Because Chorkies are a cross between two pure breeds, there is never any real guarantee of how puppies will turn out. As such, these charming little dogs come in all shapes, sizes and colours. Some dogs are long-legged and rangy, whereas others are shorter and more compact. However, as a rule of thumb most Chorkies boast having an athletic look about them, a trait that both the Yorkie and the Chihuahua boast having.
When it comes to their coat, the Chorkie can have a fluffy or straight coat with the one consistency being they are considered to be low-shedding little dogs. They can also boast having many different coat colours, but the more commonly seen ones are as follows:
- Black and brown
- Dark Brown
It is worth noting that a Chorkie’s coat changes colour as they age with some dog’s coats changing colour with the different seasons.
When Chorkies move, they do so with a jaunty, bouncy and energetic gait. They are always on the alert and quick to move when needed.
Prospective Chorkie owners should be wary of any puppies or dogs that show any sort of exaggeration whether in their looks or conformation and that extra-small Chorkies often come with many health issues so they are best avoided. A responsible breeder would always ensure that puppies they produce are of a good size and conformation and would avoid breeding extra small dogs for these reasons. Males should have both testicles fully descended into their scrotums.
