The adventurous Smooth Fox Terrier originated in the British Isles in the 17th century. Fox Terriers were often used during grand foxhunting events along with horses and huge packs of hounds. The strong little terriers rode in saddlebags and were released to hunt foxes. The tenacious Foxie would then dig and bark until the fox would give up its cover and the chase could begin again.

Today, you are more likely to see the spirited sporting terrier as a pet or show dog.
