Tenterfield Terrier Club of Western Australia
In 2002 the Tenterfield Terrier became an official Australian breed and since then these little dogs have gone from strength to strength.
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.
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.
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.
Temperament is friendly and active. Tenterfields have a life span of 12-14 years, are low maintenance and recommended for families with young children and for the elderly.
