I can't say enough about how wonderful these Australian Terriers are with children. Here Daisy Duke and Camryn take a nap.

The Australian Terrier (or "Aussie") - not to be confused with the Australian Shepherd, the Australian Cattle Dog, or the Australian Silky (known as the Silky Terrier in the United States) - was the first Australian-bred dog ever to be recognized and shown in Australia. Persistent efforts over the years produced an ideal terrier to suit Australian conditions and resulted in a rugged, hard-bitten, fearless dog that was equally at home - indoors or out.

Beginning in Tasmania, the earliest efforts at breeding a native rough-coated terrier soon spread to Victoria on the mainland, and then on to the other Australian states. When the Australians needed help controlling rodents on the waterfront, in the gold mines, and on the sheep stations - or to herd sheep and to serve as watchdogs, they began breeding these small terriers from the rough-coated , short-legged dogs from Britain that originally came with the first sailing ships to the Land Down Under.

The Australian Terrier, one of the smallest of the working terriers, was bred to be both a helper and companion in rough times and terrain. A native dog (known as the "rough-coated terrier") and a close relative of the old Scotch dog of Great Britain (not to be confused with the present-day Scottish Terrier) are believed to have been cross-bred with a number of other breeds of British stock to produce the fast, sturdy, weather-resistant and fearless little dog that the settlers needed as they expanded the frontiers of their country. The breeds chosen for cross-breeding were selected to promote specific desired traits.




Camryn and Reba dressed as a baby in the Cutest division, and took Honorable Mention.



Winston is a special needs puppy that we placed with a friend who has an older dog. He is doing fine, just drags one leg when he walks.
