The Shorkie is a cross between a Yorkshire Terrier and a Shih Tzu. This tiny dog has no idea how small it is, as it certainly has the attitude and personality of a big dog! This mix is dedicated, loving and loyal and would make a wonderful addition to any home, including those living in apartments or families with children.
Because both the Shih Tzu and the Yorkie that make up the Shorkie are non-shedding dogs, the breed makes a good choice for people with allergies.
The Shorkie has been popular for its bred characteristics of playfulness and a gentle, loving nature.
