If you "Yorkie" is over 7lbs it IS a silky. It may be mixed with a Yorkie but does have SILKY in it. They are basically the same except silky have a bit longer body and snout....its not always easy to tell the difference but a Yorkie is under 7lbs.....you can argue the fact all you want but it's the truth! heres a good link....http://tessier-silky-terriers.com/?page_id=33

for got to add.....I bought a Yorkie from a "reputable" Breeder and she turned out to be a mix of Yorkie and Silky...She's beautiful and everyone just thinks she's a Yorkie...She weights usually around 8 lbs. Our obedience trainer told us this (confirmed by our vet) so I did alot of research and all knowledgeable sites stated that a Yorkie has to be 7lbs or under anything over is a Silky or Silky/Yorkie mix. I went back to the Breeder and she insisted Maggie was a pure Yorkie....she promised me she would look into it and she did come back and tell me one of the great grandparents of her Dam ended up being a Silky. I could care less really that she's not 100 % Yorkie.....She's an amazing dog and I wouldn't trade her for anything!

A few things are different most of the time. Silkys tend to have wavy coats, longer muzzles, and longer bodies. I think Frodo is half Yorkie half Silky. He was rescued from a Yorkie puppy mill in Missouri.
