The Silky Terrier

Although a toy in size, the Silky Terrier has a true terrier personality.  He is of sufficient substance to be able to hunt and kill domestic rodents. The general public occasionally confuses this breed with the Yorkie, but in reality, the Silky is larger and more closely related to the Australian Terrier. A friendly, joyful temperament and the lovely blue and tan coat make him an ideal companion.

History

Developed at the end of the 1800s in Australia, the Silky Terrier was created when a number of Yorkshire Terriers from England were brought into parts of Australia and bred to Australian Terrier bitches in an attempt to improve coat color in the blue and tan Australian Terrier. The resulting litters produced individuals shown as these three different breeds. The Silkys were then bred together until a recognized type was fixed.

Temperament

This portable pooch can adapt well to any living situation, but make sure you have the time to devote to them they do not like to be ignored, preferring to play fetch or go on walks with their family. Silkys are keen and energetic, so it's best to keep them occupied. The breed must also be bathed and brushed on a regular basis.
