Miniature Fox Terriers are small dogs, which means you should be careful not to overfeed them. Their diet should be reduced in calories compared to that of a normal dog, but should still contain foods such as vegetables, eggs and meat. This breed is easy to keep healthy; however, it tends to be allergic to corn and beef. When it comes to training, the Mini Fox Terrier is both capable and willing to work.
Mini Fox Terriers descend from Fox Terriers, as their name suggests. In addition, they have Chihuahuas, Manchester Terriers, Miniature Pinschers and Italian Greyhounds in their blood. Since most of the breeds it descends from are adapted to city life, so is the Miniature Fox Terrier. This means that you don't need to take any steps to adapt the dog to the urban life.
Training the Mini Fox Terrier can be problematic when it is done improperly, but if you are patient, you can teach the dog about boundaries at home easily. In order to ensure that the dog is well-behaved, you have to take it out on walks, where it can release its energy. Play is also important for Mini Fox Terriers.
The coat is very easy to groom. Also, the dog is a light shedder, so it does not require constant brushing and grooming.
