The Golddust Yorkshire Terrier is a small toy terrier originating in Germany. This delightful and alert dog has a very compact and clean appearance. Basically, the dog is a Yorkshire Terrier but its unique coloration did not allow it to be shown in the show ring since the Yorkshire terriers cannot have 'Golddust' colour. This dog is the result of a genetic mutation in the dog that give rise to gold hue colour. This gene mutation needs to be present in both parent dogs otherwise puppies with gold dust colour will not be produced.
