Norcal Pups Hours of  Operation

Holly (Brie) French Bulldog

Holly (Brie)


I stumbled upon Doug and NorCal Pups on accident. I was looking for a cream French Bulldog and was shocked to see Doug had "Brie" (now Holly) and her brother "Cheddar." My boyfriend and I were looking to add a Frenchie to our family of two Boston Terriers and we fell in love with Holly's video and photos. I contacted Doug while my boyfriend was in Mexico and planned to surprise him with a leash/tiny harness when he returned. Communicating with Doug was a breeze and the surprise went as planned. I secretly placed a deposit on Holly on a Thursday and we picked her up on Monday. Doug's puppies are true gems. When we arrived, Holly was in an outdoor play pen tumbling around with her brother. Both she and her brother were fat, happy, and healthy. I was super impressed by their play area and how well they both interacted with visitors. Doug ensured we used hand sanitizer before playing with the Frenchies, and he stressed the importance of clean hands for your puppy's health. It was clear Doug cared for the puppies and wanted the best for them. Since we already knew we were taking Holly home, I was extra impressed with Doug's "take home instructions." I've raised two dogs from puppyhood, but no one was as thorough as Doug with New Puppy 101. He sends you home with clear instructions, food, and some starter supplies to make your new puppy's transition from his house to yours even easier. Thank you Doug for a beautiful, sweet, HILARIOUS Frenchie. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and we've already passed your site on to friends. We've gotten so many compliments on Holly, and at least two people wished they knew about Cheddar before he was gone. We love our little girl, and she is nothing short of a camera ham! Thank you so much!

The Shorkie puppy history

         The Shorkie puppy is not a purebred dog, he is a cross between the Shih Tzu puppy and the Yorkshire Terrier pup. This breed originates in the United States of America. The Shorkie has become very popular, being an energetic, friendly and good-looking puppy. If you decided to increase your family with a Shorkie puppy, Nor Cal pups has Shorkie puppies for sale in Bay Area and San Francisco, where all the puppies are raised with care, love and attention.

The physical appearance of a Shorkie puppy

          The Shorkie puppy is extremely cute and he will manage to conquer you from the first moment you saw him. He has a long and silky coat, with different colours or combination of colours, being a crossbreed. 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. Such a breeder is Nor Cal Pups, which gives the best attention to its puppies. Nor Cal Pups has Shorkie puppies for sale in California, who will offer you days full of joy.
