Yorkie Chihuahua Mix

AKA Chorkie, Yorkiechi

A Yorkie Chihuahua mix, which is most commonly known as a Chorkie, is a very popular yorkie mix dog.

As mentioned on the yorkie mix page if people insist on buying chorkies from breeders, they will continue breeding these mutts.

There are already many 'designer dogs' available and you can look for a chihuahua yorkie mix at a yorkshire terrier rescue and adopt one.

Due to the small size of both the Chihuahua breed and yorkshire terrier dog this is a very small dog also and is a great lap dog! Due to their small size they might not be the best breed for very young children as they might not realise how easy it is to hurt them. They are fragile dogs.

They are very smart dogs and will be easy to train, however can be a little yappy. They will most likely be very vocal around strangers mostly due to their shyness and they are known to be wary or even scared around those they don’t know.

The chihuahua yorkie mix needs to be properly socialised to get used to strangers and other animals.

The chorkie is a very friendly and very loveable dog to have around!

A chorkie may come in a variety of different colours, it would all depend on its parents. Most chorkies have a black and brown coat as a puppy and then it may change colour to anything from grey, white, brown, black or tan.

The length and type of coat would also depend on whether the yorkie was crossed with a short haired Chihuahua or a long haired Chihuahua.
