Alert air of the Terrier


The Silky Terrier, was developed in Australia about
the turn of the last century (1900).  To improve the coat of
the Australian Terrier, large imported Yorkshire Terrier
dogs were crossed with native Australian Terrier bitches.
At one time he was known as the Sidney Silky Terrier and
then finally as the Australian Silky Terrier.  In the US, it
came to be known as the Silky Terrier about 1955.

The Silky is a true "toy terrier", a small dog breed, longer
than tall, lightly built, but sturdy and swift enough to catch
and dispatch domestic rodents.  His coat is straight, single,
glossy, silky in texture and quite long, but not floor length.
The hair is parted on the head and down over the back to the
root of the tail.  The coat is virtually non-shedding, but it has
to be brushed regularly and bathed frequently to maintain its
silky appearance.  The Silky Terrier is very friendly with
children, keenly alert and is an excellent watchdog.
