Terrier is one of the smallest in the Terrier Group.
It is also known as the "Aussie". It is a
sturdy, short legged, little dog. Its head is long with
dark, sparkling eyes and v-shaped ears. It has a black
nose that has a v-shaped space above it. Its body is
slightly longer than it is tall and has a level topline.
The chest is strong, moderately wide, and deep. The
feet are small and cat-like and its docked tail stands
up. It has a rough-textured, weatherproof coat that
is about 2-3 inches long. The Australian Terrier sports
a stop knot between the ears, and an apron and ruff
that are lighter colored and finer-textured than the
rest of the coat. Usually the dewclaws are removed when
it is a few days old.
