    Default Pure Breed Mini Foxy?

    Hi everyone this is my first post here.

    I bought my puppy "Woody" a few months ago from a breeder in Brisbane. He told my he is a pure breed Miniature Fox Terrier. He is 4 and a half months old now. When I take him into public places like the beach most people tell me he looks more like a Jack Russell. I have searched the net for pictures of both breeds and some MF's look just like JR's and vise versa.
    Here is a couple of pictures of him. Judge for yourself if he is a pure breed or a cross. Any feedback will be appreciated.

    He doesn't look like a pure bred MF to me. I feel you have been duped and if you didn;t receive pedigree papers with him then I will guarantee you have been duped.

    I am sure he is gorgeous anyway and will give you just as much love and pleasure

    My advice - unless a dog comes with a pedigree showing it's ancestoral lines, then it is not a pedigree. If you want a pure bred dog, ensure it comes with papers.

    In having said that, Mini Foxies can not be registered with the ANKC like other purebreds are however, they do have a registry and they are reigstered on this and come with a pedgiree showing this.

    At 4.5 months..it's impossible to tell by pic as they are still growing and filling out But I still think yes. Have you asked the breeder for papers?

    Falcon is a cute dog. I see a couple just like him around here.

    I didn't get any papers, as at the time i didn't even know they existed for dogs. I agree it may be too early to tell for sure if he isn't a pure breed.

    At the time I bought him I was impatient about buying a dog. His litter was the only "Mini Foxys" immediately available for purchase. So I bought him.

    It doesn't bother me at all really if he isn't pure breed now as he has become part of the family. He is the size of dog I wanted, an attractive dog, reasonably well behaved and very obedient for his age.

    I am curious to know exactly what type of cross he is though if he isn't pure.

    Well, unless you have dog's papers, or in case it's mixed unless you've seen both parents, you can never be 100 % certain. Maybe if you do DNA testing which is really expensive.
    But he's cute and your pet and it doesn't matter.
