The Tenterfield Terrier is believed to have been created with the smallest Fox Terrier puppies and other small breeds. They were bred around the areas of Tenterfield, a small town in New South Wales. In the early 1800's these mini Fox Terriers were used as working dogs on Australian farms to help with the invasion of foxes, rats and rabbits. It wasn't until the 1920's that the mini Fox Terriers became more popular household pets. The name Tenterfield Terrier was suggested in the 1900's by TV personality, Don Burke.
Similar to the Miniature Fox Terrier, the Tenterfield Terrier is a small terrier with short, smooth coat. Their coat are either black and white, tan and white, or black, tan and white.

We are the new owners of Carrara Pet Shop and would like to make a difference in the pet market. We are absolute animal lovers and all care will be taken to ensure our animals come to us healthy and happy, and remain that way until they go to their forever homes. We will be working with our avian and animal vets, breeders and research to make this possible.

Carrara Pet Shop is also part of a weekend market (Carrara Markets), so feel free to drop in whilst out for a bite to eat or shopping.

We specialise in puppies, kittens, mice, guinea pigs (when available), fish, baby chicks, birds and reptiles (coming soon). We also have a great range of pet food and products.

We have made changes and have many more to come whilst trying to keep disruption to a minimum. All our prices are researched so we can become the cheapest pet store in QLD.

If you see a cheaper price (exluding online stores and in store specials) bring proof into us and we will match it, if we can beat it, we will.
