    I've always thought that my dog Tips had Mini Foxie blood in him, but we were never sure. I know that he's definitely not a pure Mini Foxie, due to his color, but now I'm wondering if he's even a Mini Foxie at all. Any help you can give will help satisfy my curiousity.

    Mind you, he's 14 now, just incase any confusion arises.

    I don't know anything about the breed except what I read here http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/miniaturefoxterrier.htm I guess he could have some in there somewhere but it doesn't look like a lot. Does he have any other characteristics of the breed like these: Loyal, inquisitive, fearless, active and adaptable. Miniature Fox Terriers have an almost dual personality: at the first sign of suspicion, danger or alarm, the demure, pampered lapdog turns instantly into a fearless watchdog, tenacious vermin killer and intrepid hunter. They are good with children who are old enough to distinguish between a dog and a plush toy, and generally get along with other pets. However, like all terriers, the Mini Fox Terrier cannot distinguish between pet rodents or pet reptiles and vermin, and should not be left alone with such animals.

    It's difficult or impossible to tell what's in a crossbreed, as many different combinations can give the same 'look'.

    I can say with complete confidence that Tips is definitely is adorable, with a loving owner.

    If you'd like information on purebred Mini Foxies, you can find it at the official website: www.minifoxie.org

    Cheers!
