The Shorkie is a cross between a Shih Tzu and a Yorkshire Terrier. Shorkies are very loving dogs and become attached to their companions. Shorkies are great family dogs, but are weary of small children as they, themselves are quite small. They usually have a long and silky coat! They are not very active dogs, but love to spend all the time they can with their companions! Shorkies are known to be non-shedding and hypoallergenic. They are easier to train than some breeds as they are very intelligent.
Our shorties usually weigh around 5-12lbs full grown.
