If you are considering getting a Shorkie, you'll want to check out the incredible book "The Complete Guide to Shorkies". It's written in an easy-to-understand way but still has the expert knowledge to help any new owner successfully raise their Shorkie from puppy to old-age. It's widely available, so pick up a copy if you see one, or click here to grab one on Amazon.
The Shorkie is a cross between the Shih Tzu and the Yorkshire Terrier. The Shorkie is energetic and playful and loves to be around their families. They are a loyal breed and make excellent watchdogs – barking to alert their owners of approaching strangers. They make great playmates to children – though their small size can be problematic to younger children – as well as other dogs. Shorkie’s are intelligent but they can be stubborn, making training a bit difficult. Early and consistent training can help, though. They’re definitely happiest doing anything with their owners – whether that be going for a walk or just lounging around. This dedicated and loving breed makes a great companion for any family!
