My pet: Fox terrier
by Milva Spagnol
My petís name is Bimbo. It is a dog. Bimbo lives in a small wooden kennel. It has brown eyes. Bimbo likes to eat all food especially meat. Bimbo is a fox terrier dog.
Fox terriers should present a generally gay, lively and active appearance, and have good bone and strength. The fox terrier was created for use in hunting both fox and badger above and below ground. The smooth variety reached a peak in its popularity towards the end of the 19th century. The English fox terrier club in the same country was founded in 1875 and at that stage catered only for smooth variety.
The head of the fox terrier is relieved from being totally wedge shaped by a little delicate chiseling. Ears are small and V shaped and of moderate thickness. The coat is smooth, harsh, dense and flat. White should predominate with coloured spots or patches. The weight of these dogs is about 7 to 8 kilos.
