About Biewer Yorkshire Terrier breed
The Biewer Yorkshire Terrier was developed from the Yorkshire Terrier. As such, the Biewer has a the same compact build as their forebears. Though small, the Biewer has a powerful and hardy appearance. Their ears are small and upright, and the jaws meet in a neat scissor bite or level bite. The Biewer carries its tail up, giving the breed a confident air.
Also called the Biewer Terrier, the main difference between this breed and the Yorkie is its colour. Biewers are typically tricoloured; they will have the tan/gold and black/blue of the Yorkie, with additional white areas of fur on the chest, belly, and legs. Other than that, the Biewer is very similar to the Yorkie. Both breeds have long, soft hair that sheds infrequently. The Biewer is considered a hypoallergenic dog breed, as when these dogs shed, the loose hair usually falls into the coat rather than on the ground. The coat only has a single layer and has a soft, fine texture, but should be brushed daily to avoid tangles.
