Sinopsis:


Thoroughbred in appearance, the Fox Terrier reigns as one of the world’s most beloved companions, the proverbial children’s dog, and one of the most accomplished show dogs in history. Whether clad in a dense, crisp wire coat or a straight, hard smooth coat, the Fox Terrier is a handsome, distinctive member of the terrier family that enjoys popularity on every continent. Known to be friendly, forthcoming, and fearless traits Fox Terriers exhibit regardless of their roles in their owners’ lives this iconic breed makes an ideal comrade for loving owners of any age. Written by terrier breeder and expert Muriel P. Lee, this Comprehensive Owner’s Guide begins with a chapter devoted to the history of both the Smooth and Wire Fox Terriers in England and America, illustrated with photographs and paintings of famous breed representatives through the ages. Given the breed’s astounding success as Best in Show victor at the famous Westminster Kennel Club dog show, the Fox Terrier’s record as a show dog in America is astounding and speaks to the undeniable greatness of this breed. Lee’s chapter on the breed’s characteristics (including physical and temperamental traits) will help every potential owner decide whether this terrier breed is a good fit for his or her life.

New owners will welcome the well-prepared chapter on finding a reputable breeder and selecting a healthy, sound puppy. Chapters on puppy-proofing the home and yard, purchasing the right supplies for the puppy as well as house-training, feeding, and grooming are illustrated with photographs of handsome adults and puppies. In all, there are over 135 full-color photographs in this useful and reliable volume. The author’s advice on obedience training will help the reader better mold and train into the most well-mannered dog in the neighborhood. The extensive and lavishly illustrated chapter on healthcare written by Dr. Lowell Ackerman provides up-to-date detailed information on selecting a qualified veterinarian, vaccinations, preventing and dealing with parasites, infectious diseases, and more. Sidebars throughout the text offer helpful hints, covering topics as diverse as historical dogs, breeders, or kennels, toxic plants, first aid, crate training, carsickness, fussy eaters, and parasite control. Fully indexed.
