Annual cost of owning a Chorkie puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Chorkies true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

How can you tell what a Chorkie will weigh when full grown?

1 Comment


There is no way to tell what a mixed breed dog will weigh when he/she is full grown. You must look at the breeds he/she is mixed with and take an estimated guess. The Chihuahua weighs in at between 3 - 6lbs, while the Yorkshire Terrier weighs in at 5 - 7lbs, but some have been known to weigh up to 15lbs. Looking at the dogs in the puppy's linage will give you a better idea as to how big the dog could be when full grown. Taking both breeds into consideration, the dog should mature at anywhere between 4 - 6lbs on average, but again could be smaller or larger depending on the dam and sire of the puppy; as well as the grand-dam and grand-sire.

Anonymous asked:
Should Chorkies have their tails docked?



Unless the dog is of purebred lineage and going to be shown in confirmation competitions then no dog needs to have their tail docked.


The Chorkie is a mixed breed dog of a Chihuahua and a Yorkshire Terrier. They are not a register-able breed of dog and so cannot be shown. The dog should not have its tail docked unless there is a medical reason for it.

Anonymous asked:
Are Chorkies easy to train? Also do they have any health issues? What type of environment can they live in?



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!


I have a Chorkie who will soon turn 9 years old. I know what they have said above is what the two breed’s problems can be. My Chorkie is less than 6 lbs and her only problem is her hip but after taking her daily Glucosamine blend, these days she is as playful as a little puppy! I have the stairs for the bed and she learned that as a tiny puppy. One problem you can run into is low blood sugar. I keep pineapple with me and give her some if she runs into that problem. There is also a substance you can get from the Vet that is in a tube and is like syrup with electrolytes in it. As far as training goes Chorkie’s can have a stubborn streak so once you know about this and realize how smart they are you can circumvent the stubbornness. She was really easy for me to train with everything. I would show her and help her to do the task then ask her to do it. When she didn’t do as told I would wait and show her again. Then when she would do it I would reward her. It only took me once or twice with everything and as I taught her more it would usually be only once. She is so tiny but she is a bed hog and is so cute and funny. Some Chorkie’s can do a lot of barking but mine rarely barks at all. She absolutely loves children. She can be excited and play and she also is a mellow lap dog. She loves to travel and I bought her a special dog chair for the car so she can look out and also be safe. We have traveled across country many times. They are an indoor pet that thrives on love.


We had one for 14 years...about 9-10 lbs. Glucosamine treats daily are a must with leg problems and bed steps are a must. Very smart but stubborn and very one person orientated but dedicated. Traveled extensively without problem but you really cant leave her alone or becomes spiteful including defecating on will
