Before choosing a smooth-haired fox terrier puppy, once again consider how ready you are to take care of the dog.
Smooth Fox Terrier with a puppy
Can you imagine what difficulties might arise? Are you aware that your life will change for a long time? Is it your decision or have you succumbed to children's persuasion? Who will the dog stay with if you go on a business trip or vacation? Are you ready for expenses not only for food, but also for a veterinarian, care products? Do all family members share your enthusiasm?
Visit several exhibitions, chat with fox terrier breeders and other owners. This way you can see if this breed really suits you.
Choose a good nursery with a proven track record. This will not give a 100% guarantee that in the future you will not have problems, but will significantly increase the chances of having a healthy puppy. If possible, check out a few litters.
Get to know the puppy's parents, study their pedigrees. Adult dogs should not be aggressive or cowardly. The puppy itself must be well-fed, lively and cheerful. Eyes, ears, nose - clean, no discharge. Evaluate your teeth: the bite should be scissor-shaped, 4 fangs and 6 incisors.
Ask if the baby has taken anthelmintic drugs.
A puppy must be branded or chip 45 days old.
Find out how puppies were fed. At first you will have to stick to the same diet. If you later want to change something, do it gradually and carefully.
It is better to get a puppy at the age of 45 - 60 days.
