Dorkie Photos

If you’ve never heard of them and want to see some Dorkie photos, we have you covered.

It makes sense that you may never have heard of the Dorkie. This isn’t a purebred dog at all, but a mix between two dogs — the Dachshund and the Yorkie.

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.

To truly understand this breed you can look at some of these photos of the dog from a puppy right through to a senior dog. Click on any of the links and you will discover some of the very best Instagram accounts to follow. As you will see from the photos this is a breed you will quickly fall in love with.
