Dog Australian Terrier

The Aussie Terrier, also known as the Australian Terrier, is a breed of dog that originated in Australia. It is a medium-sized dog (25 to 28 centimeters), robust and compact (between 5.5 to 6.5 kilograms), with an energetic and alert appearance.

The Australian Terrier has a head in proportion to the body, with round, dark eyes, straight, pointed ears, and a strong jaw. His body is well-muscled, with a short, straight back, deep chest, and strong limbs. The tail is often docked for aesthetic reasons (2 to 3 centimeters in visible length) but naturally curved without touching the back.

The coat of the Australian Terrier is weather resistant and consists of a double coat: a soft and dense undercoat, and a hard and resistant outer coat. Typical coat colors include steel blue, sable red, and tan, with distinctive markings on the face and limbs.

In terms of personality, the Australian Terrier is known to be a brave, intelligent, active and devoted dog to his family. He is full of energy and enthusiasm, making him an ideal playmate for older children. However, he can be reserved or suspicious of strangers, which highlights the importance of early socialization to ensure his balance.

The Australian Terrier is considered to be an easy dog to care for. Its coat requires regular brushing to remove dead hair, as well as occasional trimming or shearing to maintain its well-groomed appearance. It is also important to take care of your ears by cleaning them regularly to avoid infections.

When it comes to exercise, the Australian Terrier needs regular physical activity to stay healthy and satisfied. Daily walks, interactive games and mental challenges are recommended to meet his needs for exercise and mental stimulation.
