Default TENTERFIELD TERRIERS, whoops, got stuck in caps Lock

k, i know i look up the information, but here you get personal experiences, i found a picture of one and thought it was so cute,. im now interested in getting one in a few years,

how big do they get?
what were they bred for?
are they natoriously (sp?) dificult to train?
how much activity do they need?
how much mental stimulation do they need?
do they need other companions?
do they need to be inside dogs?
do they tend to be overly agressive or nippy?

even if they need lots of excercise, training, care, stimulation, time and effort, it wont change my mind if i decide on one, all my dogs willl have a HUGE amount of excercise, very little time left alone and very good training...
just interested in them because i saw a picture on http://www.awlqld.com.au/rehoming.htm i fell in love with "charles" a little black, white and tan tennterfield terrier.

That looks like a great site! Isis and Churchill don't look like GSD/Rottie crosses though - they sure look like straight GSD!

Looking at Charles, I'm wondering if Tennterfield Terrier isn't the Australian version of our Rat Terrier. Rat Terriers are fun little dogs; vocal, playful, active, affectionate, great vermin dogs - you won't have any rats or mice around! Ratties are usually good alone or with other dogs - they're very adaptable and very bright.

Just don't let them run loose around a Terrier! Terriers are pretty smart about figuring out who is family and who isn't, but sometimes instinct will take over if you put too much temptation out there.

Terriers aren't little dogs, they're compact dogs. You get a 70 pound dog in a 10 pound body, lol!

I love Terriers! I'd have several if I didn't know they'd be coyote bait out here

When we were on camp in year seven. At night all the dongoes would come in and try to take our bread lol
