Bio: Max is a Biewer a la Pom Pon. He is from Germany and registered in Germany. He is a really cool dog and we love him dearly. After much research and reading other forums on Yorkies and Biewers I have learned there is another variation of the Biewer called Biewer Terrier but this variation is a mixed breed and only can be registered in only one club it is not accepted in the German club or other Biewer a la Pom Pon clubs here in the good ole USA. There is a difference in the 2 like the standard for the Biewer a la Pom Pon states it is to have a 3 colored head, Carry the tail high and weigh up to 7 lbs. and be bred only Biewer to Biewer.
The Biewer Terrier is to have a 2 colored head, carry the tail up in a tea cup handle and weigh up to 8 lbs. I did take note from the past that majority of the Biewer Terrier breeders were breeding to Yorkies as they had this on their web sites.
As for the history of the Biewer a la Pom Pon it goes as follows
History of the Biewer a la Pom Pon
The Biewer Yorkshire a la' Pom Pon, pronounced "Bee-vir" originated in Germany in 1984 and was a piebald genetic recessive gene occurrence offspring produced by Gertrud and Werner Biewer's Yorkshire Terriers. The sire and dam of the first recognized Biewer's were â€œDarling of Friedheckâ€ and â€œFrufru of Friedheckâ€.
The Biewer's saw this little dog with its white markings as extra ordinarily attractive and began the selective breeding process to produce more. The Biewerâ€™s named these little dogs with their white markings â€œBiewer Yorkshire a la Pom Ponâ€. Thus the beginning of the Biewer Yorkshire as we know them today.
The First German Biewer Yorkshire club was established on May 24, 2003.
The Biewer was recognized as a breed unto itself long before this date though when the general public recognized it unofficially as a breed.
The Biewer is bred, registered and shown in other countries and is on the top of the popularity list for the United States. Few registries in the United States as this date have acknowledged the Biewer as a breed. The Biewer Breed Club of America is one United States Club that has a registry, the BBIR. The BBIR recognizes the Biewer as a breed and actively promotes the breed in the United States and throughout the world. The BBCA is the ONLY breed club in the U.S. which holds to the original breed standard developed by the Biewers and insists that Biewers be bred ONLY to other Biewers
