The Australian Terrier is alert, friendly and lively. The first Australian breed to be recognized, this small, sturdy dog was bred to exterminate rodents and snakes, and came to the United States in the 1940s. The Australian Terrier has a rough, wiry coat that is usually red or sandy in color, and is adaptable and makes a wonderful pet in any size living space. These confident pups love to be active, are excellent watchdogs, and do well with families as well as with individuals.
Border Terrier descended from northeast England, close to the Scottish border, during the 18th century. The Border’s personality makes us consider that this breed is a terrier since it is affectionate, good-tempered, and easy to train. This breed is highly intelligent and a quick learner. With early socialization and training, they behave fine with other animals. They are good with young kids, but they require supervision with children under the age of six because they might accidentally hurt them. Border Terrier has a high energy level; they require daily walks and playtime. If you have a backyard with a fence, make sure that the fence is high enough because they are experts in escaping. This breed gains weight easily, so make sure to measure the food you give to them. The size of the Border Terrier is about 10 inches, and the weight is between 13 and 15 pounds.
Cairn Terrier originally descended from Scotland such as all the other terrier breeds, and this specific one was bred more than 200 years ago. You may recognize the Cairn Terrier as Toto from the movie, The Wizard of Oz. This breed is very intelligent and curious, but just like all the other terriers, it tends to be independent-minded, tough, but still a great watchdog. Cairn is the happiest when they can hang around their humans. Don’t leave your Cairn alone for a long time because he might become destructive. This breed has a high energy level, loves digging, chasing, and barking. Cairn Terriers love kids and are highly tolerant of them. With early socialization and training, they are very respectful of other animals. Cairn Terrier’s size is about 9 to 11 inches, and he weighs about 14 pounds.
Although these little white dogs were originally meant to be rodent-hunting dogs, or “ratters”, today’s Westies are primarily bred as companion dogs. With a feisty, spunky personality, a Westie is not your typical lap dog; they are happy, active dogs and love to be running and exploring outdoors. They are a hardy, independent breed that are loyal, entertaining and love to be with people.
