The Chorkie is a mixed breed dog–a cross between the Chihuahua and Yorkshire Terrier dog breeds. Playful, devoted, and outgoing, these small pups inherited some of the best traits from both of their parents.

These adorable pups make excellent apartment dogs for active singles, and they’re also a nice match for large families. Chorkies tend to be hypoallergenic with a low shed coat; though, it’s tough to say for sure.Most weigh in at 8 to 15 pounds and range in height from six to nine inches at the shoulder. That said, some can be smaller or larger than average.

Many Chorkie lovers describe their dogs as outgoing, fun, silly, and extremely loyal companions
