"May I always be the kind of person my dog thinks I am"





I'd be happy to have my biography be the stories of my dogs. To me, to live without dogs would mean accepting a form of blindness.

Alluring Abagail of Northern Beauty Briewers

The Biewer (pronounced like Diva with a "B") first made his surprise appearance in 1984 when two German Yorkshire Terriers were bred and produced a tri-colour puppy. The breeders, Gertrude Biewer and Mr. and Mrs. Werner, decided to continue to breed for this particular colouring.

Mr. and Mrs. Biewer developed a standard for the new breed which was first recognized in Europe in 1989.

The first Biewer to be shown in Canada was shown in Ontario in 2006. 

The Biewer stands up to 22 cm tall at the shoulder and weighs about 3 kilograms. He has long, silky, straight and shiny hair that reaches down to the ground. The coat is tri-coloured: white, black or blue, and gold. His long hair will require daily grooming. His small size befits his principle role as a companion.

His twinkling eyes and intelligent expression endear him to all he meets. The Biewer has charm and personality to spare! A confident, happy, animated companion, the Biewer fits in well with a family unit. As a typical terrier, he is loyal, adventurous, and makes an excellent watch dog. It should be remembered that though his personality is big, this is a small dog, not built for rough housing with very young children. 

As with all dogs, early obedience training and socialization are the key to a well balanced animal.
