Is the Dachshund / Yorkshire Terrier Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Dorkie

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 Dorkie is a cross between the pure Dachshund and the pure Yorkshire Terrier, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of each breed in the mix. Like many other so-called designer dogs, this cross was developed to create a small, apartment-sized companion that is right for many families.

Appearance / health:
All mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, but the Dorkie is usually a small, longish dog that oozes plenty of "cute." Some Dorkies have one blue eye.

Behavior / temperament:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, and it can be especially challenging when the parent breeds are as different from each other as a hound and a terrier. Expect a moderately active little dog who wants to be a part of the family.
