Overview
The Silky Terrier is intelligent, curious, and in constant motion. Originally developed in the 19th century in Australia. The Silky is compact but is light in build. They are a friendly and spirited breed. The Silky Terrier can be possessive with their family and property.
Character
The Silky Terrier is an excellent companion. This breed has a keen alertness and a true Terrier nature. They can, on occasion, exhibit defiance and stubbornness. They do not like to be left alone for extended periods of time and do best when someone is home for most of the day. The Silky makes an excellent watchdog.

Does your Silky Terrier bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Silky Terrier is generally happy and loves to play. They are bold in action and have a mischievous streak. This breed loves to dig and bark. The Silky is most suited for older, well-behaved children. They are extremely territorial and may exhibit aggression toward other dogs. They love to chase cats, so raising them with cats from puppy-hood is highly recommended.
Care
The Silky Terrier's coat is highly susceptible to tangles and matting. They require daily brushing and combing. This breed requires a deep commitment from their owners. To keep the coat lustrous regular shampooing is necessary. The Silky is prone to several disorders including luxating patella, tracheal collapse, and epilepsy.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Silky Terrier's coat is virtually non-shedding and odorless. Their coat is one of the breed's most prominent features. It is straight, silky, and shiny. Unlike the Yorkie, whose coat flows to the floor, the Silky coat is shorter and conforms to the shape of the body. The texture is much like human hair. The color of the coat may be blue and red, or blue and tan.
Training
This breed may be difficult to housebreak. They respond best to praise, reward, love and consistency. The Silky Terrier does well in obedience training provided the method used is not done using a choke collar. The Silky trachea is easily damaged. Training must be done firmly and fairly. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Silky Terrier puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Silky Terrier is a bundle of energy. They love to be given chances to run and play, but must have a tightly fenced yard. They also enjoy brisk walks and playing ball. The Silky is able to do well in an apartment, although they are also an active indoor breed. It is important they are kept busy and social to discourage boredom. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Is a Silky Terrier the same as a Yorkshire Terrier? Or are they two different breeds?

No, they are not. Yorkies have shorter snouts and a little bit different coloring. Both breeds are amazing

The Silky Terrier has human hair so it's hypo-allergenic, I'm not so sure about Yorkshire Terriers.

They are different breeds. One difference is their size, the Silky Terrier is larger than the Yorkie. I think the Silky Terriers are better if you have children, their bones seem to be bigger and stronger than the Yorkies.

They are very affectionate. They love to be part of the family and be in on eveything. Sitting on the couch or sleeping in your bed are favorite places for the Silky Terrier.

My 3-year-old Silky Terrier is gray and tan. Is this a normal color combination for Silkys?

So is mine he is 12, but he is mostly gray.

When I researched the dog. I got that the Silky Terrier is supposed to be blue, tan, and/ or red. Two or all of these colors together. It is rare that Silkys can be gray and tan. Or it may look gray and tan. Or it could be two of the three colors put together!! I am in school and I have to do research on the Silky Terrier.

Silky Terrier bodies can be any shade of gray from dark slate blue to light silvers. With tan legs and head and either a silver or fawn headfall. Some will stay black and tan and some will go more beige caused by sunburn and hormone changes. As a young dog, they must never be brown and tan or white.

Unlike the Yorkie, which is supposed to come in one color combination, the standard for the Silky Terrier recognizes several color combinations. The gray and tan you describe is actually recognized as blue and tan by the registries.

We recently purchased a Silky Terrier puppy however, our vet told us today that he is not a purebred. His front legs are curved not straight. We are having a DNA test done. The breeder said he is a purebred. He is 4.5 months old and has wire hair. We were told it could take 2 years for his adult coat to come in.

The front legs is a show quality fault. As a pet, it should not be a problem. The original cross between the Yorkshire and the Australian terrier will occasionally produce too much coat like the Yorkie and a shorter coat of the Australian. The ideal coat is 1/2 way between. The shorter coats do take a couple of years to grow out. Unless you were purchasing a show quality dog it is not a concern. The Silky Terrier coat feels more like our hair.
