Norcal Pups Hours of  Operation

Nolan & Charlie Teddy Bear

Nolan & Charlie

We adopted Nolan and Charlie this past weekend and we couldn't be happier with our decision!! Daniel and Doug were remarkable throughout the process and it was obvious to us that the pups came from a family oriented environment where the early foundation for potty training and socialization had already been instilled. We appreciated the consistent communication and seamless adoption process. And of course we are most grateful and elated about our newest family members!! Thank you!!

Generally, a Shorkie puppy weighs between 7 and 15 pounds and reaches a height between 6-11 inches. 

About the Shorkie puppies temperament and lifestyle

        Shorkies are very loving dogs, which quickly become attached to their owners. They can suffer from separation anxiety if they are left alone for long periods of time. This can lead to excessive barking and destructiveness. The Shorkie puppy is active and playful, he enjoys playing ball or fetch. He best fits to the apartement lifestyle and he doesn’t need a lot of exercise. He needs several walks every day. A playtime in a fenced backyard will make him very happy.  The Shorkies are not difficult to train, but they need a consistent, firm and gentle training. Sometimes, these puppies are difficult to housebreak.  Read more about this puppy breed here.

Feeding and carrying a Shorkie puppy

        The Shorkie’s coat requires a daily brushing to prevent tangles and a bathing every month to remove dirt or unpleasant smell. It is good to trim your Shorkie at every 6 weeks. Like any other puppy, he needs nails cutting, ears cleaning and teeth brushing, to prevent dental diseases and the premature loss of teeth.    

         The dental problems can be avoided by feeding him a healthy, well-balanced and high-quality diet. He needs a food specifically formulated for small dogs that are very active. Dry food is essential for his oral hygiene. 

Shorkie health problems

        The Shorkies are prone to dental diseases, kidney stones, liver diseases, patellar luxation and others that can be inherited in either or both of their parents. If you want to adopt a Shorkie puppy without genetic disorders, choose a licensed breeder, who use only perfectly healthy specimens for reproduction.
