What is a shorkie:
are a mix of Shih Tzu and Yorkie.
In our option the mom must always be the Shih Tzu
and the dad a yorkie. In our opinion with a
shorkie you get the BEST of both breeds.
What are F1 Shorkie Puppies:
There are many breeders out there that do what they
call a F1 shorkie puppy. Which means both mom and
dad is a purebred, so the shorkie puppies they have
are a first generation.
No matter if you are getting
a f1 puppies or a f2 (f2 means a shorkie bred to a shorkie)
you need to make sure you know what you are getting.
Some breeders even do what is known as a f1b That is
when a shorkie is breed back to a purebred. When
this is done the offspring is 3/4 of one breed, and
1/4 of the other breed.

test it should NEVER be bred.

it Bile acid testing should be done even if no other
How big are shorkie puppies:
Shorkie puppies can be as big as their parents or
even great grand parents. When a breeder has puppies they
need to know how big the whole 5 generation behind
the parents are in order to give you a correct size
for their puppy. Just because a Shih tzu mom is only
7lbs, and their yorkie dad is 3 lbs dose NOT mean
their shorkie puppies will be 3-7lbs..
There is always a
chance a puppy could take after their great grandma,
just like in humans. Remember the akc standard for a
Yorkie is 3-7lbs and the Shih Tzu is 9-16 lbs.
breeders do NOT guarantee size of a puppy. If you
have a breeder that says your puppy will be what
some call a teacup 1-3lbs or what other call an
imperial shorkie 4-6lbs get it in writing.
There are many breeders that use these terms just to
sale their normal size shorkie puppies.
