What is a Smooth Foxingese?

The Smooth Foxingese, also known as the Smooth Fox Terrier and Pekingese Mix, is a hybrid breed that originated in Great Britain. This affectionate and lively dog is the result of crossing a Smooth Foxingese and a Pekingese.

History and origin

The history of the Smooth Foxingese is relatively recent. This mixed breed originated in the United Kingdom, though its parent breeds, the Smooth Fox Terrier and the Pekingese, both have a much longer history.

Character and temperament

In terms of temperament, Smooth Foxingeses are considered friendly and affectionate. They love to be in the company of their family and therefore require a lot of social interaction. They are also intelligent and curious, which shows that they like to be challenged both physically and mentally.

Another characteristic of this breed is their loyalty. They are attached to their family and are protective of their home. It is important to socialize them properly from a young age so that they do not become overly protective and thus develop aggression towards strangers.

Suitability and attitude

The Smooth Foxingese is a great family dog that gets along well with both children and other pets. In addition, he is adaptable and can live in more diverse environments. However, he needs regular physical and mental activity.

  • Affectionate and Lively: The Smooth Foxingese is known for his cheerful nature and love of fun and games. He is extremely loyal to his family and enjoys the company of his humans.
  • Adaptable: Although he needs a fair amount of exercise, the Smooth Foxingese can adapt well to a wide variety of living conditions.
  • Easy to Groom: His short, smooth coat requires minimal grooming.

The Smooth Foxingese combines the best traits of his parent breeds to make a great companion for any family. He is affectionate, lively and adaptable, making him a popular choice among dog lovers.

Care and health

With its double coat, regular weekly brushing should be enough to keep its coat clean and shiny.

Despite their mix of two breeds, Smooth Foxingese are surprisingly hardy and healthy. This mixed breed can be affected by some health issues that affect both parent breeds, such as eye problems or patellar luxation. It is important to ensure regular vet visits for prevention.

Breeding the Smooth Foxingese

Breeding the Smooth Foxingese requires careful consideration. Both parent breeds have vastly different personalities and characteristics, so the temperament of the puppies may vary.

Responsible breeders should know both parent breeds well to ensure they produce healthy, well-balanced puppies.

The Smooth Foxingese is a small to medium sized dog. Its appearance is the result of a harmonious blend of its parent breeds. In many cases, he has a short, smooth coat that can be of various colors, including black, white, shades of brown, and combinations thereof.

His face is mostly Pekingese, with a flat nose and large, prominent eyes, while his build is more like that of a fox terrier, slender and athletic.
