Welcome to Imperial Shorkies

shorkies are the BEST compaion pets


    Our site is dedicated to the understanding about the size of shorkies.  We want all puppy parents to know there is NO such thing as imperial shorkie puppies. There are MANY breeders out there that will tell you that they have tea cup shorkies for sale. Then after you get your baby home and they grow they end up being 6-8lbs or even bigger.

If there is a shorkie breeder that tell you your new baby will be an imperial shorkie puppy or that your baby will be 2-4lbs GET IT IN WRITING!!! Make sure you read your contact. 90 % of breeders will have in their contract they do NOT guarantee size, so if they tell you your new baby will be 3lbs full grown but the contract you sign says they don't guarantee size you lose.

When looking at shorkie puppies and the size they will be full grown, there are a lot of factors that go into it.  Just because they use a 2lb yorkie dose NOT mean his babies will be 2lbs.

Most importantly you need to look at the genetics behind the adults. You need to talk to the breeder about how big their grandparents and great-grandparents and so on for 5 generations on both sides. If the breeders knows the information. Some may not and some may or they may even lie to you. There are a lot of breeders that tell you what they think you want to hear.

A lot of shorkies can be small because of HEALTH ISSUES. The smaller the dog the more health complications and issues they can have. Shorkies can have liver problems, kidney problems, eye problems, heart problems. There are several health concerns that are shared with the Shih Tzu breed and Yorkie breed. A shorkie can have any issue of the parent breeds. That is why it is so important to do genetic testing before breeding.

 

Some breeder use the words teacup shorkie puppies for sale or toy shorkie puppies for sale and even T-Cup shorkie puppies for sale to sale their shorkies. Remember this wording is most likely just being used as a sales gimmick to make puppy parents think their dog will be extra tiny.. Again my advise to ANY PUPPY PARENT GET IT IN WRITING.... I don't believe there is a such thing as a imperial or Tea cup shorkie

 


 

If a breeder says they have Imperial Shorkies they could have Hypoglycemia Issues and Symptoms

Hypoglycemia is a sudden fall in the concentration of glucose in the blood below normal levels. The body uses glucose as its primary energy source. The brain, for example, is completely dependent upon glucose to function. The liver is responsible for manufacturing glucose and for storing it in a usable form, for release into the blood stream as needed. Muscle tissues store some of the important materials used in this process.

Hypoglycemia Must Be Treated

Transient Juvenile Hypoglycemia, which is brought on by fasting is common in Toy dog breeds. Such as Yorkshire Terrier, Toy Poodle, Pomeranian and other Toy dog breeds. Usually seen in puppies 5 to 16 weeks of age. Stress, low body temperature, poor nutrition, sudden change in feed, water and schedule patterns, infections, and premature birth may precipitate the onset of hypoglycemia. Some puppies, bred exclusively for tiny size ("teacup Yorkies", "teacup Chihuahua"), are even more predisposed to Transient Juvenile Hypoglycemia. Since insufficient muscle mass may make it difficult for the body to store the glucose and keep its blood sugar properly regulated.

Most common clinical signs of hypoglycemia are drowsiness, shivering, collapsing, disorientation, seizures, listlessness, depression, muscle weakness and tremors. Lee Weston, author of the article about hypoglycemia (Pomeranian Club of Canada) says that "the entire sequence of clinical signs is not always seen, so close observation of your pet and knowing when your dog is going into a distressed state can mean the difference between life and death of your dog. Immediate treatment by a veterinarian is imperative, as recurrence of, or prolonged attacks, can cause permanent damage to the brain."

It has been proven experimentally that eight hours fasting in a Yorkshire terrier puppy can result in marked variation of blood glucose. Showing both hypo- and hyperglycemia. Frequent feeding of a high-energy, protein-rich diet to both mother and puppies may prevent toy-breed puppies from developing hypoglycemia. And may help them to overcome periods with a decreased intake of energy.

Puppies and dogs can develop severe hypoglycemia after consuming sugar-free gum sweetened with the sugar-alcohol xylitol. In humans, xylitol has little to no effect on plasma insulin or glucose levels, but in dogs xylitol is a strong promoter of insulin release and can cause severe hypoglycemia with collapse and seizures. With the increased appearance of xylitol-sweetened products in the US, xylitol toxicosis in dogs may become more common. Sometimes, a dog will outgrow this condition.

Hypoglycemia in Adult Dogs and Cats

1. A common cause of hypoglycemia in dogs is a functional islet cell tumor of the pancreas (insulinoma). While a wide variety of breeds may be affected, Labrador Retriever, German Shepherds, Irish Setters, Standard Poodles, Collies, Boxers, Fox Terriers, and most Toy breeds may have a higher incidence than other breeds. Insulinomas occur less frequently in cats.

2. Hypoglycemia can result from excessive insulin administration to animals with diabetes mellitus, and cats may be at greater risk of insulin overdose than dogs, especially if the cats are obese and receiving insulin doses > 6 U/injection, administered once or twice daily.

3. Hypoglycemia in highly nervous hunting dogs is also well recognized. Attacks are characterized by apparent disorientation, weakness and generalized seizures. Recovery is rapid; however the affected animal's hunting ability is compromised. Frequent feedings with protein-rich foods and/or candy bars may prevent the attacks. The cause has not been determined.

In adult dogs, hypoglycemia may also occur with severe Addison's Disease (failure of the adrenal gland to produce the necessary hormones), liver disease (e.g., impaired glucose production and glycogen storage), sepsis, and as a complication of pregnancy accompanied by ketonuria (the presence of ketones in the urine, a dangerous feature of severe and uncontrolled diabetes).
