History of the Biewer
History of the Biewer a la Pom Pon
The Biewer Yorkshire a la' Pom Pon, pronounced "Bee-vir" originated in Germany in 1984 and was a piebald genetic recessive gene occurrence offspring produced by Gertrud and Werner Biewer's Yorkshire Terriers. The sire and dam of the first recognized Biewer's were “Darling of Friedheck” and “Frufru of Friedheck”.
The Biewer's saw this little dog with its white markings as extra ordinarily attractive and began the selective breeding process to produce more. The Biewer’s named these little dogs with their white markings “Biewer Yorkshire a la Pom Pon”. Thus the beginning of the Biewer Yorkshire as we know them today.
The First German Biewer Yorkshire club was established on May 24, 2003.
The Biewer was recognized as a breed unto itself long before this date though when the general public recognized it unofficially as a breed.
The Biewer is bred, registered and shown in other countries and is on the top of the popularity list for the United States. Few registries in the United States as this date have acknowledged the Biewer as a breed. The Biewer Breed Club of America is one United States Club that has a registry, the BBIR. The BBIR recognizes the Biewer as a breed and actively promotes the breed in the United States and throughout the world. The BBCA is the ONLY breed club in the U.S. which holds to the original breed standard developed by the Biewers and insists that Biewers be bred ONLY to other Biewers.
