The Australian Terrier was created from the British rough-coated Terrier. It was presumably brought to Tasmania by colonists from the British Isles in the 80s of the XIX century. To all appearance, the breed was produced by crossing this sturdy terrier with several other canine varieties, including the forefathers of the Manchester Terrier, the Dandie Dinmont Terrier, the Skye Terrier, and the Yorkshire Terrier. It’s also very likely that Irish and Cairn Terriers were also utilised in its development. The resulted dog was remarkable for moderate size, robust constitution and dauntless nature.
