History Australian Silky Terrier


Historically, Australian Silky Terrier breed was called the Sydney Silky Terrier , indicating its origin in the vicinity of Sydney . But most likely was lying in Ross , Tasmania . There are reports that several families living in Ross terriers bred colored blue and fawn , used for killing rats and even snakes . Mc Arthur Little Englishman took probably one of the bitch to England and overlaid Dinmond Terrier Dandie . Returning to Australia, he took the information thus obtained hybrids and later helped to create a silky terrier . In 1959 the name was changed from Sydney Silky Terrier Australian Silky Terrier. As the name suggests ” Silky ” means silk and refers to the silky coat of this breed . To this day, Silky Terriers have a temperament indicating the relationship of this race with former tępicielami pests. And despite the fact that among the dogs miniature deservedly called terrierami .


Australian Silky Terrier was created in the first half of the nineteenth century. It is certain that the Silky Terrier was created from a cross between the Australian Terrier , Yorkshire Terrier and with the participation Diandie Dinmond Terrier . It should be remembered that representatives of the three races to differ materially from those breeds of dogs living today . Probably in the uprising Silky Terrier was also attended by many other varieties of miniature terriers but today it is impossible to tell what exactly were the race. What is certain is that in the nineteenth century in England about 25 Yorkshire Terriers were brought to the state of Victoria , and about 25 to Southern New England.

Australian Terrier breeders looking for dogs that may contribute to the culture Black and tan began to be used for mating females more copies of the Australian Terrier dog breed Yorkshire Terrier. In this way, through blood breeding led to the creation of three types of Terrier : Australian Terrier , Yorkshire Terrier and intermediate type . Intermediate -type dogs , however, was not uniform , some of them had some rough hair silky and it is these dogs became the starting point for breeding Australian Silky Terrier


1889 years was the first Australian Wirehaired Terrier Club was founded in Victoria included it under the auspices of the Australian Terrier and Australian Silky Terrier . In 1890 there was the first club show in which the two breeds of dogs were judged in one class . 1908 was Victoria Silky and Yorkshire Terrier Club of Victoria ( dogs were registered with the Kennel Control Council ) , a similar club opened at the same time in New South Walli (dogs registered in the Royal Agricultural Society Kennel Control) . They focused highest number of breeders breed Silky Terrier. Independently of each other , both organizations have issued standards Australian Silky Terrier . In 1900 in New South Walli and in 1909 in Victoria. Both patterns overlap in most points , but differed in detail.

In both dog  standards required by the body for an extended format of a typical wedge head Terrier . The hair on the ears, muzzle and legs should be long and silky jacket on the body. Differences included the establishment of two weight classes in New South Wales (up to 2.7 kg and 2.7 kg to 5.4 kg ) and one in Victoria (from 2.7 to 5.4 kg ) . In Victoria considered drooping ears and standing in New South Wales considered only ears pricked. Dogs of New South Wales in Sydney called Silky Terrier with Victoria Victoria Silky Terrier. But more often began to use the name Sydney Silky Terrier until 1959.


In 1926, he began to harmonize weight classes , have published a new pattern. In 1932 the Kennel Control Council of Victoria earned crossing Yorkshire and the Australian Silky Terrier . Unfortunately, progress in breeding occurred much later , because farmers were not unanimous as to the ideal image of the breed. Some growers prefer silky thumbnails in the type of Australian Terrier weighing 3.6 to 4.5 kg , while others are smaller weighing up to 2.7 kg . However, the excessive miniaturization led to a few drawbacks , such as the wrong ridge . As a result of such activities became increasingly difficult to distinguish between a Yorkshire Terrier Silky Terrier .

This situation prevailed until 1959. To standardize the mass contributed U.S. farmers ( 3.6-4.5 kg) . When in 1958 the Australian National Kennel Council realized that the rock can be considered as an international standard developed by the Americans , began to re- work on the model formulated explicitly that ” the maximum permissible weight is 3.6-4.5 kg. New Master was adopted in 1958 by the Kennel Council. American Kennel Club recognized it finally in 1959. template for many years did not undergo significant changes.


Recent changes in the pattern are the most radical since 1959. They are related in part to the fact that each race to be transformed over the years , and some social change in the approach to the dogs . 19.04.2005 The pattern of the most significant changes is the independence of weight and height . Formerly precisely defined weight of this breed has ceased to apply . More important was the growth that is 23-26 cm, to which the dog must have a proper fitting . Another significant change is that the old patterns described was merely copied the look of the tail while the new is also a record that determines the appearance of the tail is not copied , which results from the fact that a growing number of European countries to move away from such practices, considering them as mutilation of dogs. Also in Poland for several years does not copy the tails Australian Silky Terrier even though the dogs may still be in the country issued
