Are Fox Terrier's good with kids? I have an 8 and 2 year old. My mother in law has a large dog and a small one and they both do well with them.

I would not put a TFT with small children. They are very fragile and can easily break their legs if dropped or they jump off of high places. As for temperament, they are fantastic with people and children. (At least the ones I have had) I did have a larger female that was 12 pounds. She was very sturdy and would have been fine with a younger child. My TFT now is only 4.3 lbs and I would not let a small child handle her.

Agreed. My 5 yr old daughter dropped our TFT puppy and broke her leg. Healed well but was a HORRIBLE experience for everyone involved. Either get a larger dog or wait until the kids are older and more mature.
