Australia as we know it today was formed just over two centuries ago with an influx of immigrants from Europe, but the first settlements of indigenous people appeared on the mainland centuries earlier.
Before the arrival of the Europeans, the number of aborigines was several hundred thousand. However, 200 years of continuous discrimination and expropriation at some point reduced the number of the indigenous population to 60 thousand people.
If you are wondering what dog breeds are popular in this country, then you have come to the right place. Let’s find out!
The Cavoodle is a hybrid dog, offspring of a Poodle, and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. The Cavoodle became especially thanks to crossbreeding programs in Australia in the late 1990s. The Cavapoo has since become one of Australia's most popular breeds.
The Maltese is a small dog originally from the Mediterranean. It is one of the oldest breeds known to man, especially among European dogs. The Maltese lapdog was born long before herd books appeared, moreover, long before the spread of writing. Therefore, we know little about its origin and are only building theories.
Perhaps it is difficult to find a person who does not know what the Labrador Retriever breed looks like. No wonder - the Labrador is one of the most popular breeds in the world and the most popular breed in America. Now few people know, but once, a long time ago, these dogs faithfully served fishermen. They helped to pull nets ashore from the cold waters of the North Atlantic, guarded the catch, and were generally reliable, loyal companions.
Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a dog that embodies all the best that a person wanted to see in it. Love and incorruptibility, desperate courage and prudence, playfulness and solidity, unbridled strength and subtlety of nature, physical strength, and ease of movement - these seemingly absolutely incompatible features made the Amstaff a legend dog.
