Originally, the first Biewer Yorkie, Biewer Terrier or simply Biewer puppies were born in 1984 by accident. It has its origins in Germany, but since then it has won the approval and love of people in many parts of the world. They differ from their predecessors, the Yorkshire Terriers, in their color as Biewer are spotted white.
Energetic love bombs, great companion dogs, intelligent and sometimes a little overconfident.
We wholeheartedly recommend him to dog lovers of any age, gender or marital status. Although he requires early and consistent training due to his potential for being stubborn, he can also be chosen as a first-time dog. Although he belongs to the terrier family, he does not have terrier characteristics. They are relatively active dogs, they need to be both physically and mentally fatigued every day. No matter what program he enjoys participating in, going for walks, mini agility, dog dancing, or learning tricks at home... he will love every moment of it.
Their coat requires a lot of maintenance as their long coat can become tangled if not combed regularly. You can buy special combs and brushes in specialist shops, and we leave the trimming of the fur to a beautician. Cleanliness of eyes and ears is important. He develops easily inflammatory diseases there.
The cornerstones of health are a nutrient-rich diet and its needs-based dosage. He tends to be overweight, which is not only an aesthetic problem, but can also cause joint problems, thyroid disorders or allergies. In addition, eye diseases are common in Biewer Yorkies.
He has a strong need for company, being alone for long periods of time puts a strain on him mentally. We recommend it only to those who can spend a lot of time at home. He gets along well with children, but due to his small body of 2-4 kg and 20-25 cm, make sure that children also treat the dog properly.
He is extremely attached to his own family, but he is insecure around strangers and other animals and expresses this by barking violently. We start socializing him as soon as possible as he tends to hold his own against larger dogs if he misjudges his own size.
The Biewer Yorkie is a very good-natured breed of dog, he will not allow you a minute of gloomy mood.
Like a good little dog, he can live 12-15 years with proper care.
