Australian Dwarf Terrier

Twitter
Australian Dwarf Terrier Caretaker  
We were taking leisurely walk at Ocean Beach, one of the few San Diego beaches where dogs can enjoy the sand and surf, when we saw a dog walker with more than 10 very small dogs ( I think there were more than 12, but could not be so sure).  
Curious Dog and Dwarf Terriers

Then, we saw a bigger dog, probably curious with these dwarf terriers, who came closer to these cute little dogs.
 At first, we thought the dwarf terriers will get scared with a bigger dog trying to get to know them.
 But then, in what we saw, SIZE DOES NOT MATTER, number is more important.
The poor curious dog had to run away from these cute Australian dwarf terriers.


The Australian dwarf terriers are very sweet though, we got the chance to pet them, and they loved sitting on our lap. We really had a great time playing with them, and seeing them not afraid at all with the bigger dogs around, showing that there is much greater strength in unity.

When we talked to the dog walker, we found out that they are one of the rarest dog breeds, where an adult (the terriers in this picture ) would cost anything from $10,000- $20,000 or maybe higher. The newly born would cost about $1500, but there would be a wait, plus it would cost a lot also to train these royalties. These cute little dogs were the offspring of the mating of a Miniature Fox Terrier (extinct) and Miniature Italian Greyhound (extinct).

  5. That is just hysterical, betchai. I, myself, kind of like bigger dogs. It's nice, though, that they belong to someone. Here in India, most dogs are strays, starving and roaming the streets. I am amazed that they don't get run down in this horrible traffic, with the population of 20 million taking to auto rickshaws, for the most part, for their transport needs.

  7. Classic example of size does not matter. Hehe, so cute! I promised my son we'd get him a small dog when we move to a house (we live in a flat). But definitely not an Australian dwarf terrier. So expensive!

  10. They look similar to a mini pincher. Seems that they are aggressive enough to pass as guard dogs. LOL
