Is the Miniature Fox Terrier right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Mini Foxie

The basics:
The Miniature Fox Terrier could be considered the Australian version of the Toy Fox Terrier developed in the United States. They were probably developed from crosses between Fox Terriers and Manchester Terriers brought by the early Australian settlers who needed a light, fast dog to hunt down vermin ike rabbits and rodents. They are compact and cute, but don't underestimate them. Their ability to dig into tight places makes them a danger to small household pets like mice. In fact, because of their boldness, they might not hesitate to harass a much longer dog. On the plus side, the Mini Foxie's energetic spirit makes them popular in single pet homes, as well as on farms and ranches where they still work chasing pests.

Appearance / health:
The Miniature Fox Terrier is a small dog with erect V-shaped ears. The breed has a characteristic articulate, oval shaped foot. The short, fine coat requires minimal grooming.

Miniature Fox Terriers require moderate to heavy amounts of exercise in the form of daily long walks, play sessions, games, and regular outings with the family, etc.

The Miniature Fox Terrier is generally a healthy breed.

Behavior / temperament:
The Miniature Fox Terrier has a strong prey instinct and makes a good vermin killer. Yes, that means it may chase small pets, so think carefully if you already own small animals before choosing this cutie.
