Overview
Considered to be one of the oldest terriers, this breed originated in 18th century England as a foxhunter and ratter. Though not as popular as other terrier breeds, they are well known and established. Today the Smooth Fox Terrier is primarily a family companion and show dog.
Character
The Smooth Fox Terrier is a well-proportioned, active, cheerful, and independent breed. They are elegant, eager, compact, and extremely courageous. This is a bold and daring breed that is not easily intimidated and possesses both beauty and brains.

Does your Smooth Fox Terrier bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
A loyal and deeply devoted breed, the Smooth Fox Terrier is also loving and affectionate. They thrive on companionship and attention and do not do well if ignored or are left alone for extended periods of time. This breed does best in a home with older considerate children. Regarded as one of the most aggressive breeds they are not suited for homes with other pets. They are wary of strangers and make excellent watchdogs. Smooth Fox Terriers are not recommended for the novice, apathetic, or sedentary owner.
Care
The Smooth Fox Terrier needs occasional brushing with a firm bristle brush and professional stripping of the coat twice a year. Bathing or dry shampooing should be done when necessary. This breed is prone to such health issues as deafness, postnasal drip, cataracts, Legg-Calve-Perthes disease, lens luxation, and distichiasis.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The coat of the Smooth Fox Terrier is dense, short, flat, and smooth. It is also quite abundant and covers not only the entire body, but the stomach and underside of the thighs as well. The color of the coat is predominately white with black or brown markings. This breed is an average shedder.
Training
This breed requires early intensive and extensive socialization and obedience training. The Smooth Fox Terrier is willful, will challenge authority, and attempt to be dominant. They are prone to excessive barking. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods but must have an experienced owner and handler. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, consistency, and patience. The Smooth Fox Terrier displays talent in agility, fly ball, tracking, and hunting. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Smooth Fox Terrier puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
Boisterous and playful, the Smooth Fox Terrier requires daily physical exercise and mental stimulation. They benefit from and enjoy securely leashed walks, family play sessions such as ball and Frisbee, and a safely fenced area to freely romp and run in. Smooth Fox Terriers will become destructive and bark incessantly if bored or lonely. They will do okay in an apartment provided they are given sufficient exercise, attention, and stimulation. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Are Fox Terriers known to be very hyper?

The Fox Terrier has a lot of energy. They are quick little dogs with a sharp mind that love to play games like tug-of-war, chase and fetch. They can be considered hyper, but only by owners that don't understand the basic needs of this breed. An average of 2 hours of exercise is needed a day for this breed. An hour in the morning and an hour at night, preferably off-leash at a dog park. But remember, this breed has a high prey drive, so keep the dog on a leash when not in a fully secure, fenced in area.

What are the first year vet costs for a female toy Fox Terrier?

The vet costs all depend on the dog and your vet. Some vets cost more then other's and some dogs are more expensive then other's. Although, the average I would say, including spay would be between $500.00 - $700.00. But again, it all depends on the dog and the vet.

Can a smooth Fox Terrier travel with you? If they can, around how much would it cost? If not, are they okay with being left at a kennel for more than a month?

Yes, Fox Terriers can travel well in a car but not so much by air. Most airlines chrg about 125 for small pets but again, think twice about flying. As to leaving them in a kennel for more than a week at the outside is a big no-no for this breed!

I have owned a smooth Foxy. She lived a long and happy 15 years. She was always happy to be put into kennels when we were going away and couldn't have her join us. She was also a great house guest when needing to stay at friends homes, great with small children and happy with a ball. I would happily recommend a puppy such as a Smooth Fox Terrier to anyone who is after a fun, funny and clever dog - just be sure to walk them and play with them.

I am looking for a dog, is a Smooth Fox Terrier good for me? I am twelve and my neighbors have dogs.

The Smooth Fox is not usually a very friendly dog with strangers but in your case it might be very comfortable with other friendly dogs.

A Smooth Fox Terrier is a fun dog. I would recommend that when considering this breed you keep in mind: fencing - they can dig under fences and jump over fences so make sure your yard is secure. They're not good off the lead until they are old and slow. They are a hunting dog after all and love a great chase of a mouse or cat and their fast when they are on a 'mission'. If you want a dog that you don't need to have on a lead all the time this breed is not for you - but don't let that change your mind - they're still fun and easy to care for.
