Fox Terriers are very elegant, smart and stylish little dogs. This breed has a flat, tapering, narrow skull, and ears that fold forward making "V" shaped flaps. It is bold and energetic. It is an affectionate, cheerful and brave little dog; which makes an excellent family pet.

There are three varieties of this breed: Smooth, Wirehaired and the American Toy Terrier or Amertoy. The Wirehaired Fox Terrier is dressed in a wiry white coat with black or brown markings. The Toy Fox Terrier may be physically small, but this is a robust little terrier that retains all the passion of its Fox Terrier ancestors.


White with black or brown markings.


The short coat of the Smooth Fox Terrier is easy to groom. Brush with a firm bristle brush, and bathe or dry shampoo when necessary. This breed is an average shedder. If your Wirehaired Fox Terrier will be a pet, you can get away with brushing it with a firm bristle brush and bathing only when necessary. To keep your Wirehaired Fox Terrier's coat looking best, it must be stripped several times a year and more frequently for show dogs. The Wirehaired Fox Terrier sheds little to no hair and is good for allergy sufferers. The Amertoy is a light shedder. Occasionally comb and brush the smooth coat.

Health Issues:

Deafness may be a problem in predominantly white dogs. Some minor concerns are: post nasal drip, lens luxation, distichiasis, cataracts, Legg-Perthes, and shoulder dislocation. The Toy Fox Terrier is a fairly healthy breed; however, some are prone to legg calve perthes and stifle, which are typical Toy problems. Some dogs are allergic to beet pulp (this is fairly common), also corn, and wheat. To minimize the risk of your terrier developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a Fox Terrier puppy from a reputable breeder.
