Is the Cairn Terrier / Yorkshire Terrier Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Carkie

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Carkie is a cross between a pure Cairn Terrier and a pure Yorkshire Terrier, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. Despite the designer name, this mix isn't performed very often, perhaps to preserve the special characters of the parent breeds.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the Carkie is going to be a small Terrier type.

Behavior / temperament:
You're getting a double dose of the Terrier personality, so know how to socialize and train dogs that can be independent and a little stubborn. They seem to know they're cute, and they may try to work on you to get their way. A well-socialized Cairn Terrier / Yorkshire Terrier Mix will be a devoted companion who loves attention.
