Since this breed has lasted briefly, even the development dates are well known. In 1984, on January 20th, Werner and Gertrud Biewer cross-bred two Yorkshire Terriers. These particular Terriers had piebald genes, and a Biewer was spotted after birth. It was easy for these breeding partners to spot the difference since they had bred the Yorkshires for twenty years.
The breeding happened in Germany, where the Biewer Terrier’s fame rose and dropped. It was later reignited after the introduction of this breed in America. In 2014, the Biewer Terrier, under AKC's supervision, entered the Foundation Stock Service before its recognition by the same club in 2021. It now belongs to the toy group. Many have either bought or participated in the Biewer Terrier rescue activities to have the dog's touch.

They are also energetic despite the Biewer Terrier size, and they need all the attention from the owners. You can cuddle them all day since they love staying on your lap. When they are free, you will find them playing.
They are relatively intelligent, but they also like doing what they feel. That makes training them challenging. These dogs have the terrier name but don't possess the same characteristics as other terriers. So, you will not find them digging or chasing other pets like the Cairn Terrier and others. What you may find annoying about this breed is their barking nature. A Biewer will bark at anything new as long as it’s alerting it.
They also take their time to get familiar with strangers, but once they do, they become friendly. This happy nature is what makes them unsuitable for watchdogs.
Taking Care of a Biewer Terrier
Training and Exercise
They love being with the owner, so they suit family settings. They are intelligent dogs, too, and that is why training them is easy and challenging at the same time. Potty training, however, takes a longer time before a Biewer grasps the concept. Like most dogs, training at the puppy stage is much better than dealing with a full-grown Biewer Terrier.
Due to their playful nature, these dogs exercise by themselves. So, whether you are playing with the dog or it’s chasing a ball in your living room, these are dogs that will be engaged whenever they feel the need to stretch. If you are fond of teaching the dog some new tricks, that will be much better to help keep them occupied. They also love going out. So, short walks in the park or that hallway will help them keep the happiness.
Feeding a Biewer requires nutritious food meant for a tiny and energized dog. You can treat it occasionally but don't overfeed it to prevent obesity. It’s also much better when you stick to a feeding schedule. Their gastrointestinal (GI) system is also quite sensitive, so you should stick to high-quality meals. If you have a Biewer Terrier puppy, it will require you to eat more often. However, the feeding times and quantity should be reduced as the dog grows. If you lack ideas, the vet near you can always help with the best recommendations.
These dogs have long coats that require regular brushing, if not daily. If you don't like doing it often, consider having a short hair Beiwer Terrier. The coat does not mat much, though, but if you have a dog with a softer coat, matting may occur. The long coat requires much brushing. You can, however, keep the hair brushing more effortless and minimal by engaging in Biewer Terrier haircuts.
Due to the coat’s nature, a Biewer requires quality brushing tools. Bathing can be occasional, but quality products should be in use when it's time. Keep the nails short using the right clippers, and also check the ears for any wax and dirt buildup. Other acts here can include teeth brushing once or twice a week. Grooming is the best way to bond with this dog, and it's advisable to start when the dog is young.
Biewer Terrier Health Issues
This is one of the dogs that can live for the longest time – up to 16 years. It can, however, face the following health issues in the course of its living.
- Congestive heart failure: The heart cannot pump enough blood to the rest of the body. The dog tires frequently, or you will see it not playing as often as it should.
- Dental disease: When tartar builds up, it affects the gum, which transfers the problem to the roots. The Biewer Terrier will later lose the teeth, which can also cause problems in other body parts such as the liver and kidney.
- Luxating patella: The knee, at times, slips out of place. This condition can resume normalcy independently, although a severe case will require surgery.
- Portosystemic shunt: This is a problem shared with the Yorkies, too. Blood vessels bypass the liver, and that causes problems such as stunted growth.
- Legg-calve-perthes syndrome: The femur's head begins to degenerate, and that is when you see the dog limping. A severe case may call for surgery.
