Shorkie Puppies for Sale in Ohio

A designer crossbreed between a shih-tzu and Yorkshire terrier, the shorkie has big dog personality in a little dog’s body. They usually grow to be about 6 to 14 inches tall and 7 to 15 pounds and their coat texture, length and color varies widely depending on the parents. These dogs are not considered nonshedders and do need regular grooming to keep their coats tangle-free and to manage shedding.

Breed Characteristics

While they may not have a lot of bite behind that bark, shorkies are considered excellent watchdogs and will bark to let their owners know if someone comes to the house — or walks by — even if it’s someone they’ve met before. They are smart dogs that learn tricks quickly, but since both the Yorkie and shih-tzu breeds can have a stubborn streak, shorkies need owners who can be firm but gentle with training. They have a moderate activity level that helps them adapt to just about any household. They can get their exercise needs met with access to a fenced-in yard or a 30-minute walk daily, and they also enjoy snuggling with their owners for an afternoon nap.
