How do you pronounce Biewer Yorkie?

Pronounced “Bee-Vair.”
The breed Biewer Yorkie was first discovered and developed in Germany by a couple, Werner and Gertrude Biewer, Yorkshire terrier breeders. They mated two of their dogs together in 1984 and produced a blue, gold, and white dog named Schneeflocken von Friedheck.
The explanation for this unusual “Yorkie” was a rare recessive piebald gene mutation. From there it was introduced into the United States in 2003 and continues to gain in popularity as people learn about this incredibly sweet, happy, even-tempered terrier that is a fiercely loyal companion to all those humans he determines are his family.
As a breed distinct from the Yorkie, there are still plenty of similarities.
One major difference that you will notice immediately is his upturned tail held over his back, covered with a rich plume of hair.
As you have known, in American, most Yorkies have docked tails, but the Biewer keeps his full tail as part of the standard began in Germany. As in many European countries, the practice of docking tails and cropping ears is banned and the breed’s founders in the U.S. determined that it was in the best interest to maintain this look.
