The Corkie is a mix between a purebred Cocker Spaniel and a purebred Yorkshire Terrier. They are called hybrid dogs due to their origination from two different pure breeds. They are small size dogs with an average height and weight of 9 to 14 inches and 8 to 20 pounds respectively. They are small but sturdy dogs with well built athletic body and very intelligent and expressive eyes. These dogs are loving, energetic and fun to have around.
The Corkie dogs are found in brown, tan, brown and white, black and tan, yellow or parti colours.
They have medium to slightly longer straight and smooth silky coat.
The Corkie dogs are very fun loving and energetic and obedient. They are good natured and do well with all family members. They are specially gentle and affectionate to children and can get along well with other dogs and pets. These dogs are alert and will make good watch dogs. They are eager to please and very tractable dogs that can adjust to city life as well as farm life. They are excellent dogs to have as family and watch dogs.
