Fox Terrier

Must Try

Sebastian Acosta
Sebastian grew up on a goat farm in rural Wisconsin. He learned a lot about different animals as a youngster. While he is no longer in charge of feeding the kids, he still helps maintain the family farm on the weekends. In his free time, he travels the world and finds every opportunity to escape in nature.

What is commonly known as a Fox Terrier is a mix between two breeds of Fox Terrier dogs, Smooth and Wire. John Caius described the Fox Terrier in his 1577 work, English Dogges. Hunters bred Fox Terriers to help them hunt foxes. For example, Fox Terriers could go into burrows and flush out foxes who had tried to escape.

Modern Fox Terriers no longer hunt foxes like they once did. Instead, today’s Fox Terriers come in various qualities and sizes and are mainly owner companions. In addition, Fox Terrier as a breed can be very playful and joyous and get along with kids.

Pros:

  • Intelligent dog and a quick learner.
  • With proper socialization and training, Fox Terriers can be mellow and easygoing.
  • There is no need to spend hours brushing out a Fox Terrier’s coat, which equals minimal grooming.
  • The Fox Terrier’s watchful curiosity makes it a Vigilant watchdog.

Cons:

  • Fox Terriers are independent and tend to want to do their own thing. Hence, without proper training, a Fox Terrier can be a handful.
  • Prone to separation anxiety and excessive barking.
  • These dogs need regular attention in the form of mental and physical influence.
  • Fox Terriers can be offensive to other dogs.

As is the case with any dog breed, understanding what you are getting into before getting the puppy ensures you choose the perfect pet.

  1. I have had smooth Fox terriers, both pure bred and crossed with different hounds for almost 60 years! My current one is a rescue from Mexico, and I believe he is a cross with a whippet. Some 20 years ago, my fox terrier/beagle would wake me in the middle of the night by licking my face because I was a 40 year insulin dependent diabetic and my sugars were low. This was before anyone was training any dogs to alert for anything. They are fabulous dogs!
