Q&A

I have a Silky Terrier aged two that I recently adopted. She only weighs about 5 pounds and her height is about 7 inches from her feet to her shoulders. My question is would she be considered a "toy" Silky or is this still within "normal" silky weight/height? Thank you.....Lin B.

There is no such thing as a toy silky, But there is the Yorkshire terrier that is a silky look-alike. Silky terriers are generally 8-10 pounds. Yorkies can be up to 7 pounds. Silkies are usually silver when they grow into adults. while yorkies tend to be either grey or black. Silkys are also longer than Yorkies. i hope this information helped.
