The Dorkie is a hairy hound – a blend between a Yorkshire Terrier and a Dachshund. They may be a smaller breed, but they come with a big personality as is befitting their headstrong parents. As for the Dorkie’s appearance, their Yorkie parentage is more obvious, with their coats often taking on the familiar black and tan. However, their comparatively longer back and shorter legs serve as a reminder that they also have Dachshund in them.
A well-socialized Dorkie makes for a charming canine companion. But, as a breed, they are prepared to stand up for themselves. If threatened or treated with a lack of respect, they may snarl or snap. For this reason, as with all dogs, Dorkies may not do well around small children, they can act unpredictably when taken by surprise and should be supervised around kids.
