Australian Terrier

The Australian Terrier was developed in Australia, as their name implies. Bred to hunt rodents and snakes, Australian Terriers were also prized as watchdogs and companions. Today, the breed maintains those same traits: they’re delightful companions, fierce earthdog competitors, and conformation and obedience showdogs. Even though these are purebred dogs, some may still end up in the care of shelters or rescues. Opt to adopt if this is the breed for you. Australian Terriers have high energy and need plenty of exercise. But their compact size and low-shedding, low-maintenance coat make them a good choice for active apartment dwellers. If you’re looking for a watchdog, this breed’s loyalty and tendency to alert their humans when something is out of the ordinary may be just what you’re looking for. Meet the breed’s needs and you’ll have a loving and dedicated little best friend for life.
