    My little Dorkire named Sage is abou 3 1/2 months. I was wondering if you all have any home remedies for those white spaghetti worms? I have given him raw garlic but I have seen 1 or 2 even after the garlic treatment. Help!

    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.

        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.

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

    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?

      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.

      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.

      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.

  10. 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

      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.
