The Biewer Yorkie is a rare breed of toy dog that has long hair hanging quite straight down the side of its body. The breed was developed in 1984 due to a so-called Piebald genetic recessive gene, originating from 2 Yorkshire Terriers. It is seldom found outside of Germany, its country of origin, where it was bred.
The breed was first imported into the USA in 2003. The breed standard is that of a Yorkshire Terrier except for the coloring. The head must have three colors: black or blue, white, and gold in good symmetry. The belly, chest, legs, and the tip of the tail are white. The tail is full. The back is blue or black with white in it. The hair is silky, not curly.
As a very new breed, there remains some controversy over whether the Biewer is a completely separate breed or is simply a color variation of the Yorkshire Terrier. However, a true Biewer Yorkie can only be achieved via multi-generation crossing.
This little dog is oblivious to its size, since its temperament is that of a highly energetic, eager to please dog. It is lively, and rambunctious. Much like the Yorkshire Terrier, it is very loyal to its family and owner but can be aloof and aggressive with strangers.
It is a demanding breed and needs a lot of human attention. Although they are of a sweet temperament, they can get snappy and aggressive if over-teased or provoked. Thus they also make great guard-dogs. Biewer Yorkies must not be overprotected, as it might cause them to become neurotic. However, they are the happiest lying on their owner's lap.
Although Biewer Yorkies are rather active dogs, they fair well in apartments, and do not require a yard, if they are sufficiently exercised. These active little dogs need daily exercise, so please keep that in mind.
