiana a little bit higher, as the 18th most pet-friendly state in the country. 


Overall, these two rankings set Louisiana in a solid, healthy spot for pet-friendliness.

Are cities in Louisiana pet-friendly?

We also keep an eye on a study by Wallethub that reviews the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness. 

New Orleans

New Orleans is Louisiana’s biggest city with a population of nearly 400,000. Wallethub ranked New Orleans in the 10th spot overall out of 100! The city ranked 34th in pet budget and 10th in pet health and wellness, but slightly lower at 44th in outdoor pet-friendliness – mostly due to the heat and humidity. 


A Trust for Public Land (TPL) study ranked New Orleans 58th for dog parks compared to the 100 other largest cities. New Orleans has 0.8 dog parks per 100,000 people.


The top dog-friendly attractions in this very popular tourist destination are Ghost City Tours and Metairie Cemetery.
