Species group: Toy Group dogs
Other name(s): Australian Silky Terrier
The Silky Terrier was developed in Australia as a beautiful yet sturdy companion, but it retains the scrappy personality of its Australian and Yorkshire Terrier ancestors-- so much so that it can be used to hunt down rodents. If you want a toy that can be picked up and carried, if you want a truly lovely breed with long flowing hair, the Silky can be an attractive choice. However, like most other small terriers, the dog is blissfully unaware of its own size. It can actually be a good watchdog because it will announce strangers. And you'd better check your fence, because this sweet-faced little toy knows how to dig.
Appearance / health:
The Silky Terrier is moderately low set. It is slightly longer than tall and has an elegant body structure.
The Silky Terrier sheds little hair but requires daily combing and brushing to avoid tangles and mats. This breed may need to be bathed often to keep the fur in good condition. After bathing, adequate drying is necessary. Coat and hair on legs may need occasional trimming. The hair over the eyes may be tied in a topknot to prevent it from disturbing its vision.
Silky Terriers do well with regular walks. But they can also be good jogging companions because they have a higher energy level than you might think looking at the short legs.
Behavior / temperament:
Silkies are energetic dogs that love to be involved in family activities. They may turn destructive if left alone for long. They may tend to be possessive of their home and territory. This curious breed is also an enthusiastic digger. They make excellent watchdogs.
Silky Terriers are moderately easy to train. They love to please their owners. A positive and persistent training method may be applied to train them.
Silky Terriers are loud barkers. Their barking may become a problem unless they are properly trained.

Intelligent and Loyal Dog
This dog is a purebred silky terrier. This type of dog needs attention, love, and stimulation; I do not think this dog would do well if left alone most of the time without these things.
We first met him as an older puppy, as he came from a rescue situation. He is sweet and extremely loyal and intelligent. We sometimes joke that he seems like a little boy, and it is almost like he sometimes understands what we are saying. For example, when we talk, he will turn his head to the side, put one ear up, and look at us. He has certain words, such as "treat" or "walk" that get him very excited.
His intelligence can be an issue when it comes to food. He is a scavenger and loves to find things to eat-- especially things he shouldn't eat. Several of our beds have become places under which he has hid his stash of secret goodies. There have been times when we have turned our backs for a second to find him on top of the dining room table eating a carrot cake or going at it in a take-out box. This is both a sign of his tendency to beg for and love human food as well as his intelligence. He also has emotional intelligence. When we have gone through hard times and are sad, he is very perceptive of that and will try to lay with us and take care of us. He can be very protective in a sweet way when he knows we are not well. It is obvious that he loves us and is committed to us. He can sometimes bark a lot when people come to the house or walk outside as an attempt to protect us.
He loves to play and go for walks. While he is small and generally easy to walk, he does not like to be on a leash. His feisty and independent personality means he wants to be in control. Once on a walk, he laid down and refused to move, so I had to pick him up and carry him back. He loves to play ball and is gentle with children and smaller pets. He takes care of his little "sister," a yorkie terrier and has protected her numerous times.
His breed is hypoallergenic, so those with allergies should be fine around him. He does not shed and needs several trims a year. He is not smelly if bathed frequently, and since he is small, he is easy to bathe. T
his dog is a great companion. He is fast and smart, loyal and loving. He loves to play and be with people..

Good for combatting certain types of bacteria
Cefazolin is a 1st generation Cephalosporin. While it does well against many gram positive bacteria (typically those with an uncovered, thick outer wall around the cell), it is very ineffective against gram negative bacteria (those with a thin wall that is protected by an extra membrane). While it does not cover everything, Cefazolin is easier on the body than many other antibiotics. For this reason, it is often used as a preoperative prophylaxis, given in IV fluids prior to surgery. Though its usefulness starts to diminish when dealing with "evolutionarily younger" bacteria, which are usually either gram negative or are developing resistances to certain classes of antibiotics, it remains a regularly used staple in the vet med world. It is commonly used for pneumonia, sepsis, certain bladder and urinary tract infections, or in conjunction with antibiotics that target gram negative bacteria to achieve as broad of a spectrum of treatment as possible in an unidentified infection..

When dealing with any fear, aggressive or otherwise, distance is your friend. Find out how far the dog needs to be away from the subject of their fear and work from there.
I recently worked with a dog who is fearful of people and dogs on walks outside of his home. My mentor trainer and I took him to a field along the beach. Oso, the dog, watched people pass by and was rewarded when he brought his attention back to mom.
Many times, dogs learn to bark because it makes the scary thing go away. You want to show them that the scary thing will leave without barking. If the dog does begin to bark, move him away and treat when he focuses on you.
Desensitizing a dog that is afraid can be a long process. The older the dog or the more bad association the dog has with the stimuli only makes it worse. Be patient and remember distance is your friend..
