Silky Terrier Breed
The Silky, as he’s often called, is an elegant little dog with a beautiful, silky coat. Beneath that delicate-looking exterior, however, is a big, bold spirit. People unfamiliar with the breed are often surprised to see the small Silky warn off intruders or romp with large dogs.
The Silky is, after all, a terrier, with a true terrier temperament: scrappy, tenacious, and fond of digging, barking, and chasing. If you don’t consider these characteristics endearing, the Silky Terrier isn’t for you.Despite the tough attitude, however, the Silky’s a loyal dog who loves to be with his family.
The Silky needs daily physical and mental exercise, and will be happy to join you for a walk in the neighborhood or a hike in the country. Despite his energy, he can be an apartment or condo dog. For the right owner, this fun-loving and energetic companion can add spice, and a lot of love, to life.
