List of Australian Dog Breeds with Pictures

There are many different breeds of dogs, but some are particular to and more prevalent in particular regions of the world. Australia is renowned for its extremely distinctive geography. As a result, some dog breeds were developed that could go through it. In this post, we look at the most well-known Australian dog breeds.

1 - Australian Cattle Dog

Australian Cattle Dog

These strong puppies are skilled herders, as their name implies. The Australian cattle dog, a cousin of the Dalmatian and the wild dingos of Australia, is devoted, watchful, and sharp. They are available in several hues and patterns, ranging from red with red speckling to blue with blue specking. You may anticipate that yours will require a lot of mental and physical activity, including such things as obedience or speed training. These puppies need a task to complete, even when they do not have a farm to run.

2 - Australian Kelpie

Australian Kelpie

A sheep-driving breed known as the kelpie developed quite similarly to the Australian cattle dog. They were bred with dingoes to create a tougher working dog, and they're related to Scottish border collies. The small Kelpie is gentler, less intense, and not quite as intelligent as the Australian cattle dog, with whom it shares many characteristics. They do not fit in a home where everyone is sedentary. They are extremely active, have great stamina, and have a strong drive to work and herd.

3 - Australian Silky Terrier

Australian Silky Terrier

Depending on the breed registry, the Australian Silky Terrier, or simply Silky Terrier, is a tiny breed of terrier dog. The breed was developed in Australia even though it has British ancestral sorts and breeds. It has a close kinship with the Yorkshire Terrier and the Australian Terrier. Although the breed is known as the Silky Terrier in North America, it is known as the Australian Silky Terrier elsewhere on the globe.

4 - Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog

Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog

The Stumpy Tailed Heeler is a medium-sized cow dog with a natural bobtail or tailless tail that resembles and/or is related to the Australian Cattle Dog (also known as the "Blue/Red Heeler"). Australian dingos and European herding dogs were crossed to create the Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog, which was developed there to herd cattle. Although the shorter name Heeler is occasionally used, the term "Heeler" most frequently refers to the Australian Cattle Dog.

5 - Australian Terrier

Australian Terrier

These annoying little creatures enjoy chasing anything that moves. Fortunately, Australian Terriers are intelligent and loyal to their favorite humans. It is not advisable to introduce this dog to many new people at once because of their devotion, which can become territorial (or have multiple pets). Australian Terriers dislike regularity, unlike Kelpies and Cattle Dogs, so be sure to vary their recreational activities.

6 - Bull Arab

Bull Arab

The bull Arab, also known as the Australian pig dog, is a pig-hunting dog created to find pigs from great distances, drag them to the ground, and hold them by the ear. The name comes from the Middle Eastern dog's ancestors, the bull terrier and the sighthound saluki. It is muscular, short-haired, and medium to large in stature. Arab bulldogs are devoted family pets.

7 - Koolie


According to Australian Koolie Breeders International, these dogs flourish in environments with both a task and room to complete it. Such dogs may also be referred to as "German Coolies," a term that originated with German settlers in Australia in the 19th century for their herding Collies. Koolies, which have tan, black, white, and merle coats, were developed from these canines.

8 - Miniature Fox Terrier

Miniature Fox Terrier

The miniature fox terrier was created as a hunting dog or vermin hunter. It is a little, beautiful, lightweight working terrier. It is referred to as the little foxie in Australia. It resembles the Jack Russell, rat terrier, and toy fox terrier in America. It was created to eradicate rats. It's quick, nimble, and playful. It's a wonderful pet for both young and elderly families.

9 - Tenterfield Terrier

Tenterfield Terrier

Tenterfield terriers adore learning new things and developing their skills. The Australian National Kennel Council recognises them, and they are probably descended from the foxhounds that were imported to New South Wales decades ago. Tenterfields feature short, white coats that are marked in black, tan, or blue. Because they are lively and bright canines, they should not be left alone for long periods of time. Get them involved in the action! Smaller pets, like staghounds, should be wary of the Tenterfield's hunting instincts.
