History


The Bolognese it is believed was developed in Bolgna, Italy. The small white dog (an ancestor of the Bichon) was prized by royalty as a companion pet. The Silky Terrier had their breed standard in 1926. This breed was generated by crossing the Yorkshire Terrier with the Australian Terrier. The Silky is a great hunter of small vermin.

Maintenance


This will depend on the coat. If the coat takes on the long hair of the Silky, it will require frequent bathing. If it is short and fluffy or wavy it may only need a bath a few times per year. Either way, frequent brushing is always a good idea to prevent tangles.

Ideal Environment


The Bolosilk will benefit from mental stimulation. They are high energy, but small so they won\'t require lots of exercise. They get enough by playing, short walks and following along with the family. Apartment life is suitable for them.
