  • Overview

  • The Dorkie is an affectionate and easygoing hybrid developed by crossbreeding the Yorkshire Terrier and the Dachshund. This small breed combines the intelligence and allergy-friendly qualities of the Yorkshire Terrier with the courageous and lively personality of the Dachshund. The Dorkie makes for a great family companion with both children and other pets. With early socialization and training, this breed will easily make new friends wherever they go. They are a lively and energetic breed but only require a moderate amount of exercise to stay mentally and physically stimulated. Most Dorkies often have a long body, and their height can depend on which parent breed they take after. They can have a short to long coat, but some can even have wirehair due to their Dachshund heritage.
