Australian Terriers are members of the oldest recognized breed in their homeland. Breeders prioritized qualities like hardiness and courage. From its Tasmanian base, the breed gradually spread across the mainland, as a working terrier and a companion dog.These sturdy, low-set dogs are rather longer than they are high. Lively, active and well built, they very much share the terrier temperament. Their harsh untrimmed coat forms a clear ruff around the neck extending to the breastbone. The long, strong head contributes to a hardy, rugged appearance.
