A few words about placement -

Wire and Smooth Fox Terriers are bred to be independent thinkers, capable of tactical maneuvering for vermin and other sport. Their high level of intelligence and stubbornness makes them a dog that is not suited for everyone.

True to their heritage, they have strong instincts to chase and seize small fleeing creatures. Therefore, unless the dog is proven to be cat-friendly, we do not adopt to homes with cats or other small animals (birds, rabbits, hamsters, etc.).

While Fox Terriers can get along with other dogs, we recommend that your dog and the Rescue meet first to ensure they will get along. Aggression toward other dogs of the same sex is normal for Terriers and 2 females should not live in the same household. We do not adopt female Fox Terriers to homes which already have a female dog.
