    Congrats on your decision, mini foxies are pretty much the best breed ever. They're fantastic dogs but can be very challenging to train. They're fearless and social, great with kids and other animals, but they're also noisy and bossy and always want to do their own thing. Mine goes with me everywhere but she regularly drives me nuts. I don't recommend them to a first-time owner unless you're prepared to read a lot of books and put in a whole heap of hard work. Please make sure you insist on an undocked dog, mini foxies have nice tails and its a shame to see them cut off.


    Another variation of the mini foxie is the Tenterfield terrier. LINK

    Thanks mosh for your input it has been ten years since I have had a pet the last one was a jack Russell
    And he was a handfull and I have been doing some research and found the mini which I am hoping is a notch
    Down from a jack but still having the same temperament would you agree

    lol, I wouldn't say they are a notch down, they run a lot faster and have a lot more energy. Like I said they are pretty much the best breed ever but you need the patience of a saint to train them.

    Mini Fox Terriers and Tenterfields make JRT look laid back and lazy.

    But they are slightly smaller and easier to control - if you can catch them.

    What do you mean by easier to control than a JRT are they easier to train ?

    Hi George

    easier to control - in that they are a little bit smaller and lighter - so if you have hold of them - they're easier to manage than a JRT. If you were hoping that they were less of a handful than a JRT - only in size. They're more excitable and faster.

    Both breeds, in my experience, are easy to train if you have something they love or want eg food or a tug toy (that looks a bit like a mouse on a string). But if you don't train them - both are a handful.

    If you want something that is more laid back - then maybe a cavalier king charles spaniel or a bichon etc.
