(Mini Fox Terrier) (Mini Foxi) (Mini Foxie) The Miniature Fox Terrier breed is known as the ‘Mini Foxie’ in its native Australia. There are only three permitted color combinations: black and white, tan and white, and tri color (black, white and tan). Full-colored coats are not permitted. The coat must be short, fine, and smooth – a wiry or coarse coat is considered a fault. The Miniature Fox Terrier has pointed, erect ears set high on the skull – however ear tips that fold over slightly are not faulted. The eyes are dark in color, medium sized and oval in shape. The mouth has a strong jaw with a regular bite – overshot or undershot jaws are considered faults. The length of the body should be in proportion to its height. The foot of the adult Mini Foxie is a distinctive oval shape, not round. Pups have round shaped feet for a few months, gradually maturing to an oval shaped foot. The tail can be docked or undocked, or it can be a natural bobtail. The Mini Foxie is a fine boned dog; weight should never exceed 12 pounds.
This breed lives 14 to 16 years on average.
