The Biewer History

The Biewer Yorkshire a la' Pom Pon, pronounced (Bee-vir)  originated in Hunsruck, Germany in 1984.  Mr. and Mrs. Werner & Gertrude Biewer started the first Biewer Yorkshire through a recessive piebald gene occurance in their Yorkshire Terriers. Although Mr. Werner Biewer passed away in 1997, his legacy lives on through this exquisite rare breed.  
Biewer Yorkshires started with the master parents "Darling von Friedheck" and "Fru Fru von Friedheck".  Both dogs were blue and tan and were world youth winners in 1981 at Dortmund. Their marriage brought the first blue, white and golden Biewer Yorkshire, "Schneeflocken von Friedheck", born in January of 1984.  
Mr. Biewer continued breeding his colored Yorkies to achieve their white bellies and four white paws. In 1989 the Biewer Yorkshire was accepted as it own breed with the ACH German e.V.  As we know them today, the Biewer Yorkshire a' la Pom Pon  has enchanted us with their elegant coloring and disposition.
The breed standard is that of a Yorkshire Terrier except for the coloring. The head must have three colors; black or blue, white and gold in good symmetry. The belly, chest, legs and the tip of the tail is white. The tail is full. The back is blue or black with white in it. The hair is silky, not curly.
