    My Dorkie, Phoenix is my problem child. He is 18 months. He looks like a Doxie except he has long legs and weighs healthy 30 lbs. No dog toy lasts long. We have bark box upgraded for distructve dogs…demolished as is my couch. He gets aggressive if any one comes near me as my Yorkie. I heard the Yokie and mix is a one person dog. Phoenix gets aggressive with anyone that comes to the door with no stopping barking. He is a major kicker but is almost a motion detector if anyone gets up to go to the bathroom. He is selfish with food and toys plus a bully with my other dogs….he tried only once bullying my 250 lb Daniff.

    Anyone know how often a dorkie should be groomed? Or if their hair needs to be cut at all? My dorkie Toby is looking ratty and I think he has matted hair and I keep telling my mom that he needs to be groomed and all she says is “I’ll give him a bath” and “I have scissors”

    I rescued Buster, my Dorkie 4 years ago. He has the body of a Doxie and the coloring of a Yorkie with the terrier face, and he weighs 20 pounds. He’s 9 years old and loves to play like he’s much younger. He is affectionate and fiercely loyal and protective. He’s also a great lap dog and loves to travel in the car. Sometimes I wonder who really rescued who.

  7. Shelley says:

    10-12lbs 😂😂😂😂 we must grow them big because ours (who, yes we saw his mother and father) weighs 20 lbs.. he’s not overweight at all.. he’s just really big. He’s a very sweet and affectionate doggie and we love him ❤️

    My dorkie is hi energy healthy with her she eats very seldom but she weighs 12 pounds so she getting enough nourishment she burrows under
    Covers but she has to be between me and my wife she protects both of
    Us. She acts like she’s a big dog when other people or animals come around. She has has the agility of the Yorkie. But she has the feature of the
    Dashound except her legs are long and muscular jumps like a frog.

    I rescued a 2-year old Dorkie this summer. She’s a doll! She does have a licking issue with our clothing or blankets, I think its anxiety thing. I have a huge issue with the info on this page regarding feeding. There is no way these dogs should get 2-3 cups of food a day! Mine gets 1/4 cup twice a day and her weight is perfect! I do add some canned food and pumpkin at night because she has anal gland issues. We had a doxie/terrier mix growing up and I’m so happy to have another dog like this!

      Hi Karen,
      Small toy dog breeds like the Dorkie differ from the larger breeds in their nutritional requirements. Despite their small stature, toy dogs have higher metabolic rates and need more calories as compared to larger dogs. The dietary requirement may also vary among individuals of the same breed, depending on their age, size, and activity level. Therefore, consulting a vet for finding out the appropriate feeding and diet formulation of your Dorkie is recommended.

      • Nizh's Momma says:

        There is NO way my Dorkie girl Nizhoni (who just turned 1 in December)would ever consume 2 cups in a day. I’m lucky if my dainty girl eats 3/4 a cup a day. She weighs in at 4 3/4 lbs and her vet says she is perfectly healthy and just a dainty eater.

  14. Nancy says:

    I know that yorkies are prone to liver problems has anyone here had that problem with a Dorkie?

  15. Sue says:

    WE have a 8 month old Dorkie. We are having a very difficult time with his eating. I think he was taken from his mom too early as his behavior with excessive licking when he is trying to go to sleep and wanting you right next to him when he eats or will eat from your hand. We have switched foods but it isn’t helping. His weight is good…we’ve cut all treats. Any idea?

    • Gwen Mendoza says:

      My Dorkie also experienced the same. He also had a hard time in eating when he was 4 months old and was vomiting too after eating. I brought him to the vet so he could be seen. The Vet recommended vitamins like multivitamins to boost his appetite and advised me to give table foods occasionally but make sure that the food will not harm the dog. It also good if you give him milk and hydrating liquids that is prescribed by the Vet.

    • Terry says:

      My Dorkie is 4 and she still is an excessive licker. my mouth, ears, legs arms….I have to tell her firmly NO if she wants me to pet her when we head to bed. once she settles down under the blankets she calms down. I feed her dry Iams toy Breed which she loves, I was giving her Hills Science Diet for toy breeds but she prefers the Iams. I give her about 1/2 to 1/3 cup twice a day. She has her own small crate in my room with her water and food dish in it, she only goes in it to eat but she seems to feel safer eating in there rather than having her dish out in the room.

    • Kay says:

      I got a food ball from the pet store. You can put the puppy food into it and the puppy will happily chase it around and eat the food like a champ. She is a very finicky eater and currently eats Taste of the Wild High Prairie Puppy Formula in the food ball. I also feed her Taste of the Wild grain free canned food. She gets 1/2 of a can of that daily.

    Our Bella just had her litter of 4 a week ago. She is a miniature dachshund and the father is a teacup yorkie. We lost the runt earlier this week but the other 3 are quite healthy. Can’t wait till they open their eyes. I never had newborns before so quite excited.

        hi, I just got my Dorkie from a breeder in florida. Found her on facebook.

      • justine mcmahon says:

        Hi, I just got my baby Dorkie a few weeks ago so hes about 11 weeks old now. He is my first little dog since I have all German Shepherds. I feed my dogs a raw balanced diet and are raised holistically. My question to any raw feeders out there is there a specific supplement that these little Dorkies need? Thanks in advance.

  19. Libby says:

    We just adopted a 2yr old Dorkie male and he hates my husband. Won’t come near him and last night he growled at him when he walked in the room. I’m beside myself with worry that he will never warm up to my husband. What can I do? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Libby

    • Betsy Mahon says:

      It could be that the dog was abused by a male. My husband has a Yorkie she doesn’t like female’s. For that reason. Ask him to have patience. It took 2 years for her to warm up to me. I used food to help with the situation

    • Amy says:

      Have your husband give the dog treats whenever he enters the room. Make sure the treats you use are something a) the dog likes and b) are reserved only for this purpose and never given by anyone else.

    • Patricia Norwood says:

      I’m having same issue with mine. She is two. Loves women but does not like men. She will be okay one minute and then try eat him the next. I’m praying she will get better.
