Like other cross-breeds, the Chorkie’s coat, colour, size, weight, and overall appearance are difficult to predict. In fact, it is natural for puppies of the same litter to look very different. Some will be tall and long-legged, whilst others would be shorter and solid. Generally, the Chorkie will have an athletic look, which is a common trait of the Chihuahua and the Yorkie. It stands 15–22 centimetres and weighs 7–10 pounds.
The coat of the Chorkie, which is usually low-shedding, can be long or short and straight or fluffy, depending on which parent breed it inherits it from; it can also be a combination. The common colours are black, grey, white, brown, dark brown, chocolate, merle, red, tan, or a combination of these colours.
Grooming a Chorkie is a breeze as it usually requires regular brushing to remove mats and tangles. It does not need frequent baths and its coat is kept in its natural state. It is important to brush its teeth three times a week since small dogs are prone to dental problems. Dental chews will also be a fun way to remove tartar build-up. The Chorkie’s ears should also be cleaned to avoid wax build-up and infections. To complete its grooming routine, trim its nails and inspect its skin for abnormal bumps and parasites.
