|Biewer I am obsessed I have always loved Yorkies and they are like the same but the coloring is different, My next puppy in seven years or so I want to be a Biewer!
The Biewer Yorkie was originally a piebald genetic recessive gene occurrence from 2 Yorkshire Terriers. It originated in Germany on January 20, 1984 from a breeding by Gertrud and Werner Biewer's Yorkshire Terriers. In this particular litter they produced a piebald Yorkie puppy from a genetic recessive gene. This piebald puppy's registered name was Schneefloeckchen von Friedheck ( Snowflake) Sire: Darling von Friedheck a FCI World Junior Champion in Dortmund in 1981 Dam: Fru-Fru von Friedheck a FCI World Junior Championess in Dortmund in 1981. Gertrud and Werner Biewer found this puppy to be quite beautiful and began a selective breeding process to produce more piebald puppies. Gertrud and Werner Biewer named these Yorkies with white markings "Biewer Yorkshire Terrier a la Pom Pon". It was from these breedings the Biewer Yorkie was developed. The breed was officially recognized in 1989 by the ACH ( allgemeiner Club der Hundefreunde Deutschland - ACH e. V ).
Today Yorkshire Terriers and Biewers are considered two different breeds. Against the wishes of some of the Biewer clubs, some American breeders are importing Biewers and crossing them with the Yorkshire Terriers and calling them Biewer Yorkies. The clubs state, "Breeding back to the Yorkie is a big no no, as purebred is NOT achieved by breeding with another breed."
