Smooth Fox Terrier

Smooth Fox Terrier

Fox Terriers have a rich history going back at least 300 years, if not longer, and have been used as the foundation breed for several other breeds. Although the Wire Fox Terrier and Smooth Fox Terrier were shown together for many years, and in early years were bred together, experts agree that they come from different backgrounds. The Smooth Fox Terrier is probably descended from a smooth-coated black and tan terrier breed, the Bull Terrier, the Beagle, and, most likely, a dash of Greyhound.

The Smooth Fox Terrier stands 14 to 15.5 inches tall and weighs 15 to 19 pounds, although weight is less important than the dog’s fitness. The head is long and wedge-shaped, the eyes small and dark, and the ears small and V-shaped. The body is strong and fit and shorter than the dog is tall. The tail is docked. The coat is short and hard and is predominantly white with patches of color. The short coat should be brushed twice weekly. This is a very active dog who needs vigorous daily exercise. A securely fenced yard is advisable; this dog is not particularly suited to apartment living.

The smooth fox terrier enjoys daily runs, playtime on the agility course, and a chance to hunt for rodents and bugs in the woodpile. Without enough daily exercise, this dog will find something to amuse itself, and that could be destructive. Early training is recommended. Because Smooth Fox Terriers are bright, they are able to think for themselves. Firm and structured yet fun training can help teach household rules and social manners. The Smooth Fox Terrier needs an owner who understands the terrier temperament, their love of fun and activity, and their ability to be hardheaded at times. This breed can be good with older children but may be too rowdy for younger kids. The smooth fox terrier is not always good with other dogs, especially those of the same sex, and should not be trusted with smaller pets. Health concerns include hip and knee problems, allergies, and Cushing’s disease.
