The Torkie is a cross between the Toy Fox Terrier and the Yorkshire Terrier. Both small breeds of dog, the Fox Terrier and the Yorkshire Terrier share several similarities in temperament, such as alertness, playfulness and the equal propensity to just relax and lounge about. A combination of these makes the Torkie an ideal pet and companion, especially for urban dwellers.

The Yorkshire Terrier, nicknamed Yorkie, is an English breed with its standards defined in the late 19th century. Ancestors were Scotch terriers (meaning, from Scotland), with probably a mix of Maltese and Paisley Terrier.

The Toy Fox Terrier originated as an American breed, with several other small dogs in its lineage, most probably other fox terriers and the Chihuahua and Manchester Terrier. The Toy Fox Terrier is a good, versatile dog, one that can be cuddled or held, or taken along on a hunt or long walk to flush and chase quarry.
