Biewer Breed Profile
The Biewer is that of a long-haired Toy Terrier whose hair hangs evenly and quite straight down the side of the body, and from the base of the skull to the end of the tail. The Biewer should be very compact and neat. The tail should be carried up. The outlines should give the impression of the powerful and well proportioned body. The hair on the body has a length ¾ down the sides of the dog, or long enough to reach the ground, and is absolutely straight (not wooly), shiny like silk and of fine silky texture, without an undercoat.
Other Names: Biewer Yorkshire a la Pom-Pon, Biewer Yorkie, Biewer Yorkshire Terrier
Height: 8 1/2 in.
Colors: Rather White or blue-white broken
or closely blue absolute, or black, without brown coloring. Hair on the breast,
pure white on the belly and the legs. The head with white-blue-gold, symmetrical
Temperament: The Biewer Yorkie seems
oblivious of its small size. It is ever eager for adventure and trouble. This
little dog is highly energetic, brave, loyal and clever. Affectionate with its
master, but sometimes suspicious of strangers. It can be aggressive to strange
dogs and small animals. In other words, it has true Terrier heritage. They do
best with older, considerate children. Biewer Yorkies are easy to train, although
they can sometimes be stubborn. The breed is demanding and dependant and needs
a lot of human attention. The Biewer Yorkie is an excellent watchdog, defending
its territory in no uncertain manner. They can get snappish if surprised, frightened
or over-teased, but are usually very sweet and loving. They can be difficult
to housebreak. These little dogs should not be over-protected, for they may
become neurotic. The Biewer Yorkie likes to bark, but it can easily be taught
not to do so. Being a toy companion breed the Biewer is happy sitting in your
lap or playing.
Care and Training: As a companion most owners prefer to have this breed in a "perpetual puppy cut". A bath at home about every two to three weeks will maintain a healthy coat, if it is combed out with a wire comb once a week. Show Coat: The Biewer will develop a coat that reaches the ground. Some breeders rap the coat to produce a very impressive elegant floor length coat for the show ring.
Special Needs: Grooming, socialization,
exercise and training.
Health Issues: The dogs are susceptible to eye irritations, tracheal collapse, premature dental disease and patellar luxation. Biewer Yorkies are prone to bronchitis and early tooth decay, poor tolerance of anesthetic and delicate digestion. Teeth Cleaning is important for the Biewer.
Life Span: 12-15 years
Activity: These are active little dogs,
who need a daily walk. Play will take care of a lot of their exercise needs,
however, as with all breeds, it will not fulfill their primal instinct to walk.
Dogs who do not get to go on daily walks are more likely to display behavior
problems. They will also enjoy a good romp in a safe open area off lead, such
as a large fenced in yard.
