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 Nebraska?

While some studies are inconsistent, Nebraska generally ranks very well for pet-friendliness. It’s a great place to own a dog and has some great laws protecting animals. 


We use two primary studies to track a state’s friendliness for pets. One ranks Nebraska in the top ten, and the other in the top 25. 


The first study comes from an animal advocacy group, Pawsafe. They ranked Nebraska 9th compared to all 50 states, according to factors like pet services, pet-friendly accommodations, and more. The state also scored well in its report for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


The second study comes from the safety review site Safewise. They ranked Nebraska as the 23rd most pet-friendly state in the country. Still in the top half, but not quite top ten.


However, if we combine the two studies, Nebraska still ranks at the front of the list!
