History of the breed

The breed of the Biewer Yorkshire is a breed due to the selection of subjects of Yorkshire Terrier distinguished from it by the color of its coat . It had been created from a selection work carried out by Mr. and Mrs. Biewer (hence its name), a couple of German breeders who, from the mid-1980s , had strived to maintain a line of Yorkshire Terriers with tricolor coat and white variegation. Due to their color, Mr. Biewer’s dogs were not allowed to be exhibited in 1988.

Despite everything, breeders have continued to develop this variety which has not yet been recognized as a pure breed by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) and the Société Centrale Canine (SCC), but recognized by the United Kennel Club in the United States. United (UKC). A situation which would however be on the way to change, as efforts are continuing in this direction. The Biewer Yorkshire is quite rare in France , where a club dedicated to the breed has also been founded.
