Smooth chisoxy:Chihuahua and Smooth Fox Terrier Mix

Hybrid Breed

Chihuahua + Smooth Fox Terrier


The origin of the Smooth Chisoxy

The Smooth Chisoxy is a crossbreed of the Chihuahua and the Smooth Fox Terrier. This particular animal cross has its roots in the United States, where breeders merged both breeds, for the sake of uniting their characteristics, to create a unique pet.

The history of the Smooth Chisoxy began only in the last few decades and is therefore considered a relatively new breed. Breeders began by crossing Chihuahuas and Smooth Chisoxy Fox Terriers to create a balanced, active and small breed that would make a perfect companion for families and individuals.

The Smooth Chisoxy is characterized by its liveliness, friendliness and affection. He is known for his loyalty to his owners and his ability to get along well with other pets and children. However, due to his high energy and intelligence, the Smooth Chisoxy needs regular exercise and mental stimulation.

The Smooth Chisoxy is a friendly, energetic and affectionate dog. They are known for their curiosity and intelligence, which makes them great pets for active owners. Their significant amount of energy requires regular exercise as well as mental stimulation. However, they love to entertain their owners and are always outgoing and open to new people and situations. The personality of this breed includes:

  • Vivacity: they are active and playful dogs that need constant exercise and mental stimulation.
  • Loyalty: like most small dog breeds, they are very loyal and affectionate to their owners.
  • Curiosity: They are extremely curious and love to be around when it comes to discovering new things.

While they can be a bit hesitant around strangers at first, once they feel comfortable they are quite friendly and sociable.

As a small breed, they fit well in apartments and smaller living spaces as long as they get enough exercise and playtime.

Care of the Smooth Chisoxy

Grooming a Smooth Chisoxy is comparatively easy. His short and smooth coat needs regular brushingto stay healthy. A regular bath will help keep the coat clean and reduce skin problems. A Smooth Chisoxy's grooming routine also includes:

  • Dental care: regular brushing prevents dental problems.
  • Ear care: the ears should be checked regularly for infections
  • Paw care: claws should be trimmed regularly

Health of the Smooth Chisoxy

As with any other breed, the Smooth Chisoxy is prone to certain health problems. Chief among these is a tendency to hip dysplasia and patellar luxation. A healthy diet as well as regular exercise can help prevent these conditions.

Visits to a veterinarian should be routine on an annual or semi-annual basis to detect any health problems early.

Breeding the Smooth Chisoxy

Breeding Smooth Chisoxys requires a great deal of knowledge, experience and commitment. Healthy parents are essential for healthy offspring. A reputable breeder will always have a health check of the parents before planning their litter.

In addition, a responsible breeder should ensure that puppies are delivered to their new owners at 8-12 weeks of age and only after they have been vaccinated and dewormed. Proper socialization and imprinting has proven to be an important pillar in the development of a well-balanced dog. Therefore, the breeder should familiarize the puppy with different situations, sounds and environments at an early age.

Its appearance can vary depending on the characteristics it inherits from its parent breeds. His coat is typically short, smooth and dense, similar to that of a smooth-haired Fox Terrier, while his body shape and head are more like a Chihuahua.
