Overview
Classified as one of the smallest working terriers, this breed was developed in Australia. They were bred for a variety of uses such as watchdog, shepherd, vermin hunter, and companion. Australian Terriers hold the unique distinction of being the first native-bred Australian dog to be shown and the first to be recognized in other countries.
Character
The Australian Terrier is low-set, sturdy, and small in stature. However, their small size belies their exhibition of a strong and true terrier nature. This breed is proud, hardy, alert and confident. They are bold, fearless, and charming. They are an excellent choice for a variety of lifestyles and make lovely companions.

Does your Australian Terrier bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
This breed displays the bravery and courage of much larger dogs. The Australian Terrier is extremely affectionate with their family, loyal, and highly intelligent. They are exceedingly amusing, spirited, and curious. This breed does best in a home with older considerate children. They get along with other dogs and household pets, but do have a propensity for chasing the family cat as well as small outdoor animals such as squirrel and rabbit. They thrive on human interaction and do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time. The Australian Terrier has acute hearing as well as keen eyesight and makes an excellent watchdog. They are wary of strangers but are not aggressive unless provoked
Care
This breed requires brushing several times a week. They also need the coat plucked every three months Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary using a mild shampoo to preserve the integrity of the coat. Trimming around the eyes and ears should be done as needed. The Australian Terrier is a relatively healthy breed. However, they may be prone to patella luxation, Legg-Calve-Perthes disease, diabetes, epilepsy, skin allergies, and thyroid disorders.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Australian Terrier is a double coat breed. The outer coat is straight, harsh, and rough in texture. The under coat is soft, dense, and short. This breeds weatherproof coat is longer on the body than the hair on the tail, rear legs, and feet. There is a protective ruff of softer hair at the neck, which blends into an apron. The forelegs have light feathering and there is a topknot of soft and fine hair, which covers only the top of the head. The color of the coat comes in dark blue, silvery blue with tan markings on the legs and head, solid red, and sandy. This breed sheds little to no hair.
Training
The Australian Terrier is quick to learn but is easily bored by repetition. Early socialization and obedience training is a must. They do not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. This breed does best when trained with consistency, firmness, fairness, praise, and motivation. They are very adept in the areas of agility, tracking, earthdog, and obedience. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Australian Terrier puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
This breed requires exercise on a regular basis to keep them physically and mentally fit. If they become bored they will become destructive. The Australian Terrier enjoys securely leashed walks, family play sessions, and a romp in a safe area. They do well in an apartment or condominium dwelling provided they are given sufficient exercise and stimulation. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

No, this is the Australian Terrier. The Australian Terrier has a double coat. The outer coat is straight, harsh, and rough in texture. The under coat is soft, dense, and short. Their fur is nothing like Poodle fur.

What is the best way to teach puppies not to bite? When he bites it's just when he gets started playing and he can really get rough. My hands look like hamburger meat.

There are two ways to teach your puppy that biting people is unacceptable. First way is the moment your puppy bites you, you yelp really loudly, get up and leave the room. Do not allow the puppy to follow you, and ignore the puppy for 10 - 20 seconds. Then come back and play with the puppy as if nothing happened. If this does not work, take the upper lip of the puppy and squeeze it into his tooth when he bites you. This teaches him that when human skin is in his mouth, he will bit himself.

I would like to rescue a 5 yr old male Aussie however, I'm concerned as I do not have a 9 year old.

If your female is social, give it a test run if you find the male you like. I would suggest they both be spayed/neutered. :-) My Sheltie female is very much spoiled girl, but she socializes well and we are actually seeking another dog to replace an old dear who is chasing bunnies in heaven.

How long are Australian Terrier's in heat before they can mate?

Unless you are a reputable breeder, your dog probably shouldn't be bred. Please study under a reputable breeder before you even think about breeding. Your dog should be of impeccable breeding to begin with and have correct confirmation through several dog shows to attain titles. But in general, the dog will be in heat for an average of 3 weeks. For the first 7 - 10 days, the dog will bleed and then she will be ready to mate for about 1 - 7 days depending on the dog and then she will bleed again for a few days after.
