Arrival Story:
There aren't many WFT breeders in Australia, so my humans were on a waiting list for about 9 months to get me. Brian says that when you wait 9 months for a baby, it's usually less furry.

I was born in Brisbane on Nov. 23, 2004 to a litter of two at Quinvale Kennels, and I was flown to my home in Melbourne in late January 2005. Being cute let's me get away with a lot and being a wirehaired fox terrier means I always try. Sometimes I have trouble understanding my humans' funny American accents, but watching a lot of American TV shows with Louise helps. There are not many of us WFT's in Australia and I'm always confused with airedale's and schnauzer's. Most people also get my name wrong, calling me Esther, Astro, or Astra. Those few who have seen the Thin Man, however, know it's ASTA.

Hi Pup Pals,
You can read more about my life at:

My mum is currently away working in Israel till July because she's an archaeologist. I like archaeology too - I always bury my pig ears in the garden then later I dig them up and shake dirt all over the house.

Mum always took me for 4-10 mile walks and I missed that, so I am staying with my friends the Figgs (Grant, Mandy, Ellen, and Billy) till mum gets back. Ellen takes me for long walks, Billy lets me sleep on his bed, and Grant and Mandy give me treats. I also divide my time between guarding the house and playing with their 4 cairn terriers. xxx Asta
