      About Chorkies

      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.
