Shorkie Breed Info

Temperament

  • Shorkies are playful, loving dogs that enjoy sitting on the laps of their owners and cuddling. Like many small dogs, shorkies are not afraid of strangers and enjoy meeting other dogs and people. Most shorkies are loyal and willing to please. However, some shorkies can suffer from "small dog" syndrome, where they feel they must dominate everyone and everything.

Behavior

  • While friendly and social, the shorkie can also be independent and spend time entertaining itself. Shorkies are a trainable breed, and do well with children and other animals. Shorkies are also good dogs for people living in cities because they don't require a large yard or lots of space to run.

Benefits

  • Shorkies are a good breed for people who are allergic to dogs. They do not shed hair or dander, making them hypoallergenic. Shorkies are also very adaptable to surroundings, fitting easily into most homes and family situations. Shorkies are also easy to train; but, according to the SCA, it is important to stick a routine when potty training.

Care

  • Shorkies with long hair constantly deal with tangles. If a shorkie’s coat is allowed to grow out, it must be groomed daily. Trimming the hair is much easier than daily grooming.
