      About Silky Terriers

      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.
