16 High Energy Dogs For Families On The Go
Australian Terriers are small (they average between 15 and 20 pounds) but what they lack in size, they make up for in spunk. Much like their fellow terriers, Aussies pack a lot of punch in a small package. Like true working pups, they are quite high energy dogs. True to their history as working dogs, Aussies like to hunt, so if you take them out on a long walk or a hike, you have to keep them on a leash. Especially because they have a soft spot for chasing squirrels and the odd cat. â€œUpbeat and lively, the self-assured Aussie approaches life with plenty of the old-time terrier curiosity and grit,â€ says the AKC.
