Australian Terrier General Appearance

Australian terriers are small, long dogs with upright ears and medium-length, rough fur. Fur is longest around the torso. The coat is normally not trimmed. Coloring can be blue and tan, sandy, or red. Adults weigh around 14 pounds.

Australian Terrier Temperament

Australian Terriers are high energy and alert. However, they might become aggressive toward other dogs if they aren’t properly socialized and trained. Males in particular tend to be wary of other adult male dogs. Fortunately, this breed boasts above-average intelligence, so they’re highly trainable if given proper guidance. A securely fenced yard and proper leash training will help keep an Australian Terrier out of trouble. They typically live to be 11 or 12 years old.

Australian Terrier Fun Fact

The ancestors of Australian Terriers were brought from Great Britain to Australia in the early 19th century. These ancestors were originally bred to kill mice and rats, which is why Australian Terriers can sometimes run on the aggressive side.
