The Fox Terrier is a small sized dog that comes in two varieties: Smooth Fox Terrier and Wire Fox Terrier. The Smooth Fox Terrier has a smooth and silky coat while the Wire Fox Terrier is double-coated and has a rougher coat with longer fur on the body and face.
Both varieties of Fox Terriers tend to not shed as much hair and are quite low maintenance. The Smooth Fox Terrier needs to be groomed only occasionally while the Wire Fox Terrier should be groomed more regularly due to its coat. Both breeds come in blended colours of white, black, beige, brown, and dark brown.
Female Fox Terriers usually weigh up to 7 kg and males can reach up to 9 kg. Both the wire and smooth breeds can grow up to 35 cm. The average lifespan of Fox Terriers is 10 to 15 years, but some are known to live longer.
