The standard laid down for this
harsh and wiry. There were two
specimens of this breed from South
lesson in respect to the kind of coat
required, and they were also good in
other qualities. Like other Australian
fanciers, however, the breeder of
these dogs finds it very hard to
secure the proper coat on an animal
that is blue and tan. The blue always
has a tendency to induce softness
of coat, thus making if very difficult
to have blue and tan well defined,
and at the same time a coat of the
proper texture.
Breeders are unanimous in stating
that if black was allowed to pre-
dominate in the body coat, there
would be much less trouble in get-
ting the hard coat. Many of the
best coated Australians cannot be
shown because the body coat is black
or nearly black instead of blue.
I personally see no reason why
the bodies interested should not
agree to allow black or partly black
hair on the body. Australian Terrier
breeders would unquestionably sup-
port the change. This would be the
means of keeping the true character-
istics of the breed to the fore, in-
stead of, as at present., having them
mixed up with the silky coated vari-
ety.
