Origin

Germany, the first Biewer Terrier (pronounced Beaver) was born in the 1980s to Yorkshire Terrier parents as the first pup with white in its fur due to a rare occurrence of a recessive piebald gene.  The breed was further established and first imported to the US in 2003. In 2021 it was accepted by the American Kennel Club as its own breed a separate from the Yorkshire Terrier.  It is the first breed in history to be recognized as a purebred as a result of a genetic study. This new breed is rare with relatively very few dogs in the world but this won't be the case for long as this fun, intelligent, low-maintenance dog is winning hearts across the world.
