|History of the Biewer .
(The name Biewer is pronounced Bee-va)
This breed originated in Hunsruck Germany. In 1984 Mr.& Mrs. Biewer start the first Biewer though a
gene mutation in their yorkies, also known as a recessive pie bald gene. Although Mr. Werner Biewer
passed away in 1997, his legacy lives on through this exquiste rare breed.

Biewers started with the Master parents of the blue & tan sire, "Darling of Friedheck",
the dam, also blue and tan in color, "Fru Fru of Friedheck".
Both dogs were world youth winners in 1981 at Dortmund. Their marriage brought the first
blue-white-golden Biewer Yorkshire, "Scheneeflocken of Friedheck", born January of 1984.
Mr. Biewer continued breeding his colored yorkies to achieve their white bellies and four white paws.
In 1989 the Biewer Yorkshire were accepted as it own breed with the ACH German e.V. As we know
today The Biewer a'la Pom Pon, that has enchanted us with their elegant coloring and disposition.
The head must have three colors; blue/black, white and gold in good symmetry. The belly, chest, legs
and the tip of the tail is white. Full tail. The back is black/blue or black/blue with white in it. The hair
is silky, not curly. The black generally turns blue in time just as the Yorkshire Terrier. The coat may
take two years to get to it's final color.
We will hold true to the German Standards of this lovely rare breed. They will be registered in the
Biewer Breed International Registry.
We are committed to what Mr. Biewer has set forth, and honor of him and his work.
|The Original German Biewer Standard wriiten by Mr. Biewer
|As of May 2002 Germany enacted the Animal Protection Dog
In which it is NOW ILLEGAL to dock tails or ears, therefore any docking
of tails and ears on the Biewer is considered FORBIDDEN in Germany.
All Biewer's imported, and shown in the USA must have uncropped
tails and ears. Any Biewer shown in the United States or Germany
must now be shown in it's natural state. Any Biewer with cropped ears
or tails will be disqualified.
