Silky Terrier

The Silky Terrier is a Toy with the heart of a Terrier, a true “Toy Terrier.” The breed originated in Australia and is said to be a cross between the Australian Terrier and another Toy, the Yorkshire Terrier. The breed was first shown in Australia in 1907, but not in the United States until the early 1950’s. He is moderately low set, slightly longer than tall, of refined bone structure, but of sufficient substance to suggest the ability to hunt and kill domestic rodents. His inquisitive nature and joy of life make him an ideal companion.
