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 Maryland?

We have good news for Maryland’s dog lovers – the state ranks fairly well overall for pet-friendliness. Maryland is especially strong when it comes to protective laws for animals, which we love to see.


In the study by Pawsafe, a great source for tracking pet safety, Maryland ranked as the 22nd most pet-friendly state. The state also ranked 6th in terms of pet services available. The ranking was determined by adding up boutiques and supplies, boarding and daycare facilities, pet sitters, and veterinarians. It was also 6th for dog trails per capita. Of the 988 parks in the state, 655 are dog-friendly. Maryland is clearly a great place for adventurous pups


Safewise conducted a similar study and ranked Maryland as the 15th most pet-friendly state. In the study, the state receives strong marks for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards. However, Safewise did find the state to have a very low amount of pet-friendly rentals, with just 27% of rentals accepting dogs and cats.

Is Baltimore a pet-friendly city?

Baltimore is the largest city in Maryland and the state’s economic center. A study by Wallethub found that Baltimore was the 13th least pet-friendly city. It ranked 53rd for outdoor pet-friendliness, 62nd for pet budget, and 87th for pet health and wellness.


A Trust for Public Land (TPL) study reviews the nation’s 100 largest cities to see which has the most dog parks. In the study, Baltimore is ranked 78th with 0.5 parks per 100,000 residents. There are three total dog parks in the city.


Of course, plenty of Baltimore residents have wonderful happy lives with their dogs. But a few of the perks you can find in other cities just aren’t there.

A few more statistics for Maryland’s dog lovers

Only 30% of Maryland residents own a dog. This is well below the national average of 40%. 


According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Georgia are loving family breeds: Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers. In Baltimore, the most popular breeds are Jack Russell Terriers, Beagles, Pugs, Labradoodles, and Goldens.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Maryland

Maryland saved 44,282 dogs and cats during 2020. This is 3,553 more animals than in 2019. Approximately 5,619 were killed in the past year. Out of 40 animal shelters, only 15 have a no-kill policy. The overall save rate for the state is 79.5%. This is one of the lowest rates in the country. We like to see Maryland moving in the right direction, but there’s quite a way to go yet.
