Silky Terriers are wonderful little dogs. Full-grown, they weigh about ten pounds, give or take a little. Silkys have long, silky hair, but they do not shed.They are alert, inquisitive, and intelligent. The Silky is a sturdy little dog that often seems to think he's a big dog. Silkys are fun-loving, playful, charming little clowns. They are lovable and affectionate. Even though the Silky Terrier is classified as a "toy" dog, in personality, Silkys are more like terriers...and they can be stubborn and willful.
We sometimes place our rescued Silkys before they are posted...if we have a good match with one of the applicants that we have in our files. So, if you are interested in adopting a rescued Silky Terrier, we encourage you to fill our our application.
