Australian Terrier Breed Statistics

This versatile breed is small, sturdy, and keen. Confident, alert, and spirited, the Australian Terrier is courageous yet friendly and affectionate. His harsh‑textured coat sheds little. Developed to work the rugged Australian outback with his owner (and kill snakes!), this is a dog that will do well in both urban and rural environments.
