Chihuahua Yorkshire Terrier Mix
Mexico meets England
Chihuahua Yorkshire Terrier mix dogs are a lovely combination of two very cute small breed dogs. They are also called Chorkie or Chorky, Yorkiehuahua and York-Chi or Yorkie-Chi.
Yorkshire Terriers originated in Yorkshire, Northern England and were not always miniature in size. They were originally bred for ratting in cotton and wool mills in the nineteenth century. Now they are popular companion dogs, small in size which makes them perfect for crossing with the tiny Chihuahua.
Chorkie coloring is commonly tan or tan and silver favouring the Yorkie but can be any color. As puppies they can start out dark then lighten with age. Their coats can range in length but are usually medium length and can be silky or slightly coarse.
Chorkies are small in size and make amazing little companions.
While it is not easy to predict the size, coat or temperament of a mixed breed dog, you can get a reasonable idea by finding out about the characteristics of both breeds.
With the new label 'Designer Dogs' making crosses very popular it is still very important you adopt a puppy from a responsible breeder or better still a rescue centre.
