Aussietare History

The Australian Terrier, also called the Sydney, is a breed of Australian terrier. The Aussi originated in Australia in the mid-19th century, when Scots, English, Irish, and German settlers brought with them their native terriers and imported English setters. The Aussie was used for ratting, rabbiting, and as a watchdog. Its early development was set back by the importation of the Manchester Terrier, which was used to hunt vermin and which had some similar traits to the Aussi. In 1951, the Aussi was recognised as a distinct breed, and the Miniature version of it was recognised by the Miscellaneous Class in 1960. Most authorities now consider the Aussi to be one of the two oldest pure-bred landraces of dogs in the world. The Aussi is noted for its versatility, working well as both a show and a working dog.
