The Chorkie is a cute and confident cross breed. A Yorkie Chihuahua mix, this little dog will weigh up to 10 lbs and be no more than 9 inches tall.

Energetic, inquisitive and loyal, the combination of Yorkshire Terrier and Chihuahua temperaments is sure to make an impression.

Both parent breeds are generally long lived and it is reasonable to assume your Yorkie Chihuahua Mix will also have a good life expectancy.

However, there are a few health issues you should be aware of.

Appearance can tend to lean toward one parent breed or a blend of both with mixed breed dogs.

Pups in the same litter can even look quite different, with one boasting a silky, long coat like a typical Yorkie, while another has the shorter, coarser coat of a short-haired Chihuahua.

Yorkie Chihuahua mixes are generally tiny dogs that range from 6 to 10 pounds in weight, and 6 to 9 inches in height.

Their appearance will vary depending on the traits inherited from each breed parent.

However, it is hard to say for certain how many Chorkies have the round, dome-like Chihuahua head and a rectangular shaped body with short legs.

Overall, Chorkie owners report that Chorkies are delightfully outgoing, cheerful, affectionate, and playful dogs. They are active and energetic and eager to be with their families.
