"Mischa at 6 months after her first salon visit—Mishca is a Japanese Chin x Yorkie Terrier. She loves going for walks and meeting new people."


The Jarkie is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Japanese Chin and the Yorkshire Terrier. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of thecharacteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
