      About Shorkies

      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.

      Did You Know?

      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.

      Origin

      The Shorkie has been popular for its bred characteristics of playfulness and a gentle, loving nature.
