Maybush Australian Terriers - breeder of Nova Scotia's Aussie Terriers
Small dog with oodles of personality - the Australian Terrier!

small dog makes a great companion
small dog thrives in big city "We love him and often can't believe how smart he is. He's very well-behaved, and people comment on that all the time. He really is a good dog."
- Erin, Brooklyn, New York

The Australian Terrier is one of the smallest of the Terrier breed. This active dog is alert and strong in personality. Keen, intelligent and self-assured, the Aussie is also friendly and affectionate and makes a wonderful companion. He is a natural watch dog and will sound an alarm should any strange dog or person approach.

Life is about choices. One of my choices is to share my life with Australian Terriers and to introduce this wonderful dog to the Maritimes and beyond. My goal is to be true to the highest standards by breeding with care and knowledge.
