Description (Smooth FoxTerrier)

General

He must present a gay, lively and active appearance, bone and strength in a small compass are essentials. But he must not be cloddy. The terrier like the Hound must in no way be leggy, but also must not be short on the leg. He should stand like a clerely made hunter, coverina a lot of ground, yet with a short back.

Characteristics

Alert, quick of movement, keen of expression, on tiptoe of expectation.

Temperament

He is a dog with friendly charm, as most Terriers are, a pleasant companion with a love of exercise, never lazy, always ready for a game, whether just a romp on the lawn, or the more serious matter of chasing rabbits. He is clean, mannerly in the house, quiet except when he feels that intrusion of some sort is imminent, when he becomes one of the best guards.

History

The modern Fox Terrier started about 1860 from which time pedigrees can be traced. One of the first dogs of note was "Old Jock" who was first shown in Birmingham in 1862. He was said to have been a smart well balanced Terrier, with perhaps too much daylight under him, and perhaps wanting some in jaw power. But he was at least away from the Bull Terrier type.

Origin

He started life in England as the old English Terrier,the sort of dog mentioned by Dame Juliana Berners in 1486, and a century later by Dr. Caius, when he speaks of "Another sorte which hunteth the Fox and Badger or Greye onely, whom we call "Terrars".

Utilization

Used in stables to keep down vermin, and also to dig out foxes from the holes.
