Unique and Original Dogs By Dezign Creations
The name Fox Terrier or Foxy refers primarily to two different breeds of dog, the Smooth Fox Terrier and the Wire Fox
Terrier, that were independently bred in England in the mid-19th century. The two terrier breeds are very similar, with the
only major difference being the coats. The Smooth Fox Terrier has a smooth, flat, but hard and dense coat, whereas the
Wire Fox Terrier coat should appear broken with a dense, wiry texture. The breeds were established to assist in fox hunting.
Before their development, a hunt would be ruined as soon as the fox reached its hole. The introduction of Fox Terriers into
the hunting party solved the problem. If the fox "went to ground" (reached and entered its lair), the terrier would be sent in
after it. This identified the major requirements for a Fox Terrier. Firstly, it had to have the stamina to run with the Foxhounds.
Secondly, it had to be small enough to follow a fox down its lair. And thirdly, it had to be tough, as a cornered fox was likely to
turn and try to fight off an intruder, so a foxy had to be able to stand up to it.
The term Fox Terrier was generic until the latter part of the 19th Century. It referred to a group of dogs of varying type which
were bred for the hunt. These dogs were often called "foxies" regardless of type or size. The first Fox Terrier, a dog called
"Foiler" or "Old Foiler", was registered by the Kennel Club circa 1875-6, and the breed began the process of standardization.
