Aussie Terrier pups - Nova Scotia

A new generation of Maybush Aussies!

Aussie Terrier in the snow "I am over the moon in love with No Worries Bruce, a pup from Sylvia's first breeding. He is a healthy, gorgeous red, loving, & cheeky Aussie - definitely a true representative of his breed."
- Rosie Culos, Ontario

Height: 10 - 11" at the shoulders

Personality: The Australian Terrier is a small, sturdy, somewhat longer in relation to height, medium-boned working terrier. He is alert and strong in personality and an active litte dog. One of the smallest of the Terrier breeds, the Aussie, like many Terriers, believes himself to be a much larger dog than he is. Keen, intelligent and self-assured, the Aussie is also friendly and affectionate dog and makes a wonderful companion. He is a natural watch dog and will sound an alarm should any strange dog or person approach.

Health: If you are considering the adoption of an Australian Terrier puppy, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances. Breeding of a dog should not be done until after they have been proven to be free of evidence of significant hereditary diseases.

Recommended Health Screening: For the Australian Terrier, the CHIC* database includes screenings for the following:

  • Eye examination by a board opthalmologist;
  • Patellar Luxation;
  • Autoimmune Thyroiditis.

* CHIC - The Canine Health Information Center - "is a database of consolidated health screening results from multiple sources. Co-sponsored by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) and the American Kennel Club (AKC) Canine Health Foundation, CHIC works with parent clubs to identify health screening protocols appropriate for individual breeds. Dogs tested in accordance with the parent club established requirements, that have their results registered and made available in the public domain are issued CHIC numbers."
