The Silky Yorkie terrier has soft hair and with the regular Yorkie Terrier it is most likely to have more tangels and doesnt fell that soft enless he just got a hair cut.

They have it right on!!!


Silky Terriers, have softer fur, because of their name silky, because their fur feels silky. and they usually have shorter hair, and are shorter altogether. while the yorkie has rougher hair, because they are hypoallergenic, which means they dont shed, and so they're hair is like real human hair.

They are actually 2 different breeds . The Silky Terrier has a shorter coat than the Yorkshire Terrier, also the Silky is a little larger . Both have a coat that needs regular grooming as it is almost like human hair , some people keep it short like a puppy clip. Neither dog sheds.
