When a breed is classified as a “rare breed” there will always be backyard breeders who think about quick profit. For this reason, some will pair 2 Yorkies together and simply call the Biewers… Others will believe the theories mentioned above and pair a Yorkie with a Shih Tzu or a Maltese and call the Biewer puppies. Quick, unplanned and thoughtless mating produces low quality dogs.
In addition, a Yorkie bred to a Biewer is not a true, purebred Biewer Yorkshire Terrier….only 2 purebred Biewers can produce true Biewer puppies.
The color of the dog will alert you to the fact of whether he or she is a true Biewer… color is banded hairs
(strong panels of color across the body).
This standard is extremely similar for weight. Since the weight of the Biewer Terrier was written in Europe, the metric system was used. Therefore, it gives a weight of under 3.1 kg (6.83 pounds). If it were first written in the US, it would be the same as the Yorkshire Terrier of under 7 pounds (3.17 kg).
The standard for the height is any height up to 8.66 inches (22 cm)…as opposed the AKC not having a specific height for the Yorkie, although most fall between 6-9 inches (15.24 – 22.86 cm) .
Coloring of the body and head are: white, blue/white, blue or black (with no brown coloring). It is customary for the head to consist of 3 colors… for the legs, belly and tail to be white. Hair on the chest should be solid white. White, blue or gold should be on the head.
The coat should be to a length of ¾ down the body or just touching the floor. The standard calls out for straight hair. The coat has only 1 layer (no undercoat).
, eye rims and nostrils should be dark.
should be small and erect.
are either a scissor bite or a level bite
This is a rare breed and the prices reflect that. For a purebred, the average price in the United States is between $1500 and $2500.
