Shorkie Color and Coat Texture Information:
Color > The Shorkie has several colors. Some are: classic blackgold and db gold. (db: double gold. two shade's of gold-one with noticable highlights). But, the blackgold can have different degree's of black. Meaning Black can go from jet ink black to a smoky. Also, some blacks turn totally into a blued. (or gunmetal gray). Same with the Golden color. Different degree's of gold. Such as light golden to a honey gold.
Another Color of the shorkie is the Black Burgendy, all solid colors, and parti's (three colors). The Black and white, red and whites, and smoky white. As the purebred shihtzu has over 20 acceptable colors to the breed.
Interestingly, the AKC Purebred Registered Yorkies have widen their colors to include the "Parti" color (three colors).
Imagine a purebred Yorkie thats white, black, and brown. Then compliment that to a maltese breeding. Another surprise delight for the Morkie puppy dog! And, the purebred ShihTzu has several solid colors and parti colors as well. So, a shorkie can take on any of these.
Texture > With Morkies and Shorkies-Basically the more top quality Yorkie line and the "amount of the Yorkie" in the Morkie and Shorkie will determine one obtaining a true bone silk nonshed coat. Is the morkie half and half yorkie and maltese? Or 3/4 Yorkie and 1/4 maltese. The more yorkie, the chances for a fine bone silk coat are greater. The morkie from half and half yorkie and maltese is producing both silky and soft fluff coats. But, one needs to be careful not to let the dense fluff take over the breeding program. Silk is Silk. And, glossy straight silk is awesome.
The Texture of Shorkie coats tend to learn towards soft fluff, but if there's more yorkie in that combination then one could get a silky coat. The soft fluff is amazingly soft to the touch and wavy or straight. It's slightly more dense than the silk.
Please view the purebred standards by AKC. This way you can see the variety of colors the breeds have to offer.
