Small Female Tenterfield Terrier Dog

This beautiful girl is Spirit and she is a perfect natured 10 year old Tenterfield Terrier. Her name suits her – she is full of Spirit! She has settled down very well with her foster family
Spirit may be ten but still likes to play like a youngster, running and playing with her foster brothers. She is very loving and if you like a dog that snuggles right into you then you’ve found your perfect dog. She loves waking everyone up with a big snuggle and lots of kisses all over your face until you say good morning. Where ever you are in the house – she’ll be right there near you. She is extremely loyal to her foster family. Call her while you’re sitting on the couch and she’ll jump up and give you a snuggle and kiss. Stop scratching her and she’ll let you know she wants more by hitting you with her paw.
She loves her walks and easily does a long walk every day. Excellent on leash with no pulling or tugging and stays to the left of you. Off leash she is a dream – will stay near you and doesn’t wander too far in front. She’ll come back when called.
Spirit has definitely had some training and understands some basic commands. She is also a great car traveller and doesn’t seem stressed at all.
Around other smaller dogs Spirit is quite relaxed and happy to go and say hi to them. She does seem a bit timid around bigger dogs though.
Spirit is quite a good guard dog as well – very vocal when the doorbell rings and visitors arrive who she doesn’t know. She will bark but no aggression has been shown. She calms down once she realises the visitors are fine.
She is fully house trained and goes outside to do her business through the doggy door (which is actually left opened as one of her foster brothers refuses to nudge it open!).
She is a good eater and doesn’t seem to be very fussy with food but does stop when full.
Things you needs to know:
Spirit is very timid around smaller children so preferably no young kids at home. She does love teenagers though.
She loves small dogs but is timid around large dogs.
Spirit's ideal home would either be an older home where her human can dote on her or a home with another playful canine companion
