Prefix : RANGEAIRE (Tenterfield Terrier)
Lucas, a natural bob tail (NTB)came to live with us aged 10 months. Since then he has won 6 Best Exhibit in Specialty Show, a dozen other all-breeds and Specialty Best in Show awards, plus many Best in Group awards and is Victoria's only Grand Champion Tenterfield Terrier. Lucas is also currently the only Tenterfield Terrier in Victoria to hold an Earthdog title NE, proving he has the ability to perform the job for which he was bred.
Lucas is a popular stud dog in Victoria, having sired some 15 litters. Among these 10 Champions from 9 different bitches already have attained the title of Australian Champion in 4 States, and one Flyball Champion.
'Rangeaire' comes into Tenterfield Terriers with considerable experience, having bred some 80 Champion Airedale Terriers in direct line. So, the decision to 'downsize' to Tenterfields was not taken lightly! With the addition of two bitches, we aim to selectively breed to establish correct breed type and balance within this breed. This includes consolidating an esthetically pleasing tail length, making full use of the natural bob tail gene that naturally occurs in this fascinating, recently recognized Australian breed.
We are always ready to advise and assist with respect those newcomers to Tenterfields and/or showing and breeding dogs.
