Silky Terrier - Although it's a toy breed, this little dog has the alert, inquisitive nature typical of terrier breeds. Another creation of the inventive Australians, the Silky Terrier was developed from a cross between Australian and the Yorkshire Terriers.

Up until 1929 the Australian Terrier, the Australian Silky Terrier, as well as the Yorkshire Terrier were not clearly defined.

Australian Terrier Dog is descended from the rough coated type terriers brought from Great Britain to Australia in the early 19th century. The ancestral types of all of these breeds were kept to eradicate mice and rats. The Australian Terrier shares ancestors with the Cairn Terrier, Shorthaired Skye Terrier, and the Dandie Dinmont Terrier; Yorkshire Terriers and Irish Terriers were also crossed into the dog during the breed's development.
