  • 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.
