About Tenterfields

 Tenterfield album......

In 2002 the Tenterfield Terrier became an official Australian breed and since then these little dogs have gone from strength to strength. 

The Tenterfield Terrier is one of a small group of dog breeds that can have pups born with a naturally short tail known as a natural bob tail.  As long as one parent has the natural bob tail gene (which has now been identified), pups within the one litter can have a variety of tail lengths from almost no tail to a full (or long) tail.  Pups born with a natural bob tail do not suffer any genetic problems due to the presence of the gene. 

Pups needing a new home.

Regrettable sale of three pups, all with DogsWest papers, vaccinated, microchipped, etc.  Contact Keith or Val for more information on 9490 7724.

Our Next Event

Fun Day Sunday 9:30 am on 19 July 2015 at Rushton Park, off Orlando Street, Kelmscott.  BYO picnic lunch.  Enjoy lure chasing and a walk along the river. 

The preferred height is around 28 cm (11 inches).  The weight should be in proportion to the dog.  The coat is easy to care for as it is a short, smooth, single coat.

Tenterfield Terriers are a big talent in a little package.  They are the ideal house dog, they love being with the family, need little room indoors and can adapt to a small yard.  

A little mate with a heart as big as Australia, a dog for people aged from 1 to 100.  A dog the whole family can share and enjoy. One that is hardy, outgoing, loyal and bold.
