The feisty offspring of a Yorkshire Terrier and a Chihuahua, the Chorkie is a diminutive pooch with a personality that is larger than life. Born with the attitude and temperament of a much larger dog, Chorkies don’t realize that they’re small.
Regardless of size, Chorkies are always adorable loyal, and eager to be the center of attention. Chorkie are unwavering in their loyalty to their family and are never far from their owners. Like the Yorkshire Terrier, these lovable lap dogs require frequent socialization and are seldom venture far from their owners
Chorkies do not need much exercise, and are easy enough to keep groomed, though housebreaking is often a challenge. Chorkies are smart, easily trainable, and make terrific watch dogs, but they also have a tendency to bark.
Due to their size and temperament, Chorkie puppies require special care, extra patience, and a lot of love. They are susceptible to physical injury and should always be handled with care.

A small, affectionate dog, the Yorkshire Terrier has been a popular breed all over the world for decades. They were originally “ratters” - bred to catch rats - for the working class of England, and were one of the first AKC registered breeds after their move to the United States in the late 1800s. These days, Yorkies are known for being independent and feisty at times, but they learn very quickly and are keen to be near their owners. Yorkies are small dogs, typically weighing in at an average of 5-7 pounds, and, although nobody can guarantee any dog is hypoallergenic, Yorkies are often referred to as hypoallergenic because they have human-like hair instead of fur.
The Silky Terrier is a confident, playful breed that was historically known to hunt snakes in Australia, its country of origin. While it is often mistaken for a Yorkshire Terrier, the Silky terrier is actually a cross between the Yorkie and the Australian Terrier. This smart, highly trainable breed is born with a shiny black coat that, over time, turns into a lovely blue color. Silky Terriers make wonderful companion animals and do well children. They are adaptable and can live in any size space.
Chihuahuas are the smallest dog breed in the world, and are one of the oldest as well. They are ideal lap dogs, with loving and sweet personalities. Chihuahuas tend to attach quickly and strongly to their owners, and do best with older children because of their delicate bone structure and small size. These loyal, sassy dogs come in two varieties (smooth coat and long coat), and typically have a medium energy level that is perfect for living in either a home or an apartment.
