Please Note: As of August 1998 Germany enacted the Animal
Protection Dog Regulations
(TIERSCHUTZ-HUNDEVERORDNUNG) in which it is NOW ILLEGAL to
dock tails or ears,
therefore any docking of tails and ears on the Bierwer is considered
FORBIDDEN in Germany. So
ALL Biewers imported, and shown in the USA must have Uncropped
tails and ears. This standard
depicts the original standard, but we will enforce the current new
restrictions enacted from
Germany. Any Biewer shown in the United States or Germany must
now be shown in its natural
state. Any Biewer with cropped ears or tails will be disqualified
Imperiales D' Morffiz
Mr. and Mrs. Werner & Gertrude Biewer started the first Biewer
through a recessive piebald gene occurrence
in their Yorkshire Terriers. Although Mr. Werner Biewer
passed away in 1997, his legacy lives on through this
exquisite rare breed.
The Biewers started with the master parents
*Darling von Friedheck* and *Fru Fru von Friedheck*.
Both dogs were blue and tan and were world youth
winners in 1981 at Dortmund. Their marriage brought the
first blue, white and golden Biewer ,
*Schneeflocken von Friedheck*, born in January of 1984.
Mr. Biewer continued breeding his colored Biewers to
achieve their white bellies and four white paws. In 1989
the Biewer was accepted as it own breed with
the ACH German e.V. As we know them today, the
Biewer a la Pom Pon has enchanted us with
their elegant coloring and disposition.
The breed standard is that of a Yorkshire Terrier except
for the coloring. The head must have three colors;
blue, white and gold in good symmetry. The belly,
chest, legs and the tip of the tail is white. The tail is full.
The back is blue with white in it. The hair is
silky, not curly.
We will hold true to the German Standards of this lovely spirited little rare breed
