Help reduce the number of Shorkie puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

AnonymousHow big do Shorkie's get and are they good with kids?

The average weight for the Shih Tzu/Yorkshire Terrier cross is between 7-15 lb. The breed is known to do fine with children, but all interactions should be supervised, as the dog as a puppy and adult can easily be injured by children if not careful.

AnonymousShorkie My Shorkie pants when he rides in the car. We are planning on a car trip. What can I do for him to make the trip easier for him? He does not pant when we fly.

Unless your dog is hot, the panting is most likely a sign of anxiety for your dog. This is something you are going to need to discuss with your vet. He/She will be able to turn you to a Positive Reinforcement trainer to be able to work with your dog on his anxiety when in a vehicle, or he/she will be able to give you medication to give to your dog to help him be calm when in the vehicle. But none-the-less, you should take him to the vet for a once-over to make sure there isn't anything wrong. The movement of the car could be hurting him someway and the panting is his way of telling you something is wrong.
