Tenterfield Terrier

The Tenterfield Terrier is a small, lightweight terrier akin to Miniature Fox Terriers, and Rat Terriers. The Tenterfield Terrier has English origins but, like dog breeds such as the Miniature Fox Terrier, the Australian Terrier, the Silky Terrier, and the Australian Cattle Dog, was developed uniquely in Australia.

The Tenterfield Terrier is a small dog with a short, fine coat, predominantly white with markings in black, tan, liver or brindle. The preference is for a docked tail, but short tails or bobtails also occur. They stand 27 cm (10.5") and weigh around 5 kg (10 lb). While sometimes confused with the Jack Russell, the Tenterfield Terrier has a finer build and a slightly arched skull.

Despite its small stature, the dog is friendly with an outgoing, adaptable nature, bold in the way of terriers and is intelligent. The coat is low maintenance for grooming purposes. Although they can live to 20 years in good health, the average lifespan is from 12 to 14 years.
