About this Breed

The smooth Fox Terrier is, today, a trusted a ball o dog. These mid-sized terriers are renown for their determination and loyal demeanour. They are rather long lived and are very good with children and families. Foxies are very loving and can very often be found snuggling into the couch with a family member or chasing a ball or other toy in the house or yard, since they love to play. The fox terrier is the oldest and largest of the British terriers. They were bred as early as the 18th century to harass the namesake fox along with other small game. Their affectionate nature and dedication to their human families makes them a particularly good companion dog for many urban dwellers. One of the oldest breeds recognized by an official kennel club, the smooth fox terrier bas been recognized in Great Britain since the late 1870s. They are very well adapted to the task of hunting small animals in a temperate climate. In fact, they were bred to flush foxes in a very hound-like manner, going to ground and barking like mad. They also possess great stamina, as they were bred to keep up with very energetic foxhounds. Smooth fox terriers are smart dogs, with lively, dark and intelligent eyes. Their coat is white, short all around, with brown or black markings around the face and back. Their heads are very tapered and come to a point. Ears are upright and folded over and they are very densely muscular, especially evident in their thick necks and strong jaws. Though they can be aggressive with other animals, they are never aggressive with people and can be trusted with the human members of the "pack." There are several related dogs that are descended from the foxie and many of the "yapping" terrier breeds can trace this trait back to the fox terrier that was bred to harass prey animals with their barks, nips and yips. Though not common today, the smooth-coat fox terrier continues to make a very good pet for many households that are keen to have a close associate that is good with the whole family. Those who live in the country will want to make sure they're not too near roads if they intend to let their dogs range, since foxys are so fixed upon prey that they have leapt in front of more than one car while on the chase.
