Australian Terrier, originally known as the Broken-Coated
Toy Terrier was developed in Australia during 1800's to
work around farms, as a ratter and watchdog. It is
descended from British terriers, and counts in its
ancestry the Dandie Dinmont Terrier.
- 14 lbs (5.4 - 6.2 kg)
The coat is a coarse, hard, straight hair, with a
distinctive ruff about the neck. Its grooming needs are
easy and only involve some brushing and a bit of trimming
around the feet and ears.
The Australian Terrier is feisty and dutiful, and makes an
entertaining, endearing companion. It is well suited to
life in the city and the country.
Although it is one of the smallest of the working terrier
breeds, the Australian Terrier is still tough enough to go
