Miniature Fox Terriers are the pocket rocket versions of their cousin, the Fox Terrier. Almost half their weight and size, they are faster than their bigger counterparts and have more chase and hunting instinct in their blood.
Mini Foxies, as they are often called, are brave, intelligent, explosive and full of action. They need to be well trained, as they will hunt for pleasure and won't distinguish between a venomous snake and a harmless one.
Like a standard Fox Terrier, Mini Foxies want adventure, preferably a few times a day. They love to roughhouse and investigate new things and are always open for new activates. To get your partnership off to the right start it is important to use lots of motivation and consequences in their upbringing.
They love to dig outside for snails or any other small animals. Important: Don't use any snail bait or rat poison when living with a Miniature Fox Terrier.
Mini Fox Terriers play rough with other dogs and early socialisation is of upmost importance, along with teaching them clear boundaries.
