The Smooth Fox Terrier is an active, friendly and playful breed. They are predominantly white in color with black or tan markings. Fox Terriers are highly trainable and excel in events such as agility. Originally in the same category as the Wire Fox Terrier, the breeds became separate in 1984.

History

The Smooth Fox Terrier originated in the British Isles in the 17th century. Owned by farmers who needed help eradicating vermin, the breed used its keen nose, remarkable eyesight and stamina to drive fox and other quarry out from their underground dens. Although seldom used for hunting today, the breed still maintains its drive and determination. They will dig tirelessly for underground vermin.

Temperament

The Smooth Fox Terrier has a sleek, easy to maintain coat. Its sturdiness and size combined with its friendly and playful nature make it an excellent companion for children. They are bold but not aggressive towards people. Fox Terriers make excellent watch dogs in the home. New owners should be aware that the breed?۪s innate sense to dig may affect the family yard or flower beds unless the dog is taught otherwise.
