If you’ve never heard of them and want to see some Dorkie photos, we have you covered.
There’s nothing wrong with getting a mixed breed dog and, in fact, there can be many great things about having one. When looking for a crossbreed, however, there are some things to be aware of. Unethical breeders love to mix dog breeds because they don’t require AKC papers, or certification from any legitimate registry at all. This makes it easier to pose as a good breeder. The parents often aren’t health-tested, so you could end up with some real health issues fast. They may also have some breeds thrown in there you weren’t aware of, which can affect temperament.
If you do find a legitimate Dorkie, however, these are great dogs! They’ll be very small and may have the long body of a Dachshund, though the Yorkie side of them will improve their potentially bad back.
A Friendly Dog
They should be very affectionate dogs who don’t have much of an issue with strangers. To live up to this full potential, however, you should make sure you start training and socialization early. This is true of any dog. Only ever use positive reinforcement when training your pup, as this will keep your relationship with them strong.
