Yorkshire terrier and Silky terrier, how to tell which is which? I read through a few guides on how to distinguish Yorkies from Silkies, but im still at a loss. I bought a puppy from a breeder a few months ago, and she told me that the puppy was a yorkshire terrier, but i have read a few times that the maximum weight for a yorkshire terrier is about 7lbs. My puppy is about 5 months old now, but she weighs 9lbs. And because i cannot tell the difference between a yorkie and a silky, i cannot tell if my puppy is a yorkie or not. If anyone out there could help me out, that would be great!
