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.
In 2002 the Tenterfield Terrier became an official Australian breed and since then these little dogs have gone from strength to strength.
The Club is willing to re-house Tenterfields. Members often take on dogs that are handed in for a variety of reasons and all find new loving homes.
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.
