Shorkies Puppies for Sale in Florida

A mix between a shih tzu and a Yorkshire terrier, the Shorkie is a small bundle of fur with a short snout and a cute round face that often resembles a tiny bear. Rarely growing to more than 15 pounds, the Shorkie stands between 6 and 14 inches tall and has a long coat that is somewhat hypoallergenic. As a result, these dogs require daily grooming to prevent their hair from becoming matted and tangled.

Breed Characteristics

Shorkies are extremely cute, but they require lots of attention to keep them happy. If you are someone who tends to constantly dote on your dog, the Shorkie is probably a good match. They’re energetic and playful, so daily exercise is important. They also tend to suffer from extreme bouts of separation anxiety when left alone, so they do best in families where someone can be home with them throughout the day.

Often the Shorkie is a little headstrong, so they may be harder to train than some other smaller breeds, but if you start early you can eliminate many bad behaviors before they start. If you’re looking for a small, cuddly pup that constantly wants to be by your side, the Shorkie is an excellent choice.
