How much do Shorkie puppies cost?

The cost to buy a Shorkie varies greatly and depends on many factors such as the breeders' location, reputation, litter size, lineage of the puppy, breed popularity (supply and demand), training, socialization efforts, breed lines and much more. Review how much Shorkie puppies for sale sell for below.

The current median price for all Shorkies sold is $1,237.50. This is the price you can expect to budget for a Shorkie with papers but without breeding rights nor show quality. Expect to pay less for a puppy without papers, however, we do not recommend buying a puppy without papers.

Annual cost of owning a Shorkie 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 Shorkies 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.

What is a Shorkie?

1 Comment


The Shorkie is a mixed breed dog between the Yorkshire Terrier and the Shih Tzu breeds.

Anonymous asked:
How much should I sell my Shorkie pups for? My Yorkie is about to give birth and we will be selling the pups if everything is ok. I wanted her to have 1 litter of pups before getting her neutered.

1 Comment


Since your puppies are a mixed breed dog, you should sell your puppies for an average of what each puppy will cost you (ie. vet visits and food) divided by each puppy. So an average of $200 - $350 per puppy will let you re-coop your expenses and show you that the people wanting to take a puppy are serious.

Anonymous asked:
How big do Shorkies get and are they good with kids?

1 Comment


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.

Anonymous asked:
Do Shorkies shed?



Yes, the mixed breed of dog called Shorkie (AKA: Shih Tzu/Yorkshire Terrier) do shed, however, they do not shed a lot compared to their pure-bred counterparts.


I have a black/tan shorkie, he sat on my lap for 2 hours while I wore white capris and there was no hair on me! I have had him for about a year now and noticed almost zero sending.

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

1 Comment


Unless your Shorkie 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.
