A relatively new breed, the Biewer Terrier originated in Germany in 1984 when a Yorkshire Terrier with white markings was born. Over the years, the Biewer has been developed as an entirely separate breed. The Biewer is confident, loyal and clever, and makes a wonderful companion for families and individuals. This dog loves to play and spend time with people, and is generally quick to learn. Biewer Terriers will be between 4 and 8 lbs. when fully grown, and are considered hypoallergenic, making them well-suited for Allergy Sufferers.
A small, affectionate dog, the Yorkshire Terrier has been a popular breed all over the world for decades. They were originally “ratters” - bred to catch rats - for the working class of England, and were one of the first AKC registered breeds after their move to the United States in the late 1800s. These days, Yorkies are known for being independent and feisty at times, but they learn very quickly and are keen to be near their owners. Yorkies are small dogs, typically weighing in at an average of 5-7 pounds, and, although nobody can guarantee any dog is hypoallergenic, Yorkies are often referred to as hypoallergenic because they have human-like hair instead of fur.
The Silky Terrier is a confident, playful breed that was historically known to hunt snakes in Australia, its country of origin. While it is often mistaken for a Yorkshire Terrier, the Silky terrier is actually a cross between the Yorkie and the Australian Terrier. This smart, highly trainable breed is born with a shiny black coat that, over time, turns into a lovely blue color. Silky Terriers make wonderful companion animals and do well children. They are adaptable and can live in any size space.
One of the oldest of the European toy breeds, the Maltese has been a lap dog to royalty for centuries. This all-white dog has silky hair instead of fur, often making it more tolerable for those who are allergic. Maltese love to be pampered, cuddled and held, and typically form strong attachments. They are gentle and affectionate, and are easy to train, especially when training is started early. Maltese have a medium energy level and do well indoors or in Small Living Spaces. This breed is known to be by their owners’ sides at all times, and is sure to charm anyone they meet!
