The Biewer Terrier, also known as the Biewer Yorkshire Terrier a la Pom Pon, the Biewer Yorkie or just the Biewer, is a fairly new toy terrier breed. It has not yet been recognized by the American Kennel Club, but is recognized by the American Rare Breed Association (ARBA) and of course by their own American breed club, the Biewer Terrier Club of America (BTCA).
The average Biewer weighs between 4 and 8 pounds and stands up to 8 ½ inches in height at the withers. Their single coat is long, straight and silky and comes in white/blue/black and white/gold/tan. It requires regular attention to keep it tangle-free, much like human hair. These tiny terriers are reported to be happy-hearted and almost child-like, and they make extraordinary companions in large or small households. The Biewer Terrier does well with children and other animals and bonds closely with its people. These are playful, mischievous little dogs that can be pushy. Despite their small stature, they are sturdy, active and alert. They are not known to be yappy barkers.
