Parti Yorkie

Parti Yorkie was initially not a standard color of this breed until 2000 when the American Kennel Club recognized it officially. There were speculations regarding its development, and many believed that it was an outcome of crossing the Yorkies with the Maltese to bring in an improvement in their coat texture and color.

However, the particolored Yorkies are purebred and an outcome of the recessive parti gene. If both the parents carry the parti gene, the resultant puppy would have a parti-colored coat.

 The parti Yorkies have a tri-color coat made in combination of three distinct colors, primarily black, tan, and white, though there are variations too. Their back and parts of the face are black, some portions of the chest are white, while tan hairs are seen around their eyes, ears, and chin mostly.

Q. What is the difference between a Biewer terrier and a parti Yorkie?

They have a striking similarity because of their tri-colored coat, yet they differ from each other in several aspects.
The parti Yorkie isn’t a separate breed but varies from the standard Yorkies only in coloration. In contrast, the Biewer Terrier is a distinct breed, developed from the Yorkie since they had a recessive piebald gene not present in the latter. The parti mostly comes in black, white, tan, or even chocolate and tan. On the other hand, the Biewer terrier’s primary colors include black, tan and white, blue, tan, white, and chocolate, tan and white.
Moreover, they vary based on their tail, undocked in the Biewer and docked in the Yorkie.

Q. Are parti Yorkies hypoallergenic?

Yes. Like the Yorkies, the parti-colored Yorkies too shed less, thus considered a hypoallergenic breed.

Q. How big do parti Yorkies get?

The parti Yorkies are similar to the standard Yorkshire terrier breed, perhaps a little smaller. It weighs around 2-7 pounds and has a height of 7-8 inches
