Australian Terrier Dog

The origin of the Australian Terrier is relatively recent, having first been seen in show in the late 1800's. They have been known as the Broken-haired Terriers, Australian Rough, and the Australian Terrier, rough coated.

It is not readily agreed upon, but there were a number of different Terriers that figured into the make up of the Australian Terrier.The Cairn, the Dandie Dinmont, the Irish Terrier, the Black-and Tan (known today as the Manchester Terrier), the Yorkshire and the Skye have all been given credit by different sources at different times.
