I was drawn to this site because I looked up Dorkie as a search for what a "dorkie" looked like. I've read and been told by people that Dorkies are "ugly" dogs. And from some of the pics I've seen I would say I agree. But I actual have a very cute 2 year old Dorkie, and he is not at all ugly. I had intentioned to get a Doxie,as I had grown up with a female Doxie and my parents had recently got a male Doxie for my nephew. I really wanted to get a Doxie. My husband and I visited a pet store and looked at Doxies, but didn't buy one. We even saw the Tag Name:Dorkie, mixed in the same pen as the Doxie. I thought what a stupid name to give a dog's bread, Dorkie. We went back to the store about a month later and there was this Dorkie pup still there. He is, without bias the best looking Dorkie I have ever seen. He doesn't look like a curly haired doxie at all, but rather a perfect blend of the two breads ( dad is a Yorkie and mom is a Doxie). He has a great personality and everyone who meets him ( man or dog) fall in love with him. I'm new to this forum, but will post a picture of him for you to see. I've had friends tell me that they are so used to seeing and ugly dorkie that my dog is not ugly as expected. So, yes there are ugly and cute Dorkies out there, just like there are ugly and cute people out there.
