Biewer Yorkshire Terrier

General Appearance

The overall appearance is that of an elegant longhaired tri colored toy terrier with the hair parting down the middle and hanging straight and evenly on both sides of the dog, as though a comb had been used to part the hair from the nose to the end of the body. The back is level, with height at shoulders being equal to height of the rump. Although the outline of the dog gives the appearance of a square, the body length can be slightly longer than the over all height. The tail is carried high over the body in a teacup handle fashion and covered with a long flowing plume.

Size and Shape

Head

The head is slightly rounded with a moderate stop. The muzzle is approximately one-third the length of the head. Bite can be level or scissor bite. Nose is to be completely black. Eyes are medium sized and either round or almond shaped, with an intelligent expression looking straight ahead. The rims are dark in color. Ears are small, V shaped, upright, moderately wide set and covered with hair. They are set to the back of the skull and their base is level with the eyes. Tips should be shaved.

Body

The body is fine to medium boned with a good level top line. Height at the shoulders is the same as the height at the rump. Length of the body can be slightly longer than the height of the dog. The chest comes to the elbows with a good width. The rib cage is moderately sprung with the underline being slightly tucked up and a short but strong loin.

Front Legs

The front legs must be absolutely straight, muscular, and covered with hair. Hind legs are straight when viewed from behind and stifles are slightly bent when viewed from the side. Feet are as round as possible, with white or black nails.

The tail is carried high over the body in a teacup handle fashion and covered with a long flowing plume. Length must go to the stifles or longer.

Coat & Color

Coat

The coat is long and flowing with a soft silky texture. Hair is straight and without an undercoat and should be at least ¾ to the ground. Head fall is tied up into a single ponytail on top of the head and may be left hanging freely or put into a topknot.

Head coloring is (Blue/Black, White, Gold/Tan); (Blue/Black, Gold/Tan); (Gold/Tan, White) in good symmetry. Hair coloring on back is blue or black and white. Amounts of each color are of personal preference with no dominating patterns. Chest, Stomach, Legs and Tip of the Tail is absolutely white.
