Top 17 Yorkshire Terrier Mixes:

1. Torkie (Yorkshire Terrier x Toy Fox Terrier)

The Torkie is a courageous dog that won’t get any taller than 9 inches. They have plenty of energy and will spend plenty of time running around your home, but when they get their fill, you will likely find them cuddling up on your lap to watch television. They develop strong bonds with the family but don’t like roughhousing, so they might get aggressive toward children if they aren’t cautious.

2. Yorkieton (Yorkshire Terrier x Coton de Tulear)

The Yorkieton is created by mixing the Yorkshire Terrier and the Coton de Tulear, another small dog that many people like because of their cotton-like coat. The Yorkieton is an affectionate dog that loves to please their owner and sheds very little, so they’re perfect for people that are sensitive to dog fur. They’re highly intelligent and can learn a long list of commands, and they don’t require too much exercise, so they’re well suited to apartment life.

3. Yorkeltie (Yorkshire Terrier x Sheltie)

The Yorkeltie is a smart and playful dog that quickly makes themselves at home. They’re extremely obedient and will always follow orders once trained without fail. They rarely act stubborn, and they get along well with children and are quite affectionate toward them. They’re alert and curious, so they make a great watchdog, but they don’t bark more than is necessary.

4. Boston Yorkie (Yorkshire Terrier x Boston Terrier)

The Boston Yorkie is an attractive dog with a courageous facial expression. They’re extremely loyal and will protect family members with their tiny life. They’re quick learners that like to be the center of attention, so they will encourage you to teach them another trick to earn a teat and a pat on the head. They enjoy children but not roughhousing, so avoid keeping your dog near a toddler that might pull their hair.

5. Yorkie Russell (Yorkshire Terrier x Jack Russell Terrier)

The Yorkie Russell can also be called a Jorky. They can grow to almost 15 inches tall and have plenty of energy for games and other activities. They’re affectionate but love to be the center of attention and can start to misbehave if left alone too long and could begin to chew furniture, clothing, and even walls. However, they’re perfect for someone with plenty of time to devote to their pet.

6. Carkie (Yorkshire Terrier x Cairn Terrier)

The Carkie is an extremely intelligent mixed breed that you might as describe as courageous. They’re highly adaptable and are just as happy living in a small apartment as a large farmhouse. They make a great companion and are relatively healthy with very few problems that require a vet’s attention. Children can help with the high energy levels that allow this breed to play all day long.

7. Affenshire (Yorkshire Terrier x Affenpischer)

The Affenshire is an interesting mix that results in one of the most comical dogs you can find. You’ll spend plenty of time amazed and amused at the lengths this breed will go to to get your attention. However, they can be quite temperamental as well, throwing large tantrums when they don’t get what they want, which is almost always your undivided attention.

8. Griffonshire (Yorkshire Terrier x Brussels Griffon)

The Griffonshire is another attractive mix with huge butterfly ears that can be a hit with children, but they must take care not to pull them because this dog doesn’t like roughhousing. They’re a great cuddling breed, and you will usually find them sitting on a family member’s lap or snuggling up for a nap. They require a lot of attention, so it’s not a great choice if you spend a lot of time away from home.

9. Snorkie (Yorkshire Terrier x Mini Schnauzer)

The Snorkie has a cute face with big floppy ears. They’re extremely affectionate, which makes it nearly impossible to be in a bad mood around them. They enjoy playing games or sitting at your feet and are quite friendly and able to make fast friends with strange humans or animals.

10. Yorktese (Yorkshire Terrier x Maltese)

Some people might call the Yorktese a Morkie, but either way, these floppy-eared dogs have a happy temperament that’s always ready for a game of anything. They also like to walk and are well-behaved without pulling or barking at other dogs. Early socialization will help them get along better with children.

11. Dorkie (Yorkshire Terrier x Daschund)

The Dorkie usually stands less than 7 inches tall and has short legs with the longer hair of the Yorkshire Terrier. They enjoy being around family members but are better kept away from small children due to their short legs allowing them to get hurt more easily. They enjoy following you around the house and will usually remain only a few feet from you or another family member at all times.

12. Corkie (Yorkshire Terrier x Cocker Spaniel)

The Corkie is a small and fuzzy dog that doesn’t mind roughhousing the way most other dogs do, making them a great first pet for a small child. They also tend to be more independent than other Yorkshire Terrier mixes and will often spend the day wandering around unless someone calls them. They’re smart but can be difficult to train due to stubbornness.

13. Yorkillon (Yorkshire Terrier x Papillon)

The Yorkillon is one of the smaller mixed breeds on this list, but they still have plenty of personality and will likely shock you with their sassy behavior. They love to argue but will also stay by your side as you move throughout the house and will often sit on your lap if you are on the couch. They’re smart and can learn new tricks quickly once you learn how to keep them focused.

14. Yorkie Apso (Yorkshire Terrier x Lhasa Apso)

The Yorkie Apso is one of the most adaptable dogs on this list and is happy living in a large or small home. They’re intelligent, confidant, and vigilant. They watch over your home with a keen eye and will let you know if something isn’t right without a lot of barking, choosing to bark when they want your attention.

15. Skorkie (Yorkshire Terrier x Scottish Terrier)

The Skorkie is one of the more unusual-looking mixes on our list so far. They have large ears with an almost old-man-like expression on their face. These dogs don’t need a lot of exercise, but they will require mental stimulation. You can stimulate your pet’s mind by teaching them new tricks or having them complete food puzzles. Without enough mental stimulation, your dog may begin to misbehave.

16. Fourche Terrier (Yorkshire Terrier x Westie)

The Fourche Terrier is an attractive breed with large, triangular, upright ears. They’re extremely active and love to get attention by clowning around and acting silly. However, they will require a bit more exercise than most of the other breeds on this list, so you should expect to take daily walks to help your pet burn off excess energy, so they don’t get too barky at night.

17. Ratshire Terrier (Yorkshire Terrier x Rat Terrier)

The Ratshire Terrier is a small dog with a serious face. If needed, they excel at ratting but will be just as happy running around a large yard. They have a high energy level but don’t like rough play, so they aren’t well suited for small children. They’re usually an obedient breed that is well-behaved but can occasionally get in a stubborn streak if they aren’t getting enough attention or mental stimulation.

As you can see, there is a large selection of mixed breeds created from the Yorkshire Terrier, and they create new ones every day. Some aren’t too popular, so you might not see them again, while others like the Skorkie are so popular that some kennels already recognize it as a stand-alone breed. If you are looking for a pet for your home, we recommend the Skorkie, but there are many other fantastic breeds as well that make fantastic companions and pets.

We hope you have enjoyed reading over this list and found a few breeds interesting. If we have helped you choose your next pet, please share this list of Yorkshire Terrier mixes on Facebook and Twitter.
