  • About Smooth Fox Terrier Breed

    White hair, worn by Smooth Fox Terrier, was specially bred to fight foxes, but also for self-protection. Because they tend to be covered in dirt when they emerge from the pit, some hapless terriers are attacked by their hunting companions, large hounds, who mistake them for prey such as a fox. To avoid this confusion, breeders mated the terrier with a foxhound, resulting in a white coat. The flat-furred fox terrier has a long tapered snout, round black eyes, a long, sloping neck, a short back, and a cheerfully erect tail, all of which are similar to those of its close relatives, the bristle fox. The only difference between them is the length of the hair. Although the flat-haired fox terrier is not as well known as the bristle-hunting fox, its features are so recognizable that after breed standards were established in 1876, it became very popular in Europe, especially in Sweden in northern Europe. Fox terriers with flat fur are quick and lively by nature, along with their keen eyesight and sense of smell, making them one of the favorite hunting animals.
