The chorkie is a cross between a Chihuahua and a Yorkshire Terrier. As a hybrid dog breed, chorkies will have favorable traits of both parent breeds. Not all chorkies will inherit equal traits from each of their parents. Its possible to have chorkies display more physical characteristics of a chihuahua and behavioral characteristics of a Yorkshire terrier or vice versa. This can cause behavior and/or physical variation between chorkie dogs, even if from the same litter, which prevents the breed from meeting the requirements necessary to be considered a purebred dog breed.
