Shorkie Puppies for Sale Online | Shorkie Tzu Pups




The Shorkie Tzu is a small cross breed between the Yorkshire Terrier and the Shih Tzu. It is known for being very affectionate, friendly, energetic, and loving. Otherwise known as Yorkie Tzu, shorkies definitely inherited the best qualities of both parents and are widely sought after in the US. Their history is uncertain but there is a possibility that they may have naturally existed over the years. However, breeders in the US started breeding them intentionally in the early 2000s. They started out as designer breeds, but some of them have ended up in many shelters over the years. Shorkies are great as apartment dogs and they are more suited for single or elderly owners. They can also adapt to family living but will need some socialization exercises to get them comfortable. They have a loud personality and can be quite yappy. If you want a small-sized puppy that can also double as a watchdog, then you will hit the jackpot with a Shorkie. The most common colors for Shorkies are black and tan, brown and golden. Note: Due to their big personalities, they are quite active and need regular exercise to use up all that natural energy. They also appreciate games but are not quite easy to train.

Breed: Shorkie
Client: Kristie Scalzi
Loc: Connecticut

Our dog was aging at the time, we didn’t expect to get another dog. But, we thought maybe getting a puppy would help lighten our aging dogs spirits. We found Penny (aka Amber) and decided what a great addition she would be to our family. So we flew her to Connecticut, she’s been a joy ever since we got her! Thanks Premier Pups!! We can’t imagine Penny not being apart of our family!

Name: Chewbacca "Chewie" (formerly Stevo)
Breed: Shorkie
Client: Val Ely
Loc: Columbus, OH

Chewie is the best thing to happen to our family for a long time. He's a little firecracker at times, but we love his little spazzy fits when he can't wait for you to get him out of his crate. We did the Pup-Pee-Poo Palace training with him and he was using the pad and going outside regularly within 1-2 weeks. He has only had a couple of accidents in our home which I'm so surprised about. He's such a smart dog. We can tell that he was well bred and well taken care of and basically well primed for crate and outdoor potty training by the people at Premier Pups. Our entire experience working with them was lovely. Very friendly, helpful and answered lots of questions. They sent us with everything we could have needed for bringing a new puppy home. Our first dog was a rescue who ended up being very sick and we lost her to a blood disorder. I was very pleased to hear that Premier Pups offers a super Premier warranty that also comes with online vet help with any questions about your pet, when you need it. My daughter was devastated when we lost our first dog to that illness and when we brought Chewie home, our daughter was ecstatic. The only downside is that we couldn't afford two dogs at once because Chewie is such a playful guy, we can tell he really wants a playmate. We will be looking into getting another puppy from PP VERY soon! I have referred probably a dozen or more people to this website because I am so pleased with every part of our experience. You will not go wrong by purchasing a pup for you or your family from this site. They are fantastic!

Client: Stephanie Hahn
Loc: Huntington, Indiana

I was very skeptical at first, going through an online site. But I am glad that I did. Looking through the pictures I fell in LOVE with Archie. (He totally looks like an Archie so we decided to keep the name however we call him Archibald The Great, Archie for short). We ended up making a four hour drive to pick him up. He was the cutest thing ever. I got him on the 10th of May, I'm writing this on the 16th of May and he has adjusted well. He is a spunky little pup. Perfect health. Absolutely ADORABLE!!!!! I'm am so glad I chose Premier Pups. The facility was VERY clean and the staff that helped us was very polite. I 100% recommend them to everybody.
