Seeking information on Bushland Terriers

We have to admit that when we first heard the term Bushland Terrier, we thought of some kind of scrawny Jack Russel type dog from the African veldt, but, no, it turns out that a Bushland Terrier is a cross between a Scottish Terrier and a Cairn, so named because it is said to have originated in Australia.

One of our readers wrote that as the proud owner of a new Bushland puppy, she’s looking for photos of an adult dog.

You can see the puppy at Saralyn’s blog. We’d love to see adult Bushland Terrier photos too, so if you have them, please let us know.

  1. Hi, I have a Bushland Terrier but I didn’t know they were called that until today. His name is Roddy and he’ll be 13 this year. I have pictures of him in the photo section of my my myspace page ( Take a look if you’d like!

  2. Hi, I have a 2 year old Bushland terrier. I’d be rermore than happy to share pictures, but I’m not sure how. Email me if you’d like me to send some to you.

  3. We currently have a litter of 6 Bushlands that will be available to go to their new homes in mid April. 2 Wheaten males, 2 Brindle males and 2 Brindle females. Mother and father family pets and can be seen. We live in west central Ohio.

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Adopted two 7 mo old females Bushland Terriers in January and they had no training by a single apartment dweller in Newnan Ga.Boy were they wild .They were more trouble than my two Bull Mastiffs ever were but today we are almost sane together. I am the boss and they now know it but I respect them. One is dusty looking with a curly coat and the other is black with graying here and there and a straighter coat and both from the same litter from somewhere in Missouri. Alert ears and eyes that can look thru you. They are growing whiskers but not sure how long they will be. Do not have a clue how to groom or if they do get groomed. Any pictures or advise would be really nice.Would like to know how much the puppys sell for but mine would not be available for thousands of dollars now. Thanks. Bobby

      1. Hi Lou Ann! Unfortunately we are no longer breeding Bushies. Our Cairn Momma gave us three beautiful litters and is now happily in retirement. We still get at least one request a month so I do try to post any adoptable Bushies I happen to find online on our old Facebook page. Feel free to like the page for future info.

  4. Hi Bobby! We have 6 currently in our second litter of Bushlands with several color variations. Sounds like the first one you are talking about (dusty looking) is a Wheaten though none of our have ever had a curly coat so I’m questioning somewhat if they are actually Bushlands. Anyway, the black with graying is more than likely starting to brindle. Cairns (1/2 of a Bushland) can change colors multiple times over their lifetime. We have seen this with our Cairn (the mother of our Bushlands). Our are low to no shed. You may have to take some time and gently pull the dead hairs out (google “hand stripping terrier”). We use a grooming tool (the Furminator) that does this pretty well. Depending on how long your curly coated pup’s fur gets you could get a Scotty clip or just a “puppy” clip to keep it manageable.
    They make wonderful little dogs. We live on 2.5 acres and Mom, Dad have proven to be good watchdogs and mousers and we’re hoping that will trickle down to pups. I’m contemplating keeping one to train as a livestock guardian for our chickens!
    I feel for you have two together tho. We have 6 waiting for new homes right now and the fighting can be a bit overwhelming.
    We charge $350 for ours.
    Best of luck to you and your Bushlands!

  5. mite you or any one else have any of these little trouble makers, bushland terriers that is? we have one that we got at our local pound and lets just say she’s got us right where she wants us. we’d like to get another one so she’d have a play mate on our 10 acres. a older rescue or a pup from a breeder would both work. please let me know as we’ve had a hard time finding one. thank you, Mike Shenaman

    1. Hi Mike! Unfortunately we are no longer breeding Bushlands but get multiple requests monthly for them. No one I know of, and I hear it from wannabe adopters, are breeding Bushlands in the States anymore. Most of the pups from our last litter in fact were rehomed out of state as people understand their rarity. Sorry I can’t be of more help. Good luck in your search. If I do hear of any Bushies available I’ll come back and post the info. Feel free to message me at our Facebook page Sadees Bushland Babes to leave contact info.!
