A Preservation Breed

The Australian Terrier is a small, sturdy, medium-boned working terrier standing about 10-11 inches in height at the withers. The body is rather long in proportion to height, with a long slightly arched neckline. Its head should be long and strong, with pricked ears, and dark, black-rimmed eyes. The coat is harsh and straight, about 2 inches in length all over its body, with a distinctive ruff and apron, and a soft, silky topknot. The tail can be undocked or docked, (leaving slightly less than one half, and should be held erect.) Aussies come in three colors... Blue & Tan, Solid Sandy, and Solid Red.
