The Club is proud of its tradition of accepting Tenterfields to re-house. Members often take on dogs that are handed in for a variety of reasons and all find new loving homes. Each year the club holds two sausage sizzles to raise funds for (i) junior handlers and (ii) a dog rescue organisation that is run by volunteers. These sausage sizzles usually raise $1000 each.
15 May at 10 am - Fun day at Rockingham Dog Beach. Sausage sizzle and lure available. Cnr Governor and Rockingham Beach Roads.
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.

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