Silky Terrier - Guide to Silky Terriers

Description: The Silky Terrier is a small type breed, low set and fine boned with a long blue and tan coat parted down the middle. In the late 1800s, breeders in Australia wanted to improve the color of the Australian Terrier's blue and tan coat, therefore crossbred this breed with the Yorkshire Terrier. Initially each litter produced some Silky Terriers, yet also Australian Terriers as well as Yorkies. The Silky Terriers were then bred together until the desired type was achieved. In both Sydney and Victoria, Australia, breed standards were written, although there were differences between the two. Eventually however, there was a meeting of the minds and the breed standard was unified in 1926.

Silky Terriers were brought to the United States -where they quickly became popular - by WWII servicemen who had been stationed in Australia. This breed has a characteristic trait of being keenly alert and they're also known to be charming, lively and happy.

The American Kennel Club recognized the Silky Terrier in the Toy Group in 1959.

Height: The height for a Silky Terrier can be from 9 to 10 inches (23 - 26 cm) tall. AKC Standard

Weight: The weight of a Silky Terrier is approximately 10 pounds (4.5 kg).
