About The Breed!
The dedication and hard work of many individuals in each state helped the Tenterfield, or 'Tentie" as they are affectionately known, to become recognised and the breed is now part of the 'official' dog world. A true terrier, he is a strong, active, agile working dog. The Tenterfield is at home either hunting larger vermin on the land, hunting smaller vermin around the home and property, or curled up on a loving knee in front of the fire. Confident, with an eagerness to learn, he shows great loyalty to his owner and although bold and fearless at work, the Tenterfield gets on well with both children and the elderly. Tenties are now to be seen in the show ring, competing in agility, endurance and earth dog trials and many other environments. Developed in Australia, he can now claim to be a 'True Aussie' and a great mate!
