Breed Notes 

The Australian Terrier's friendly and affectionate disposition make him a wonderful companion and friend.  He is a small sturdy dog, full of spirit and courage stemming from his background as a versatile working dog from the outback of Australia, yet adaptable to most climates and has an affinity for children, the elderly and the handicapped.
The Australian Terrier was the first Australian breed to be recognized and shown in its native land and was admitted to the AKC Registry in 1960, the first terrier addition in 24 years and the 114th breed entered into the AKC Stud Book.
