"Dorkie" - Dachshund Yorkie Hybrid
Description and Origin:
The Dorkie is not a purebred dog. It is considered a designer breed that's a cross between the Dachshund and the Yorkshire Terrier. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred.
Since a dorkie is a cross between the Dachshund and the Yorkshire Terrier it is impossible to determine their general temperament. That siad, you can see that their temperamnt would be a combination of the two types of dogs, depending on if the hybrid is truly 50% of each purebred.
Dorkie's are expected to live anywhere from 12-15 years.
