Australian Terrier breed profile

General Issues
Australian Terriers were bred in Australia from a number of different terrier breeds taken out by settlers, and were originally used for dealing with snakes and vermin near houses in the outback. They first arrived in the United Kingdom in 1898 and gradually built up a small following with the breed club being established in 1933, and registration with the Kennel Club following in 1934.
