Smooth Fox Terrier Puppies For Sale
Smooth Fox Terrier Dog Breeders
At one time all dogs that dug into the ground to chase foxes were called Fox Terriers. It was not until 1850 that controlled breeding began resulting in the breed of today. Each English county once had its own Fox Terrier. Originally classic working dogs, today they are mostly companion dogs. They can be obstinate and strong willed and they are not easy to train. They make good watch dogs. Minimal grooming keeps the smooth coat looking good. These dogs weigh 16 to 18 lbs. and stand 13 to 15" at the shoulders.

Spencer is what attitude is all about. He's tough, confident and independent. Because of these admirable traits he's made it very difficult to stick to a schedule of obedience training. Spencer has a mind of his own and decides when he is in the mood to listen.
He's quite a character, none the less, and I'm sure he thinks of himself as king of the hill. At the very least he believes that he is king of the house and that we all play second fiddle to his 'Highness'. We've come to accept Spencer, or should I say, "Sir Spencer" for who he is. And the fact that we can't change him may say a lot about how deep his 'Royal Attitude' runs.
Now beyond that trait, Spencer is a breed of terrier that demands respect and admiration. When a larger and more aggressive dog could logically cause him to put his tail between his legs and run in the opposite direction, my little terrier stands his ground. When a human could easily force discipline upon such a small animal, his attitude makes you step back and wait until he's ready to learn.
With that said, understand that Spencer does like to learn. In fact, he is very quick to pick up new commands and he executes them in such a precise way that one might think he has made a habit of concentrated listening. Of course, we know better. Perhaps it's because he doesn't need to practice. He just needs to be in control and in the mood and he can be whatever he wants to be.
Friendly and outgoing, active and playful -- the Smooth Fox Terrier has been a family favorite for decades. This small dog has a big personality! Remember, this small terrier was originally bred as a vermin hunter; they are likely to consider gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs and other small pets prey.
