Silky Terrier
The toy-sized terrier has big-dog boldness.
Height: 9 to 10 inches at shoulder
Weight: 8 to 10 pounds
Coat: long and silky
Life span: 12 to 15 years
Breed Group: Companion Dogs
The Silky Terrier exemplifies the expression "small dog, big personality." Weighing just eight to 10 pounds when full grown, he's tough and confident, perhaps because of his heritage as a hunter of small prey. Beneath the feistiness, however, is a loving companion dog who loves to stick close to his person.
