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 North Dakota?

We’ve found that different studies rank North Dakota quite differently on dog-friendly factors. The state does a great job with some aspects of pet accommodations and services. The main area of improvement for North Dakota is in its animal welfare laws. Let’s look at two leading studies to understand the state’s rankings.


An animal welfare group called Pawsafe releases a ranking of all 50 states according to several pet-friendly factors. Pawsafe ranks North Dakota 45th of all the states. It’s a pretty tough ranking. As we mentioned the main issue is that North Dakota does not score well for laws against animal cruelty like pet abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Safewise conducts another study looking even more closely at safety for pets and their human friends. They actually give North Dakota a much better ranking, listing the state as the 21st most pet-friendly in the country. 


If we take the two studies together, North Dakota still ranks somewhere in the middle compared to other states.
