The Australian Silky Terrier is a small and compact short legged terrier, alert and active. The long silky grey and white or blue and tan coat is an identifying feature, hanging straight and parted along the back, and described as "flat, fine and glossy". The breed is called the Silky Terrier in North America, but is called the Australian Silky Terrier in its country of origin and in the rest of the world. The Silky has a strong, wedge-shaped head. The eyes are small and almond-shaped. Check out our collection of Australian Silky Terrier dog names for male or female Silky puppies.
