The "Chorkie" is a cross between a purebred Chihuahua and a purebred Yorkshire terrier. When you cross two or more breeds of dogs together, you get a mix-matched dog that could have health problems from only one breed it has in it, or multiple health issues from multiple breeds. It all depends on the dog. In general, you should do your research on the health problems of both breeds. Such, the Yorkshire terrier's most common health issues are bronchitis, lymphangiectasia, portosystemic shunt, cataracts, and keratitis sicca. As well as teeth and digestive issues such as diarrhea and vomiting because of a sensitive stomach are very common in the Yorkie breed. Hypoglycemia is rare but found in the Yorkshire Terrier breed because of bad breed practices.
The Chihuahua's common health issues include epilepsy and seizure disorders, teeth problems, hypoglycemia, eye infections, collapsed trachea, chronic bronchitis, and are prone to being overweight. The right diet and enough exercise a day will help decrease the likely-hood of some of the issues stated above. The Chihuahua and Yorkshire terrier should get an hour of exercise a day split into two-three walks throughout the day. So the Chorkie should get the same. Both the Chihuahua and The Yorkie are considered to be mildly hard to train, but going to a positive reinforcement trainer will give you the tools you need to teach your Chorkie good manners. The Chihuahua and the Yorkshire terrier can live in almost any home environment, but their owner's must understand that being a small-breed dog, they need special stairs and ramps to get up and down on/off furniture. As a jump from that height can easily injure them, especially at a young age. Good luck with your Chorkie puppy!
