Australian Terrier

Proudly Australian, the breed evolved from a variety of British terriers that had been brought out to this country by settlers. Specifically bred for Australian conditions, this hard-bitten and tough little terrier was used for everything from guarding the farms and mines to hunting, and from tending the sheep to killing rats and snakes.

Essentially a working terrier, the ‘Aussie’ as they are affectionately known, soon endeared themselves to all those with whom they came in contact as a very desirable companion dog. Equally suited to town or country living, the Australian Terrier is noted for its loyalty, intelligence and even disposition. They are neither highly strung nor a persistent barker, but with their boundless self-assurance will happily take on the role of protector.
