The Smooth Fox Terrier originated in the 17th century in the British Isles. Farmers used him to get rid of vermin because of his keen sense of smell, great eyesight, endurance and determination to chase and drive his prey from their underground lairs. It wasn’t until 1984 that he became a separate breed from the Wire Fox Terrier.
Today he’s rarely used as a hunting dog but that drive still exists. His colour is white and he has black or tan marks. He’s playful, friendly and active. He’s easy to train and behaves well with children because he’s not aggressive towards people. He’s an ideal watchdog. You need to keep an eye on him as he loves to dig in the backyard and your flower beds may suffer. His coat is simple to care for. His height is 15.5 inches.
