A little dog with big ideas . the Australian silky terrier emerged as a companion breed in the 20 th century , probably as a result of crossing the Australian terrier and the Yorkshire terrier

Showing all the feistiness and territorial qualities of its forebears , it needs firm obedience training and plenty of handling early in life . the silky coat mats very easily and need daily attention
