Australian terrier Description
  The Australian 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.
