HISTORY

When fox hunting became popular in England in the late 17th century, hunters found the need for a dog that could go to ground and bolt the quarry.Early fox terriers were primarily smooth-coated, but the wire coat persisted. By the end of the 19th century, smooth and wire-coated Fox Terriers were in great demand, both as companions and show dogs. The Fox Terrier was recognized by United Kennel Club in 1912.
