Australian Silky Terrier



The breed was developed by crossing the Australian Terrier with the Yorkshire Terrier. When the early breeder McArthur Little based his famous kennel in Sydney, the breed earned its early name of the Sydney Silky. He has inherited attributes from both sides of his ancestry: the silky coat and colours of the Yorkshire Terrier and the alertness and spirit of the Australian Terrier. Toy breed he may be but he is still capable of despatching rodents.
