Smooth Fox Terrier |England|

Smooth Fox Terrier |England|

The Smooth Fox Terrier was favored by hunters during the nineteenth century and used in conjunction with a pack of Foxhounds. The Fox Terrier located the fox after it had hidden in a burrow or hole and barked vigorously to alert the hunters. Originally both Smooth and Wire Fox Terriers were classed as one breed and often bred together. It was not until the latter part of the nineteenth century that breeders started to keep the two separate, and in 1876 the Officers of the Fox Terrier Club established separate breed standards. Smooth Fox Terriers are believed to have developed from Old English Terriers, Black and Tan Terriers, Bull Terriers, Beagles, and Greyhounds. They make lively companions for active homes, but can be wary of strangers and other dogs. They also have a tendency to bark and dig.
